QUOTES
Noah Hoffman
It was an incredibly challenging race. It strung out more than any World Cup I’ve ever competed in, and I think I did as well as I could have today. I don’t have any regrets with my race execution. I’m happy to take points in the first two sprint bonuses. I’m close to achieving my season-long World Cup goals, and I’m looking forward to one more opportunity in Falun next week.
