Red Bull Kronplatz Cross
A pitch-dark night, just the snow-white slope and the obstacles are lit up. The daredevil ski aces are ready for competing against their opponents and rushing down on the ski cross course of Mt. Kronplatz. This is the world’s toughest team ski cross race!
After the successfull première in 2012 the action-packed Red Bull Skicross comes again to South Tyrol. Venue is again the renowned Mt. Kronplatz, which is regarded as most popular skiing areas in the region and which also gives its name to the event.
The Red Bull Kronplatz Cross isn’t an ordinary ski cross race. Of course, ski cross is always an exciting kind of sport. However, Red Bull wanted to jazz up the traditional variant of this discipline and therefore there is scheduled a spectacular team competition, which is hold at night and planed as relay race.
Ski cross as team competition
In detail this means that the participants will line up in teams of three. The first racers start, pass a steep slope and a number of obstacles. After the finishing line they have to push a button, which opens the gate for the following member of the team. The team, whose last athlete crosses the finishing first, wins.
Besides those teams, who come through the qualification round, also wild card teams – invited pros – participate in the finals. The winners will receive not only prizes offered by the sponsors, but also considerable prize money.
Participation in the Red Bull Kronplatz Cross
The participation in the Red Bull Kronplatz Cross is open to everyone. However experience on skis and good skills absolutely necessary, as well as a lot of courage. Because the ski cross course above the valley station of Olang/Gassl is quite difficult and the adversaries will surely show no mercy.
The program provides that on Friday, 26 February, there will take place some training heats and the qualification. Then, for Saturday evening there is scheduled the spectacular finale with the best and bravest cross skiers.
