// UCI Dowhill Worldcup // Leogang // 2019 //
In June 2019, I got the chance to cover the 2019 Downhill Worldcup in Leogang for Saalfelden-Leogang. So I ended up running up and down the hill countless times a day, hunting the moment, carrying a heavy bag full of camera gear. After three tough days I was totally done - but happy as a man can be. The only one with an even bigger smile must have been Frenchman Loic Bruni, who took the win by less than a second ahead of Greg Minnaar.

" you know ... once this Tito guy came, and built a chairlift ... but it only worked one season!"
It all started with an incoming call. We were just about to fit the 4th pair of skis into my car, to go for a morning shred in one of the local ski resorts. The new year had welcomed us with a huge amount of powder, and the snowfall was not showing signs of stopping. What i was expecting was a call from any other local skier, asking for a shuttle to the ski resort. But unlike my believe it was Jules from the Snowmads Crew, asking whether I wanted to join him skiing. But the mountains he started talking about were a little further away then the Austrian Alps. And without hesitation, i agreed to join the crew on a ski-exploring-trip to the Balkans.
"... wooaaahhh, I could never have imagined a better start of the season!"
The first shafts of sunlight softly touch the snow, as we exit the top station of the gondola. It's probabely been the longest 20 minutes gondola ride of our lifes ... as all of us couldn't await getting back onto the skies again, after a long summer. And though we weren't expecting it, we were welcomed with some perfect, untracked powder lines.
