There have been 66 World Cup races in Gardena-Gröden since 1969 (including the 1970 WC). Fifty-five of these speed races took place on the Saslong, of which 47 were Downhill and 8 Super-G races.
Thirty-two athletes from nine different nations have won in the Downhill discipline, including several multiple winners such as Kristian Ghedina, Franz Klammer, Michael Walchhofer, Antoine Deneriaz, Peter Müller, Rob Boyd and Helmuth Höflehner. 2004 marked a first victory for Germany by Max Rauffer. In 2005, Marco Büchel from Lichtenstein won his first downhill race on a shortened course and in 2006 Steven Nymann from the USA celebrated the first American victory. Last year Michael Walchhofer won the second gold after his victory in 2007. Walchhofer had already won silver four times on the Saslong.
In Super G competition, Switzerland is ahead with three victories followed by Austria with two, Norway, the USA and Italy with one each.
