Quotes of the top 3 athletes:

Bor Pavlovčič
It’s good that all three jumps were great. I’m happy that I was relaxed and I hope for that also tomorrow. There are some things to improve but lately, when I try to improve on something bigger problems arrive. Tomorrow I’ll try to clear my head and enjoy.

Andreas Granerud Buskum
I felt really good today, all the way from training, through first and specially in the second round. I made good jumps. Tomorrow I need to improve the telemark. I like it here, it’s my favourite place, it’s beautiful.

Jurij Tepeš
I’m happy although I still jumped a little tense because I didn’t have good results in the previous competitions. Finally, I made it to the top three again in the Continental Cup, so I’m happy that things are getting better.
