The first fans are here
Athletes, officials, journalists - Hahnekamm has been a hive of activity since Monday. The only ingredient that was still missing for a perfect "Race Friday" was the spectators - but they're on their way! As usual, the rush began early morning. The first fans to arrive at Kitzbühel-Hahnenkamm Station were very upbeat: "The weather is excellent, we hope the race is just as exciting as last time", said two fans from Lower Austria, who also followed the exciting races on the Streif from the side-lines a couple of years ago. Crowds are also expected to descend on the "Fan-Zone" in the centre of Kitzbühel: "We definitely have enough beer and mulled wine", said one of the stall workers. Most fans are hoping for the same outcome: an Austrian winner! "Hannes Reichelt has only won the Downhill thus far, now it is time for the Super-G", said a fan from Styria with a grin.
