Kaprun, Austriaby US Team Coach Peter Foley

Today’s opening World Cup GS was a promising start for us, with Mike Jacobyfinishing 5th and Jeff Archibald 6th. Due to a last minute World Cupschedule change we were forced to cut our planned 15 day training camp inColorado to 5 days, to come to Europe. We are training through these races,but our results are a bit better than we expected for so early in thetraining cycle. Sondra Van Ert finished 8th, Anton Pogue moved up from astart position of number 42 to 19th place, and Rob Berney was 8th after thefirst run but crashed on the second run. We fly to Sweden on monday for thenext stop on the World Cup tour.
