Schladming - The Night Race in Schladming electrifies the spectators, even if only 1000 are admitted this year.

The slalom is also the important dress rehearsal for the Olympics in Beijing.

Until a few years ago, DSV star Felix Neureuther* and the exceptional Austrian driver Marcus Hirscher fought legendary duels in the slalom.

Both have now ended their careers.

Neureuther accompanies the ski races as an ARD expert.

Last weekend he experienced a skiing sensation that he had not thought possible and even had tears in his eyes.

Brit Dave Ryding made skiing history in the Kitzbühel slalom.

The 35-year-old from the northern English town of Chorley took advantage of the fact that the favorites were dying and was the first Briton in 45 years to win the World Cup - and that on the "holy mountain" of the ski nation Austria.

"It was a long and crazy journey," said Ryding, who was second in Kitz five years ago behind the red-white-red national hero Hirscher and has clinched two more podium finishes.

With his hussar ride, he not only moved his former competitor Neureuther to tears.

"I have a bit of Pippi in my eyes," said the ARD expert, "that's huge and emotional.

At the prestigious night slalom in Schladming, Ryding could write the next episode in his skiing fairy tale.

From a German point of view, the hopes are on Munich-born Linus Straßer, who finished 14th in Kitzbühel.

The 29-year-old from TSV 1860 Munich has already attracted attention this season with third place in Adelboden.
