Dear Media Representatives,
On behalf of the Hahnenkamm Race Organizing Committee, may I wish you a warm welcome to the 81st Hahnenkamm Races. We hope you have a safe journey here and find your accommodation comfortable in the tranquil setting of Kitzbühel and the surrounding Hahnenkamm region.
The fact that these Hahnenkamm Races will be no ordinary affair was intensely apparent early on, with programme developments including the acquisition and subsequent surrender, by official decree, of a Slalom double. The pandemic has the whole world firmly in its grip and makes no exception for Kitzbühel and its traditional event.
Media working conditions at HKR 2021 are also impacted by this extraordinary set of circumstances. On behalf of the Press Team, I would like to thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Disciplined implementation of the necessary virus protection measures is a basic prerequisite for official approval of the event.
Nevertheless, I sincerely hope that the sporting events surrounding the 81st edition of the races go down in history once again.
All the best,
Dr. Michael Huber
