Tornado Damage to The Streif

In early August a tornado scored a direct hit on the notorious Hahnenkamm. The Strief racecourse looks totally different this year, as the storm ripped out entire hillsides of old growth trees on both sides of the track.

One local told me, in respectful tones, "the Hahnenkamm is a dangerous mountain, not only in the sporting context".
