Kryenbühl is the unlucky man of the season

Urs Kryenbühl has been traded as a potential successor to Beat Feuz for a few years. There are actually some parallels between him and the Olympic champion. Like the downhill king from the Emmental, the Schwyzer is 1.72 meters tall. Like Feuz, Kryenbühl was considered a sloppy genius from a very young age. But after he understood the seriousness of racing, the first big successes came quickly. Especially on the technically extremely difficult descent in Bormio (It).

In 2019 he thundered to second place in the classic on the “Pista Stelvio”, in 2020 he finished third. And a few days after team leader Beat Feuz announced his resignation, Kryenbühl indicated again last Wednesday in Bormio that he has what it takes to be the new “Kugelblitz”. Although he had fractured his pelvis eleven months earlier in the Europacup in Saalbach, the 28-year-old stunned with sixth place in the downhill.
