Fans are the backbone of the Finish area: Program

Traditional Brunch in the Center of St. Christina
For the first time we’ll be offering a traditional brunch of sausages and beer on Friday and Saturday. Instead of hosting the event at the public tent in the arrival area, this year the brunch will be offered at Bar Marina in the center of St. Christina.

Furthermore, fans will also be able to choose instead a delicious slice of apple strudel at Café Andy which is situated exactly across the street.

New Fan Club area
On Saturday morning, the area in front of Garni Marina will be dedicated to get the fans excited for the race. Fans can enjoy the brunch of sausages and beer while enjoying the sound of a traditional music. Furthermore, restaurant La Tambra will also offer the opportunity to fans to use their brunch vouchers. And for those with a sweet tooth, they can return to Café Andy for a slice of Strudel.

Highlight Fan Parade
The highlight of the fan festival consists of the traditional and very popular Fan Parade. It will take place on Saturday ahead of the Downhill race. Kick-off is at 10:45 am from Garni Marina. Equipped with the many banners, drums, bells and other fan club paraphernalia, the fan clubs will parade through St. Christina and make their way to the fan stands at the finish. A jury has been appointed to select the most impressive and expressive fan club with a prize ceremony taking place right after completion of the race.

The prize for the winning fan club consists of a summer outing in Gardena/Gröden including the following: Complimentary lift tickets for all fan club members, Surprise at a mountain hut in Gardena/Gröden
Dedicated fan stands and a special area will be reserved at the finish for all fan clubs.
