Great media interest on the Hannes Trinkl World Cup route
After all, with passages of 60% slope, it is not only one of the steepest and most demanding Super-G World Cup routes on the calendar, it is, above all, that it presents itself in optimally prepared winter clothing two weeks before the first race, like race director Eveline Rohregger told the journalists could report.
Also ÖSV general secretary Dr. Klaus Leistner, Upper Austria's regional councilor Markus Achleitner and OK boss Herwig Grabner, used the opportunity to get an idea of the route themselves. Many other members of the organizing committee, who have been planning and preparing the winter sport highlight in the Pyhrn-Priel holiday region for several months, also listened to the expert comments of the only race director in the men's Alpine Ski World Cup. According to Rohregger, what is still missing to complete the race luck on the World Cup track is only the fine preparation, and lots of ski guests who drive down the slope on the slopes. The more compressed and compact the snow becomes on the track, the less the 300-man piste crew will have to shovel during the race weekend. The snow control by the International Ski Association FIS in the coming days should only be a formal act, which will give the races the green light from February 28th.
