Born in Finkenberg, Tyrol, Stock earned his first World Cup points at age 18 in January 1977. At the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, Stock was originally an alternate for the downhill, but his fast training times on the course at Whiteface Mountain earned him a spot on the four-man Austrian team. On race day, he was the ninth racer on the course and posted the fastest time to win the gold medal.
Stock could not repeat his surprise win at the Lake Placid Olympics on the World Cup tour until almost a decade later, winning downhill races in 1989, 1990, and 1992. At the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, he just missed a second Olympic medal, finishing fourth in the |downhill and eighth in the Super-G at Nakiska. He now runs a hotel  in his birthplace in the Zillertal.
In his many years on the circuit, it is fair to say, he never was a star - but maybe one of the best to start from a low place on the starting list - and reach top 10 on many occasions. A feat that he would repeat again and again, leading to a saying "Before Stock is down, we cannot give the crown".
