The Glocknerman


How many people should be part of my support-staff?

There is no fixed recommendation for this question. The team has to consist of at least two people with a valid driver’s license. The overall number depends on experience of the athlete and the team members, the car and the equipment and the planned passing times. The more staff the less pressure for every single one. The bigger the team, the more important is good communication. For most athletes at the Glocknerman a team consisting of four persons and one car is suited best. One to two staff members can stay at Winklern overnight. If you want good media (pictures, videos...) it is recommended to have a separate car for it.
