Course design for Montafon unveiled
Just in time, Local Organisers have published the official course design for the Montafon SBX World Cup event. As previously reported, the whole set-up has been moved downhill from last year.
The 2013 course, designed by Anders Forsell (SWE) of Snowparkconsulting, now starts with a very fast section where in 2012 the first bank was placed.
This first high-speed part was reshaped for today's training, and is now working well according to last year's Montafon WC runner-up Markus Schairer (AUT).
The first turn follows some jumps and leads into a roller section from where the racers will go into berm #2.
A long straight section peppered with rollers and jumps brings the athletes into the last two banks before leading into the finish on a jump line.
