Green Lights on

The luge World Cup on natural track starts into the new season the upcoming weekend in Kühtai. "Full attack at the ice rally" is the motto of the world's best natural track tobogganists in Kühtai. The World Cup kick-off will take place this year on the so-called "Sonnenhang“ near the "Jagdschloss“.

Sports-Director Gerald Kammerlander: "On the 395-meter-long track the athletes find all types of technical sections: Steep and flat passages, narrow and wide turns. It's a really crisp track this year, with top speeds up to 80 kilometers per hour“.

Last year Greta Pinggera (ITA) won the women's competition in Kühtai, Thomas Kammerlander (AUT) the men‘s and Patrick Pigneter / Florian Clara (ITA) the doubles.
This year for the first time there will be a sports competition in the supporting program.

Celebrities compete in a combined luge and shooting evaluation. Among them are cycling double World Champion Laura Stigger, the former cycling-ace Thomas Rohregger, the former luge champion Andreas Linger, ice hockey crack Patrick Mössmer, ÖRV-President Markus Prock and many others. This showdown will take place on Sunday at 12.30 pm after the men’s final.
