Žak was all fired up after taking the national title and having good time on the practice runs in Lenzerheide, but the qualification run ended up in disappointment. He went on the track with everything he has but got a big surprise early on as one of the corners was completely blown away and Žak went off the perfect line. In fact, he almost got off the course, somehow saved it and then continued down the hill. He improved his time and position with each of the next sectors, but the damage was already done.
Jure finished his weekend ever earlier. He crashed hard on the European champs in Maribor and is still struggling with recovery. He tried to race, but his body said no. He’ll also miss the race in Andorra.
