    "Wegen" in the title should read Wengen.

    "Perillat" is Guy Perillat.

    "Schranz" is Karl Schranz.

    The event they're competing in is called the Lauberhornrennen.

    That's helpful - thanks. And it's good to get that title fixed for future viewers. Hope no one missed the clip as a result!
