Kitzbuhel 2017

The 77th running of the infamous Hannenkahn in Austria sees LMC if Germany deploy 7 hi-speed camera systems. Three Polecams with 2 equipped with Antelope Pico. Peter Frick of Sweden operates at the Mousehahller and Steffan Hewitt at the Hausberkante where the downhill racers come past over 100kmh. Last year saw the race stopped after just 30 runners out of 79 after 5 serious crashes just below Steffan. The weather is a balmy -20 at nights but glorious sun and 50cm of fresh powder in the day time. Today starts with practice but all live on ORF, Austrian TV.
