The flexen race is coming back to Lech again!

The Audi FIS ski world cup returned to Lech last year. It had to take place without an audience due to covid regulations. We are very happy that the Audi FIS ski world cup is returning again, this year it’s taking place with an audience!

It isn’t the first time ever that the FIS world cup in alpine skiing is taking place in Lech, there have been numerous races between the late 80’s and mid 90’s. After a pause of 26 years, it was time for the world cup to return to Lech last year in 2020. It is an honour and pleasure to host the FIS world cup again this year.
