M. Dukurs PČ occupies only the 16th place; re-triumphs the homeowner Grother / Day


Grother was 0.28 seconds ahead of Alexander Tretyakov of the Russian Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation (RBF) and 1.20 seconds ahead of compatriot Alexander Gasner.

British Matt Weston said goodbye to hopes for medals in the third race, taking sixth place after the first day. He fell after leaving the long bend and dropped to 23rd place, not on the fourth race.

RBF representative Nikita Tregubov also did not travel well, but the mistake in the combination of the fourth and fifth turns prevented T.Dukurs from overtaking him. With the eighth best result in the third race, T.Dukurs took the seventh place 1.99 seconds behind the leading German Christopher Grother, who with the best result in the race surpassed the representative of RBF Alexander Tretyakov, accumulating a handicap of 0.21 seconds before the last race.

The third after three races was the host Felix Keizinger, who was 0.64 seconds behind his compatriot. Another RBF representative, Yevgeny Rukosujev, was well ahead of Grother by 0.96 seconds.

M.Dukurs also did not give up the combination of the fourth and fifth turn, which ended with a heavy rebound, and failed to improve the position. In the race he had only the 16th best result, but managed to climb to the 12th place in the overall rating 3.06 seconds behind the leader.

Also in the fourth race M.Dukurs did not cope with the Altenberg track, making mistakes both in the combination of 3rd and 5th turns and leaving the lap, achieving the worst time in four races, ranking 17th in the race and finishing in 16th place in the sum of four races 4.38 seconds behind the winner.

Altenberg’s track was also unsuccessful for South Korean Olympic champion Sunbin Jun, who finished just behind Martin with 0.28 seconds behind him.

T. Dukurs performed much better than his brother, although the combination of 4th and 5th turns was not ideal. This allowed him to rank tenth in the race and seventh in the sum, 2.82 seconds behind the winner.

It has already been reported that Andy Steel was ranked 20th in its world championship debut on Friday, while German Tina Hermane won the laurels.

In the sum of four races, Hermane was ahead of his compatriot Jacqueline Lelling by 0.11 seconds. Herman was named world champion for the second year in a row.

RBF representative Jelena Nikitina was third and lost 1.68 seconds to the winner.

The steel winner lost 6.02 seconds and ranked 20th.

There will be a team competition on Saturday, but the season will end with a bobsleigh quad competition on Saturday and Sunday.

The World Cup season in 2020/2021 took place only in Europe, where skeleton and bobsleigh competitions took place on Latvian, German and Swiss tracks for eight weekends.
