This is Streif: fast, dangerous and amazing

It is playing with fire and every contestant must be aware of the danger. The most dangerous ski slope in the world awaits athletes – Streif in Kitzbühel. Every year drivers fall, every year paramedics have to take an athlete to the hospital. Nevertheless, the Hanenkamm race is a cult event. For both spectators and drivers.

Few athletes would exchange a Hanenkam landing victory on the Streif in Kitzbühel for an Olympic victory or a World Championship title without hesitation.

This is Streif: Immediately after a sharp start, a lot of courage is required from the drivers. If you do not have self-confidence, you will have your first problems jumping more than 50 meters. With a gradient of 85 percent, the Mausefalle is the steepest point on the Streif. Compression ensues, as the drivers are subjected to intense centrifugal forces.

Circular curve: S curve combination is the next key point and forms the steep slope entrance. The long right turn at the end sets the pace, and slipping as little as possible is important. If the driver pulls out in front of the turn, this can certainly be an advantage.

Steilhang and Gschöss: the technical requirements are very high on the steep slope. Perfect edges and perfect timing are essential to get the goals right. Usually the place is completely icy. It is important to take the same speed with you as Gschöss is followed by a 650m windsurfing pass. Good materials, strong case and good sliding ability are decisive factors here.

Alte Schneise, Seidlalm: The old Schneise is a turbulent and perilous country ride, followed by a rapid change of terrain and light. Patience and perfect body tension are required on Seidlalm. Anyone who straightens up here loses hundreds of hundreds.

Big Shot: Another slide piece is the Larch shot, and it can reach speeds of up to 102 km/h. Mentally, the drivers are already preparing for the next tough section. Legs burn, some slowly reaching their physical limits.

Hausberg Kante: On the courses, there was a wall of fog over the Hausberg Kante, which made jumping more difficult. It follows a tricky curve to the left on the wave, and the goal is to drive as high as possible traversing the wave.

Traversing: Too many bumps make traversing a shaking ordeal, so don’t take off if possible. Drivers are often pushed here and miss the high row. This will be important to take full speed in aiming again.

Target shot and jump on target: In the target shot, the athletes reach the highest speed in the race, up to 140 km/h, as they race for the last metres. Despite being exhausted, the drivers have to pull themselves together again, or else the finish jump veers into the scene. Finally, the snowboarders reach the “Rasmusleitn” in the immediate vicinity of the city in the finish area. Who mastered the main syllables better?
