DANIEL ZUGG AND ARMIN HÖFL (AUT)
Only Armin Höfl will compete in the individual race, as Daniel Zugg skips the first event of the championships. The two are planning to participate in the team race as an Atomic-tandem then. For the vertical race and the relays, both are nominated as well.
TONI LAUTENBACHER (GER)
After long-lasting health issues, the German athlete had his first race last weekend and is not in top form yet. It is likely that he will concentrate on the short competitions vertical race, sprint, and relay.
SAMUEL EQUY (FRA)
Equy plans to compete in the individual and in the vertical race, where he has chances to win a medal in the Espoir-category.
We should not forget to direct our eyes on John Gaston (USA) who fully focused his preparation on the battle with the top European athletes and also take a look onto the Backland-athletes in the junior competitions (junior and cadet), who also want to show what they can do.
