The Italian Dominik Paris is the king of Kitzbühel Hahnenkamm downhill 2019, after a splendid race on Streif slope. The famous downhill was moved from Saturday to Friday due to the weather. The Hahnenkamm mountain that surrounded Kitzbühel, hosts FIS Alpine Ski World Cup on middle January each year. The most important race is the downhill that is held on Streif slope. Streif is the a dangerous alpine ski track located on Hahnenkamm mountain. The Kitzbühel Hahnenkamm downhill is the most difficult downhill in the FIS Ski World Cup.
The Italian Paris had an excellent race and finished the first, claiming his third victory on Hahnenkamm Streif slope.
The podium was completed by the Swiss Beat Feuz, who finished the second and by Austrian Ottmar Striedinger who ended the third. Unfortunately, Austrian skier Vincent Kriechmayr, who won the downhill in Wengen, Switzerland, one week earlier, could not finish the race. Another favorite, the Austrian Max Franz, could not also end the downhill.
Kitzbühel Hahnenkamm downhill has not had such much public this year. Many fans could not enjoy the race not only because of the bad weather, but also because of changing the race`s day.
On Saturday, 26 January 2019, the Hahnenkamm races continue with the slalom on Ganslern slope.
