One of the most legendary downhill ski courses in the world, the Streif is formidable even for top pros. So why not ride a bike down it? To be fair, this isn’t the first time the Streif has been conquered by bike. But it is the first time Fabio Wibmer has put his spin on it – literally.
From Eyesprint Media:
Austrian freestyle mountain bike phenomenon Fabio Wibmer makes the fearsome Streif ski piste his playground for a jaw-dropping world-first descent unlike anything ever seen before.
In a video impossible to only watch once, Fabio Wibmer played out his childhood dream for his latest spectacular project ‘Fabio Wibmer – The Streif’ as put his own creative twist on the biggest downhill ski race in the world – the Hahnenkamm in Kitzbühel, Austria.
Filmed just an hour from where he grew up, Wibmer combined mountain biking with skiing to conquer the Streif’s most iconic spots during a unique freestyle descent that saw him reach a maximum speed of 107km/h and land multiple jumps including ones of 14m in height and 36m in length.
The edit switches between mind-blowing action and customary light-hearted fun as Wibmer takes on the formidable challenge in the only way he knows how.
