In the past of downhill sports, Willingen was a legendary venue for the Downhill World Cup. The course has remained relatively unchanged since the 2000s. However, 2 years ago it was extended and improved especially for the iXS DHC. Last year, this ensured a truly breathtaking result for the German Championships.

Surprising twist ♻️

The elite men had a close race on the short but demanding course. Max Hartenstern seemed to be on course for the title, but then U19 rider Henri Kiefer surprised everyone with the best time of the day. This led to an unexpected turn of events, which Max Hartenstern had already experienced twice before at German championships.
