Fletcher Top 10 in Seefeld Triple
SEEFELD, Austria (Jan. 18, 2015) - Bryan Fletcher (Steamboat Springs, CO) scored his fourth top-10 of the season, finishing ninth in the Seefeld Triple. Germany’s Eric Frenzel remained unbeaten, repeating as champion of the three-day mini-tour.
Fletcher continued to improve on his jumping, which has been a difference maker for him since the holiday break. He jumped to 14th, then gained more than a minute, 20 seconds in cross country to advance to ninth.
“Today was another solid day on the jump hill adding to my confidence there,” said Fletcher. “The race was solid and I was really happy to finish in the top ten.”
The World Cup tour now heads to Sapporo for a pair of events next weekend.
Today was another solid day on the jump hill adding to my confidence there. The race was solid and I was really happy to finish in the top ten. It was a strong comeback after my 39th place finish the first day. So I am excited to build on this momentum going into Japan. Hoping for some strong results there.
Dave Jarrett, Nordic Combined Head Coach
Solid result from Bryan. In fact if you calculate the results from yesterday only as a standalone comp (and not a mini-tour), Bryan would have won! The Seefeld Triple is a cool event but I think there could be some nice tweaks to make it more interesting. Perhaps, 1 jump/5/10/15km or in the reverse order.
