Hell's Belles to rock women's World Cup super-G bib presentation at Beaver Creek

Beaver Creek and the community love fast women and there will be plenty of speed to go around this week as Lindsey Vonn, Julia Mancuso and the World Cup ladies' tour makes an historic stop in Beaver Creek for the transplanted Val d'Isere Super-G on Wednesday at 10:30 a.m.

But before the women “rock” the Birds of Prey racecourse, the Vail Valley will have an opportunity to “rock” Beaver Creek, along with the ladies as the Vail Valley Foundation and Beaver Creek Resort Company host a special free Super-G public bib presentation and concert Tuesday evening at McCoy's.

Scheduled to get underway at 5:30 p.m. with free cookies and cocoa, the Super-G bib presentation for Wednesday's race is slated for 6 p.m. before turning the evening over to the infamous Hell's Belles, the all-girl AC/DC tribute band. Door prizes will be given way including a Beaver Creek $500 shopping spree and a Vail Resorts Epic Pass.

“We are thrilled to have an opportunity to host the women's World Cup tour in Beaver Creek,” offered Michael Imhof, Vice President of Sales and Operations for the Vail Valley Foundation, “and we wanted to ensure that our community had a chance to celebrate this race with the ladies that will make it such a special occasion.”

Wednesday's race will mark the first time that the World Cup women will have the opportunity to race on the Birds of Prey course. The last time the ladies raced in Vail or Beaver Creek was during the 1999 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.

Designed by Swiss Olympian Bernhard Russi, Birds of Prey celebrated its coming out party in December of 1997. Since then, only Men's World Cup races have been contested on the renowned racecourse.

The public is reminded that McCoy's has a capacity of 400 people so plan on getting there early to ensure a space for the bib presentation and the free concert.

In addition to Wednesday's Women's Super-G, the transplanted races will include Men's Giant Slalom on Tuesday, December 6, and Men's Slalom on Thursday, December 8.

The 2011 Audi Birds of Prey World Cup Race Week is a project of the Vail Valley Foundation. For additional information on Birds of Prey, check out www.bcworldcup.com. For more information on the Vail Valley Foundation, visit www.vvf.org.
