One Of The Many Advantages Of Fiber To The Start

Brian At The Start

In the six years we’ve been timekeepers for The Hahnenkamm, the ROC has never even attempted a Tuesday training run because the course is never ready.  Usually they skip Tuesday, then go either Wed or Thurs (or both). We usually have partial TV on Wed and then a full broadcast on Thursday. The Hahnenkamm is the only World Cup DH where training goes out on TV.

After two meters of snow in the last week, the course is WAY ready. Today (Monday) is gorgeous, but the weather is supposed to go to shit (warm, rain & snow) starting tomorrow, so we’re going to try to get our training run in early and then perhaps bag the other two (Wed and Thurs).

No TV for training tomorrow, so we just slapped a webcam up on the start over a vLAN on our fiber so JimmyBob and Ted don’t have to fly blind during the training run.
