This classic view of Innsbruck's old Bergisel arena gives a good indication of the scale of the event in its second year. The venue's cauldron-like dimensions created a unique atmosphere, and the riders usually rose the occasion. Fittingly, Ingemar Backman (who is now an Air & Style judge) cemented his status as one of the most progressive riders of the mid- to late '90s here in 1994.
