Fabulous conditions are making it easy for fans to flood to the finish area. “The atmosphere at the Hahnenkamm Races is unparalleled,“ agree  numerous visitors en-route to the racecourse. The race finish area at the foot of Mt. Hahnenkamm is strewn with spectators in colourful attire, giant flags and banners with words of encouragement for the ski stars. The fans are ready and waiting for a thrilling Downhill race.

Members from the Hannes Reichelt fan club are confident:

”Hannes is going to win today! He is the best and has the best fans“.

His admirers have already witnessed his Downhill triumph in 2014, and all hope for a repeat performance today.
In any case, the Salzburg athlete doesn’t have to wait very long for his moment to shine: Reichelt opens this downhill classic with start number 1.
