Bickner 11th in Courchevel Grand Prix
Kevin Bickner (Wauconda, Ill.) finished 11th in the HS135 at a Summer Grand Prix event in Courchevel, France, Saturday.
Bickner sailed 125.0 meters in his first jump, and his second was 122.0. Russia's Evgeniy Klimov won the event with jumps of 132 and 129 meters.
"We should be satisfied with that result against this strong field of competitors, but there is still some space for improvement," said Bine Norcic, men's ski jumping head coach for USA Nordic. "We are confident to go to the next events and I am sure that this 11th place was not the best one of the season."
