Anders Bardal and Tom Hilde will skip the World Cup in Kuusamo
The two Norwegian stars Anders Bardal and Tom Hilde will not travel to Kuusamo for the next World Cups, instead they will prepare themselves for the upcoming home events in Lillehammer next week.
Together with Anders Jacobsen and Kim Rene Elverum Sorsell, Bardal and Hilde will train in Vikersund on Wednesday and Thursday, then it is planned to jump in Rena or Lillehammer on the weekend.
"The conditions are perfect for ski jumping in Norway now, so I will use that advantage to get some more snow jumps. I feel I’m jumping well enough to compete in the World Cup, but I believe I can jump better", Tom Hilde writes on his website tom-hilde.com.
Besides Ole Marius Ingvaldsen, best Norwegian at the World Cup opening in Klingenthal as 13th, also Anders Fannemel, Rune Velta, Andreas Stjernen, Fredrik Bjerkeengen and Robert Johansson are on the team for Kuusamo.
