Halvor Egner Granerud

We feel like we did a good job this summer. We have trained a lot and we used much time dealing with the equipment. Now we are going to get a feedback on how good we did our task during the summer. -tells Alexander Stöckl to the Norwegian Ski Federation.

According to Johann Andre Forfang, the season opening in Wisla is going to be raw.

A nice hill with fantastic atmosphere. I feel like my jumps got better and better after the nationals, so the transition to ice track seems to go well. The summer season was very good for me: I got to train well and jump good from time to time- said Forfang to the federation.

The World Cup weekend will start with the qualification on Friday and continues with the team competition on Sarurday. The individual competition will take place on Sunday.
