Or have a read of the FAQ’s on the link below, we also have the last 3 years results.
The DHO Inferno Team
Last year the DHO fielded its largest ever team for the Downhill. 45 racers took part and bagged an amazing 5 Silvers and 30 bronzes between them. We are hoping to better this fantastic effort next year. Its a great event requiring fitness and nerve as well as endurance and of course the ability to ski uphill as well as down!
All those who won medals are guaranteed an entry for the next 3 years, if they want one. Anyone else who wishes to take part in the DHO team needs to apply for a bib and the team enters a ballot for the remaining places.
We will organise some team training /course inspection as in previous years and an after party dinner in Murren.
Alison Hinde and Daniel Grimes have handed over the team captaincy to me and I have Lara Hirst Malin and William Wells as Vice Captains. Assisted By Nicola Grimes we plan to run the on line shop this year which makes payment easy and transparent. When the DHO website is up and running there will be a link to the online form to complete. There will also be a disclaimer/ Inferno rules to sign (through the proactively app).
We will start collecting names for the DHO team NOW. They are registered with Datasport and the Inferno Office in Mid September. We learn who has been awarded an entry in Mid October and ask these people to pay using a credit card through the online shop. We re-apply for anyone who does not have a bib at this stage. There is a waiting list and it is very likely you will get a bib as more become available later on.

I would like to have all this years competitors to have notified me using this form no later than 31/08/2019.
This is because all the entries have to be registered with the Inferno office by me before 15/09/2019 when entries close.
