Here's a list of the men who've won both the classic Hahnenkamm (Kitzbuhel) and Lauberhorn (Wengen) downhill races in the same season.
Only three skiers have achieved this feat more than once, Austrian trio Toni Sailer (twice), Karl Schranz (twice) and Franz Klammer (three times).
Sailer did it two years in a row in 1956 and 1957, whilst Klammer, unbelievably, won both races three years in a row between 1975 and 1977, a feat that we think will be a long time, if ever, before it's repeated.
And let's not forget poor old Didier Cuche - a record five times winner on the Hahnenkamm at Kitzbuhel, but, almost as incredibly, unable to claim victory even once on the home snow of the Lauberhorn.

Austrian skiers Franz Klammer, Toni Sailer and Karl Shranz are the only skiers to have done the Wengne-Kitzbuhel 'double' more than once, and with the now-retired Didier Defago being the last skier to have achieved the feat, it could stay that way for a while longer...
