This weekend was spent in Kitzbühel watching the 73rd Hahnenkamm race. Seeing the downhill live was as spectacular as expected and the ambience among the 42’000 spectators was great.
After the race we went up to the start and checked it out. It takes a lot of guts to launch yourself out of the starting gate here in Kitz, it’s steep and icy as hell.
Up there we met a true legend, Franz Klammer. he won four times in the late seventies.
We also met this guy, not sure what he was doing with those skis. In the evening we watched the prize giving and bib draw for the slalom. It was cool to see Mattias get up there and get his bib.
Afterwards we had dinner and went back to Fieberbrunn. The morning after I went back to support Mattias. He ended up 12th and qualified for the world champs in Schladming, hurray!
