The Funcross Obergurgl gives the finishing touches to the Diamond of the Alps. Dynamic waves, fast banked turns and action-packed jumps offer skiers and snowboarders the flow feeling, that has only been experienced by professional racers before. The Funcross Race even tops that! This race differs to all others. How? There is no registration in advance needed for instance. Just show up at the start of the Funcross, register and take part at the race. Once you’re registered, you can carve through the Funcross as often as you like. From 10 AM to 2 PM, every participant can take as many runs as he or she likes. Our hint for your success: Get to know the course and don’t risk too much at the first couple of runs.
It’s the third time that the Funcross Race going down in Gurgl. Last year, 78 passionate racers took part at this special race, but the fastest run of the day was put down by the same person as in the year before. David Scheiber was the fastest on skis and has won every Funcross Race in Obergurgl so far. And he is not the only serial winner in Gurgl. Lana Behla has won the women’s snowboard category at both Funcross Races. Can David and Lana defend their titles as Mr. & Ms. Funcross? It won’t be a walkover, that’s for sure.
With snowboard and ski, there are two disciplines at the Funcross Race that are again separated into women, men, female and male youngsters categories. In total, there are 600€ of prize money to win and in addition to that, every racer gets goodies from Funcross and Gurgl. The prize giving will be at the restaurant “Zirbenalm”.
All those who can’t make it to Gurgl on February 27 do not need to worry. They get a second chance! On March 19, a second race will go down at the Funcross Obergurgl. Better safe than sorry, right?
