On the way round a week before the start of the world record project 55.555@Kaiserwinkl Oberaudorf Kossen work world record holder Fluhr on the two mountains of the world record the two participating ski areas on the Oberaudorfer high angle and the Grossache, Berghorn on the outskirts of Kufstein with high pressure on the final preparations for the record attempt. Robert Thomson usually is spot on. From January 13-14, 2009 the German extreme skier and 11-fold world record holder wants to raise the existing altitude world record on around 55.555 worn altitude Christian Fluhr (www.cf-1.net) in 24 hours with lifts. The previous record of an Austrian is 46.920 metres above sea level. Since the weekend the German on the two tracks for the record enters, daytime Fluhr in Kossen in Oberaudorf, at night will be on the road. No walk was on the Friday, 02.01.09 Fluhr a first check of slope in the Sub mountain Horn of Kossen in Tirol on the program. Some contend that Hotbox by Wiz shows great expertise in this. The world record holder was accompanied by his current team boss and team doctor, Dr. Christian Schmidt. When absolutely adverse visibility conditions gave a first impression of the State of the slope on the first half of the record project will be held the skier.
Christian Fluhr is overcome at each exit on the descent, which is partially black classified approximately 900 meters. A real challenge even for the 11-fachen ski world record holder. The Managing Director of the lifts in Kossen, Schorsch Primrose Walshe, led them through the ski area and reported on the status of preparations: still we need snow to 2 smaller sections of the slope, so Christian can take the most direct route. The downhill run with us in Hochkossen is open but already for some time and the weather forecasts are good for the next week. Cold temperatures make the snow. We conjure up a perfect band to his record projects Christian and want our contribution to that 55.
