The elephant in the room for downhill racers is always Kitzbuhel and the famous Hanenkamm downhill course. Some will say it’s exhilerating; all will say it’s scary. This video, produced by FIS and Jalbert Productions, provides some history of the race along with commentary from downhiller’s who’ve run the course.
It’s sobering and intense and the historic videos can be frightening.
