It's safe to say the World Cup season is in full swing when you find yourself at a table full of journalists drinking beer and gluhwein while the Altenmarkt Burgermeister shakes the room with his French horn. The whole mess, later hurdled down the Hochnossleralm rodelbahn claiming we were ready for the sports submission into the Olympic program.
Midway down and thinking i was a sure shot for the extremely unofficial rodel podium, a blitz of snow zipped past on my left shouting "Vorsicht!" I careened off the trail and into a snowbank.
It was the burgermeister.
