Fear & motivation on the Streif

If you need to motivate your team then why not take them to an event that defies logic. Chances are they will get to the side of the Kitzbuhel Hahnenkamm Streif race course on skis.

That though is where all similarities between the racers and the spectators ends. With a gradient of 85% on the Mausefalle, an average speed in excess of 106 km/h and an average vertical descent of 7.7m/s the guys in tight suits exhibit a fearless commitment that is almost unique in the sporting world. And with the race routinely interrupted as bodies are winched of the course by helicopter the focus and strength of the following racers is extraordinary. As a spectator you cannot help get caught up in the drama, skill and sheer bravery of these racers as they tackle the ultimate ski race course in the world. And it does rub off, as you head from the course to celebrate with the masses of spectators in the resort centre you really feel as if anything is possible. The day after witnessing the race, with minds sill buoyed by what they experienced is the time for corporate teams to meet, reaffirm their goals, set new challenges and generally believe anything is attainable. To begin to appreciate the Kitzbuhel Hahnenkamm Streif racers are accelerating from 0 to 80 km/h in 3 seconds and then launching themselves of the Mausefalle, an 85% wall of ice.
