Les Houches: Kandahar - 19 & 20 February 2016

After 4 years absence, the world championships downhill is back in Les Houches, in the Chamonix valley during the weekend of the 19th & 20th February. Two runs will determine who wins with the men's slalom and downhill, counting towards the overall world championships.

For several weeks there was doubt about the weekend that this legendary event should take place with the school holidays a cause for concern; this has quickly been dissipated.

This year, the opening of this famous event will be done by the Austrian downhill racer Hannes Trinkl, 6 time world champion, and who has been 3rd at the 1998 Olympic games.
