The German Ski Federation has just announced the home team for the upcoming competitions in Schonach in the Black Forest. These eleven athletes will be starting for Germany:

Wolfgang Bösl
Philipp Blaurock
Tino Edelmann
Manuel Faißt
Eric Frenzel
Tobias Haug
Björn Kircheisen
Jakob Lange
Tom Lubitz
Fabian Rießle
Johannes Rydzek

„Björn Kircheisen, Fabian Rießle and Johannes Rydzek will be missing some stamina because they have been sick just now but as there are still a couple of days left until the competitions, I have the hope that they can still do well in the Schwarzwaldpokal“, head coach Hermann Weinbuch says.

„This is our goal: we want to present top performances to the home audience. I am really happy for the organisers in Schonach, finally they have some snow and the temperatures should be okay as well. Strong winds are forecasted for the competition weekend but this can always change. I am sure that Schonach will be presenting Nordic Combined in a beautiful winter setting.“
