Alpine Team Event - when the joint efforts count

Competitions where the athletes race one on one, man against man, woman against woman, team against team. In alpine skiing, it’s usually a race against the clock with intermediates, time differences and hundreds of seconds. But in the Alpine Team Event, it's a race against your opponent in the parallel track. Nothing more, nothing less.. It's just a matter of being the first to cross the finish line. It’s racing in its purest form.
