Jumping Farther, Skiing Faster
We had yet another day of solid results in Oberstdorf. Two guys in the points again. I jumped to 30th and skied up to 23rd. Brett C was able to jump to 9th and hold his place. The race was a crazy one. Lots of position changes and some heavy wind and rain made the race a very hard one. Taylor F. Had a good day as well skiing from 52nd up to 31st with the 4th fastest. Making that two top 5 times in the same weekend. He almost made points but ran out of course, he will be looking for revenge in the next comps in Oberweisenthal.
Our team is now in Klingenthal, training on the hill here and resting up for a couple days before we head into our next two comps. Everyone is feeling good and ready to battle again. We are looking to better our results still. Until then we are just trying to jump as far as possible on Klingenthal's big hill. Today I was able to jump 136, however my goal is over 140m which is very possible on this hill with a good jump and the right conditions! Wish us luck!
