QUOTES Tim Fuchs – Germany The competition was very difficult, but we had good jumps.
Mika Schwann – Austria It was so amazing! We were in fourth place the whole second round, then the last jump came, and it’s just unbelievable now. It’s amazing.
The hill was prepared very well. The wind was kind of changing, but all in all it was OK.
Ziga Jelar – Slovenia We knew we were we’re in good shape, so we expected first or something, so it’s real nice. It was close, a little bit windy at the end. But I think our jumps were good and the hill was good – it’s awesome!
Julia Huber – Austria Everyone on our team showed some good jumps and we all can be satisfied. I didn’t show some good jumps until today, so I’m really happy about today. We didn’t think about a specific place, we just wanted to jump and see where it would bring us. So this is better than expected.
Gianina Ernst – Germany We did our best jump and now we are very happy to win. It was a great competition, a little bit difficult with the wind, but everyone did well, and now we win it, so we’re very happy.
Ema Klinec - Slovenia I came here without any expectations because I was looking to just do my best jumps. I’m not satisfied with my jumps, but I’m really happy with our team.
