Today saw the second FIS Telemark World Cup Sprint, here in Hintertux, Austria. Once again Switzerland’s Amelie Reymond took a convincing win, ahead of Norway’s Mathilde Ilebreeke and Thea Lunde. And in the men’s race, the German Team stole the show with Tobi Mueller and Jonas Schmid taking the 1-2, followed by Stefan Matter from Switzerland, after a tightly contested second run!
British Team results:
Jasmin – 6th
Tara – 13th
Jasper – 19th
Alec – 30th
Louis – DNF
Ex-British Team racer and World Cup commentator, Jack Harvard Taylor, commented: “Today was tough, but I saw a huge amount of potential in everyone’s skiing at certain points on the course. With two runs in the sprint event – consistency is absolutely the key to success, both physically but also psychologically”.
Tomorrow the team will compete in the Parallel Sprint, going head-to-head againgst the other nations in what will be a very exciting race!
