Andrey Makoveev: With snow my skis became slower
Andrey Makoveev commented on his performance in the relay at the World cup in Ruhpolding:
«I did the same work in the
In the race I had to keep the speed of my competitors. My leg was difficult as speedy and serious guys participated in it: Boe, Ferry, Birnbacher. My skis worked perfectly at the first lap, but with the snow they became slower. At the second lap it was hard to run fast and it influenced my standing shooting. I am unsatisfied with it, but I did what I could.
At the finish I had 26 seconds loss — it was not critical. It was not our day. The skis were not optimal. There will be other races, everything will be good.»
