It’s the Streif: fast, dangerous and spectacular

It is playing with fire and every runner must be aware of the danger. The most dangerous ski slope in the world awaits the athletes – the Streif in Kitzbühel. Every year drivers fall, every year paramedics have to transport an athlete to the hospital. And yet the Hahnenkamm race is a cult event. Both for the spectators and for the pilots.

Many athletes would trade a victory in the Hahnenkamm descent on the Streif in Kitzbühel without hesitation for an Olympic victory or a world championship title.

This is the Streif: Immediately after the steep start, a lot of courage is required of the pilots. If you don’t have confidence in yourself, you will have your first difficulties jumping more than 50 meters. With an 85% gradient, the Mausefalle is the steepest point of the Streif. Compression ensues, during which the conductors are exposed to extreme centrifugal forces.

Carousel curve: The combination of the S-curve is the next key point and forms the entrance to the steep incline. The long right turn at the end determines the speed, as little slip as possible is important. If a driver retires before the curve, this can certainly turn out to be an advantage.

Steilhang and Gschöss: The technical requirements are very high on the steep slope. Perfect edges and optimal timing are necessary to achieve the right goals. Normally the place is completely frozen. It is important to take the maximum speed because the Gschöss is followed by a glider passage 650 meters long. Good material, solid condition and good gliding ability are decisive here.

Alte Schneise, Seidlalm: The old Schneise is a turbulent and risky diagonal ride, which is followed by a rapid change of terrain and light. Patience and perfect body tension are required on the Seidlalm. Anyone who stands up here loses precious hundredths.

Larch shot: Another sliding part is the larch shot, speeds of up to 102 km/h can be reached. Mentally, the pilots are already preparing for the next difficult section. Legs are burning, some are slowly reaching their physical limits.

Hausberg Kante: During training, there was a wall of fog above the Hausberg Kante, which made jumping even more difficult. A difficult left turn ensues on a wave, the goal is to ride as high as possible in the crossing.

Traverse: Lots of bumps make traversing a bumpy ordeal, so don’t take off if possible. Drivers are often driven here and lose the high line. This would be important to resume the aimed shot at full speed.

Target shot and target jump: In the target shot, the athletes reach the highest speed of the race, up to 140 km/h they cover the last meters. Despite the fatigue, the pilots must pull themselves together, otherwise the finish jump degenerates at the site of the accident. Finally, the snow runners arrive on the “Rasmusleitn” in the immediate vicinity of the city in the finish area. Who mastered the key passages best?
