Chasing the Line

Andreas Schmied
For the downhill challenge at the Olympics 1976 there was only one favourite: Franz Klammer! The charismatic Austrian downhill racer carries the hopes of a whole nation on his shoulders. Faced with this pressure, his sponsor wanting to change his equipment at the last minute, the weather conditions worsening by the day, the mountain turning out to be defiant and rival racers on his heels, Franz ends up facing the ultimate challenge.
