The race has now been canceled after the first 30 athletes.

With this, the Swiss Beat Feuz triumphs for the first time in Kitzbühel, the German team achieved a strong team result.

The race on the Streif was overshadowed by two serious falls - first the American Ryan Cochran-Siegle rushed into the safety nets, a little later the Swiss Urs Kryenbühl was hit hard at the finish line.

Both had to be taken away by helicopter.

The second descent will follow tomorrow at 11.30 a.m. - hopefully with better weather and no falls.

We'll be back in the live ticker tomorrow.

2:22 p.m.:

There are always interruptions due to the strong wind.

The race takes a long time here.

2:08 p.m.:

Great drive from Dominik Schwaiger!

He displaces his compatriot Ferstl from twelfth place.

The overall German result is getting better and better.

2:04 p.m.:

Now it goes on.

The Italian Matteo Marsaglia is in 19th place.

1.45 p.m.:

The race is interrupted due to strong winds.

In any case, the piste didn't offer much for the last runners.

1:38 p.m.:

Beat Feuz will win today's descent on the Hahnenkamm.

It is a good result for the German starters, Andreas Sander will probably keep his fifth place, just like Romed Baumann his eighth.

Josef Ferstl also had a good race, he is twelfth.

Three Germans are still in the race: Dominik Schwaiger, Manuel Schmid and Simon Jocher.

1:18 p.m.:

Daniel Danklmaier can't get to Ferstl's time.

21 - Josef Ferstl: The next German is in the running!

At the top he drives cleverly, but at the bottom he has a little too little speed.

The jump to the finish goes very far, and at the finish he is also a little impressed.

“This is Kitzbühel,” he says.

He is also twelfth.

20 - Otmar Striedinger:

Courageous drive of the Austrian.

But at the bottom he has to struggle with the changed snow conditions and ends up on twelve.

19 - Maxence Muzaton:

Uff!

What a shocking moment - the Frenchman already loses his balance a bit in the traverse, he is unsure about the target jump, but can catch himself.

Almost the next fall.

He is in twelfth place.

18 - Bryce Bennett:

Nobody wants to be in his skin.

He's the first to chase down the Streif after Kryenbühl.

First and foremost, we wish him good luck.

The American is now driving with the handbrake on - completely understandable.

He's not taking any chances and is three seconds back.

Streif 2021: Urs Kryenbühl falls badly - Expert: "I hate these pictures"

17 - Urs Kryenbühl:

Bad fall in the finish area!

It looked really terrible, the Swiss lost control after the last jump and rolled over.

At least Kryenbühl is conscious.

The doctors are there, the 26-year-old is of course in terrible pain.

"I hate these pictures," says ZDF expert Marco Büchel, shocked.

Kryenbühl was capable of 146 km / h, you can only guess what forces are at work in a fall.

The helicopter is here.

Kryenbühl will continue to be treated on the slopes and will then be transported to Innsbruck as quickly as possible.

According to

Eurosport

, the Swiss suffered a traumatic brain injury.

16 - Martin Cater:

More than four seconds behind the Slovenian - that was nothing.

15 - Carlo Janka:

Really strong performance from the Swiss in the upper section.

Sixth place at the end - Romed Baumann slips to eighth place.

14 - Travis Ganong:

It's the next American's turn.

Travis Ganong starts the race again after the fall of his compatriot Ryan Cochran-Siegle.

Ganong is in tenth place.

12.25 p.m.: Now it goes on!

12.13 p.m.:

The first two German starters were already at the ZDF microphone.

Both Romed Baumann and Andreas Sander were happy with their runs.

The fact that they won't make it to the podium is of course a small disappointment for both of them - but tomorrow there is another chance.

The DSV duo doesn't have to hide under any circumstances!

12.10 p.m.:

The race is currently interrupted.

Cochran-Siegle lost control after jumping and slid into the safety net.

The American is now back on his feet, he doesn't seem to be injured any more.

Nevertheless, of course, the medical staff is on the spot immediately and the helicopter will fly him to Innsbruck.

There is then an MRI to examine Cochran-Siegle's knee.

The joint is of course always particularly vulnerable in the ski aces.

Streif NOW in the live ticker: Top favorite Ryan Cochran-Siegle falls

13 - Ryan Cochran-Siegle:

Now watch out again!

It's Ryan Cochran-Siegle's turn, the US boy could create tension again.

But it quickly becomes clear - it will not be enough.

And then the fall!

The American loses control after the traverse and ends up in the network.

But it looks like everything is fine.

Luckily!

12 - Christof Innerhofer:

That was nothing from the Italian - more than three seconds behind the leaders and in the meantime last place.

11 - Johan Clarey: The

Frenchman got off to a promising start, but his 145 km / h wasn't enough for him in the end.

After his fall in training yesterday, he is now in fourth place - the Germans are passed through.

10 - Matthieu Bailet:

The French stepped on the gas and finished fifth - a shame for Romed Baumann, the German slipped down to sixth.

9 - Dominik Paris:

Paris is next, the Italian is also one of the favorites.

Above is a very strong race for the three-time Kitzbühel winner.

And that is third place - 1: 54.33 min!

A shame for Andreas Sander, who flies off the podium with it.

8 - Nils Allegre:

The French ranks behind the two Germans - now it's sixth for Allegre.

Streif NOW in the live ticker: Baumann and Sander on the move fast - Feuz with a mega ride

7 - Matthias Mayer:

Last year's winner now.

Mayer, the Austrian, with high speed in the lower third!

But it's not enough, very close!

In the end, there are 16 hundredths behind Feuz.

6 - Andreas Sander:

Let's go, Andi!

The German hope is at the start and that is a good race by Sander - but it is not enough for Feuz, who delivered a fabulous run here.

It is now the second place for Sander.

5 - Beat Feuz:

Romed Baumann's lead could now wobble, top favorite Beat Feuz is next.

The Swiss quickly creates a lead.

In the end it is 1: 53.77 min - amazing time!

And it could very well be that it was already the winning run, what a ride by the 33-year-old!

4 - Max Franz:

With Max Franz, the next Austrian is on the track and that looks very good.

But then he misses a goal in the lower third and is out!

He could have cracked Romed Baumann here, luck for the German.

3 - Vincent Kriechmayr:

Now comes Vincent Kriechmayr, one of the big favorites.

The Austrian remains flawless at the top, but still can't get past Baumann!

That is the first surprise in Kitzbühel!

Streif NOW in the live ticker: Baumann messes up in the U-Hackerl - podium dream already gone?

2 - Romed Baumann: Keep your fingers crossed for Romed Baumann!

The German catches the mousetrap well, but fails like Jansrud in the so-called U-Hackerl - bitter!

Is there still something left?

Baumann brings the barrel down neatly and ultimately has exactly one second ahead of Jansrud.

Start number 1 - Kjetil Jansrud

: Best conditions in Kitzbühel, can

Kjetil Jansrud use

them right away?

The Norwegian starts furiously, but then the mistake comes!

Jansrud loses a lot of time in the upper section and can already bury his chances of victory.

Pack ma's!

The first Streif descent begins.

11.25 a.m.:
