Stenmark shared the podium with two Italian racers, Piero Gros in second and winner Fausto Radici. Also present was Stenmark’s trademark knit hat by Sätila of Sweden.

In terms of treasure hunting, I was beside myself to find – in a pile of otherwise unremarkable vintage photos – these images of the ultimate ski legend!

The Men’s World Cup tour speeds into the 2015 edition of the Kandahar Rennen at Garmisch today with the Downhill; Giant Slalom action follows on Sunday.
