I was told of a movie on VIMEO that was about the history of the downhill in Kitzbuhel, the name was something like Swift, anyway I can't find it. Anyone know what I might be talking about?
Will anyone ever match Franz Klammer's record on the Streif.
Three consecutive wins and four wins overall?
There was one year when he really went for it and courted disaster all the way down and made it to the bottom somehow.
what am I not getting?
Cuche won 4 full Streif Downhills (as did Klammer) plus 1 shortened Streif Downhill. could not be more clear.
so Cuche and Klammer are tied for full Streif Downhill wins and Cuche has an additional shortened Streif DH win.
in all cases, racers ran the same course and Cuche/Klammer were victorious.
I thought it was really good... though the Klammer run at the '76 Olympics got the short shrift, given that they call it "the greatest run the sport has ever seen". Maybe they didn't have enough footage or folks to interview to flesh it out. As someone too young to have seen it, I wish they had more footage.
