To the Ski World Cup and the WC in ten VW Caravelle buses
Arrival of the U.S. Alpine Ski Team in Zell am See-Kaprun / Delivery of team transporters
(lifePR) (Zell am See, )On Tuesday Lindsey Vonn and the Women's U.S. Alpine Ski Team arrived in Zell am See-Kaprun! Until March 2011 the professional athletes are preparing for the upcoming European competitions of the Ski World Cup as well as for the World Championships held in Garmisch-Patenkirchen. The team around head coach Alexander Hödlmoser has already participated in the first overseas races of the season. The ladies are now getting ready for the next sporting challenges of another seven races in Europe as well as for the World Championships in February.
The journey to the venues of the competitions promises to be a comfortable one thanks to the ten VW Caravelle transporters. The German car manufacturer Volkswagen has sponsored the vans to support the U.S. ladies on their way to the world cup title. On Tuesday afternoon, keys changed hands at Porsche Inter Auto GmbH car dealer in Zell am See. Managing director Dr. Ernst Rosenberger and representatives of the cable car service providers Gletscherbahnen Kaprun and Schmittenhöhebahn AG appreciated the opportunity to wish the team all the best for their sporting ambitions in the current season.
Thanks to its extremely flexible interior, the Caravelle offers space for up to nine passengers. Space that is desperately needed! After all, the U.S. team consists of about 45 members and travels with roughly three tons of material. Until next spring the U.S. delegation is lodging at Mountain Motel in Kaprun. The team will be guests in the region in the next four years again, too. Only recently, the cooperation has been extended until the Winter Olympics 2012 in Sochi.
