In the discipline rating Dominic Paris from South Tyrol a nose ahead. Anyone who knows the power pack from Ultental knows that they also want to be successful on the Lauberhorn before there is a chamois to be won in Kitzbühel. But also the Austrian Matthew Mayer and the Swiss Niels Hintermann want to make life difficult for their competitors from the country between the Brenner Pass and the Salurner Klause. Hintermann can be described as the big surprise of this year’s downhill winter. The Norwegian Aleksander Aamodt Kilde is always up for success in the fastest discipline, even if there have been four different winners in the four downhills that have been held so far. The Confederate Beat Feuz, the last winner on the Lauberhorn, is about to become a father for the second time. Nevertheless, he wants to be successful and get back in the fight for the small crystal ball with a more than good place, in his case it would be the fifth in a row. his compatriot Marco Odermatt, victorious in the Super-G, wants to continue riding the wave of success and claim another top result in Wengen. The ÖSV gentlemen Daniel Hemetsberger and Otmar Striedinger want to show what they are made of and stand with their heads held high in the finish area of the Mönch, Eiger and Jungfrau. The US boy Bryce Bennett, who celebrated his first World Cup victory of his career this winter, not only wants to achieve great things because of his height of 201 cm. The experienced Frenchman John Clarey would like to prove that he is far from being on the scrap heap. We can and may expect a very good placement from Bennett’s teammates Ryan Cochran Siegle, but also by the Austrian Max Franz, the Italian Matteo Marsaglia, the German Romed Baumann, the Slovenian Bostjan Kline and the South Tyrolean Christopher Innerhofer expect. The reigning downhill world champion Vincent Kriechmayr also wants to be successful, although he wasn’t allowed to complete a training drive. Today’s team captain meeting will decide whether he can start tomorrow’s descent. All nations would have to vote for the exemption. Comes from the ranks of the Equipe Tricolore Mathieu Bailet. You can definitely trust him to jump into the top 10. We can also apply this assessment to the US boy Travis Ganong or the DSV men Andrew Sander and Joseph Ferstl or on the azure athlete Mattia Casse convert
The weather forecast for the “Lauberhorn Week” is promising, the slopes are in excellent condition: the OC of the International Lauberhorn Race Wengen is looking forward to a wonderful winter sports event. It is very important to the organizers to provide the best possible protection for athletes, fans and the public in the current pandemic situation. Tickets are only sold in advance so that there is enough time on site for the necessary certificate checks. The OC also urges fans to wear masks and keep their distance. Furthermore, the entire hotel staff in Wengen has been tested for Covid-19 in the last few days as planned.
The Lauberhorn descent and its history
The descent in Wengen is and remains a timeless classic. Every starter must have courage, willingness to take risks and physical condition. In addition, a perfect and almost flawless technique is an advantage when it comes to the Russisprung, the Traversenschuss, the Hundschopf, the Minsch Kante as an ingenious mix of jumps, curves, technical understanding and choice of line, but also the Alpweg with the Kernen-S, the water station, the Hanneggschuss, the Seilersboden, the Silberhornsprung or the Ziel-S. The key point is the Langentrejen, a thankless section of the slope. This is a flat section with long changes in direction; Here you can win the race or lose everything. The alpine ski resort of Wengen at the foot of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau has been an integral part of the ski circuit since the beginning of World Cup history. The Lauberhorn descent with a length of 4.2 km and a journey time of more than two and a half minutes promises thrills, adrenaline and much more. The route, which is equipped with daring jumps and long gliding passages, demands everything from the daredevil gentlemen.
