5 toughest downhill races that make pros nervous

Reading time 2 min.

Which FIS downhill races horrify the aces and why?

The FIS World Cup downhill inclines in race condition are not feasible for ordinary skiers – not in any event, for cutting edge skiers. Commonly, their surface sparkles in unadulterated ice rather than a day off, losing your edge implies you’re up for a long, startlingly quick slide into the wellbeing nets.

On the off chance that you just watched the 2014 release of the Saslong downhill in Val Gardena, Italy, you’ve seen one of the more merciless parts in that course’s set of experiences. The absence of snow made outrageous conditions, with a quicker and bumpier ride and more air off the hops than scarcely ever previously.

What’s more, there’s additionally coming up this declining season. Albeit the rough Stelvio downhill in Bormio, Italy, is off the schedule unexpectedly since 1993, the world’s quickest skiers – male and female – make some extreme memories ahead.

Here’s our insider manual for the five most testing downhill race courses:

1. Wengen, Switzerland

At 4,415 meters, the Lauberhorn downhill is the longest on the FIS World Cup visit. In addition to the fact that it takes more than two minutes to ski, it is additionally the track with the quickest recorded rates, including the informal record of 161.9 km/h, set by Frenchman Johan Clarey in January 2013. No big surprise that the racers are heaving for air when they cross the end goal.

2. Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy

With regards to astonishing perspectives, the women’s Wengen is Cortina d’Ampezzo. Situated inside the Dolomites Unesco social legacy site, Cortina’s decline begins before the three-crested Tofane and quickly tumbles off the madly steep Tofanaschuss, close to sharp-edged bluffs. The Olimpia track is the place where incredible Toni Sailer won gold in the men’s declining at the 1956 Games.

3. Kitzbühel, Austria

No rundown of the most testing downhills would be finished without the renowned and dreaded Hahnenkamm Races on Kitzbühel’s Streif. The key realities are popular: 85 percent slope, 60-meter bounces, 860-meter height drop, wandering aimlessly; portions of the racecourse are not prepared for typical skiing. For additional subtleties, make a point to watch the new film ‘Streif – One Hell of a Ride’

4. St Moritz, Switzerland

The beginning of the men’s Corviglia downhill in St Moritz is much more extreme than the notorious Streif. It has an angle of 45 degrees or 100% and has fittingly been named “Free Fall”. The racers quicken from 0 to 130 km/h in only seven seconds! By difference to the women who routinely race in St Moritz, the men’s seminar on Corviglia will be getting back to the white bazaar and will have the men’s Worlds downhill in 2017.

5. Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany

Today, there are two Kandahar courses in the twin town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, #1 for women and #2 for men. While the women’s course brags a slope of 85 percent, the men’s course arrives at an incredible 92 percent. First dashed in 2009 at full length, it involves the steepest stretch among all the yearly World Cup slants.
