7.45 a.m.: “Breakfast”

Beat Feuz is having breakfast in the Hotel Schweizerhof. As befits a farmer’s son from Emmental, he fortifies himself with cheese, ham, bread and some honey. However, his appetite is not particularly pronounced. While other athletes go to the buffet a second time, Feuz leaves it at one portion. Not far from the Schweizerhof, Beat’s longtime downhill rival Aksel Lund Svindal treats himself to a hearty brunch this morning. “Beat will find out next year that breakfast on the day of the Hahnenkamm descent tastes much better if you don’t have to ski down this dangerous slope yourself…”

8:34 a.m.: Dressen gondola

The triple Streif winner arrives with his teammate Justin Murisier at the valley station of the Hahnenkamm cable car. All gondolas are labeled with the names of the Hahnenkamm winners. That’s why a Feuz cabin hovers over Kitzbühel. But the ball lightning climbs into the gondola with the inscription Thomas Dressen. This is remarkable because the German screwed up Feuz’s first Streif triumph at the last moment in 2018. At that time, the Schangnauer was in the lead after the first starting group. But then Dressen with starting number 19 benefited from the constantly improving visibility and was ultimately two tenths faster.
