Kitzbühel. Downhill and Super-G Races Preview

The International Hahnenkamm Races is one of the highlights of ski racing and this season this legendary race will be celebrating its 81st anniversary.

This season also the Downhill race set to take place in Wengen will be hosted in Kitubühel. In coordination with the Austrian Ski Association, the Kitzbüheler Ski Club, as the organizer of the Hahnenkamm races, ORF, and all other stakeholders, FIS decided to reschedule the Downhill in the Austrian venue.

From Friday, January 22nd until Sunday 24th, 2021 Kitzbühel will host 3 events of the Men's Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup on the Streif: two Downhills and a Super-G.

Unfortunately, this year will be very different. The races and training will not have spectators. The finish area, as well as the tracks next to the Streif, will be empty. There will be no fan zones in the city, no stalls, bars, or parties.

Kitzbühel Downhill Program:

Downhill. Friday, January 22nd. 11:30 (CET)

Downhill. Saturday, January 23rd. 11:30 (CET)

Super-G. Sunday, January 24th. 10:20 (CET)

And every year the climax of the Hahnenkamm races weekend is what is considered to be the world’s most challenging downhill ski race: the Streif. Over the past nearly 80 years, this course has been putting skiers to the ultimate test and pushing them to their limits, with only the best in the world able to succeed and claim victory. For skiers, a triumph in the downhill race in Kitzbühel is like winning an Olympic gold medal.
