It’s 1:30 pm. After more than four hours on the road, I have finally arrived in Arosa. The second race of the Cross Alps Tour of the Audi FIS Ski Cross World Cup will take place here in the evening. This makes four consecutive competitions, with one male and one female overall winner at the end.
The ride over ice and snow was strenuous. I am glad that I could travel with a quattro. I’m looking forward to spending the day with Claudia Beitsch. She is a passionate ski tour guide and documents all her adventures in the mountains on Instagram and on her blog. Today, she has the opportunity to experience ski cross up close. “Up until today, I’ve only known ski cross from TV. I’m stoked to watch the race today and to be allowed to conquer the track myself!”, the Brandenburg native rejoices.
