:NOR team for Wisla:

 

Daniel-André Tande

Robert Johansson

Johann André Forfang

Robin Pedersen

Thomas Aasen Markeng

Marius Lindvik

 

It's a bit of a surpise that Halvor Egner Granerud has not been selected. He was 15th in the overall world cup and 3rd best Norwegian last season. He was also the 3rd best Norwegian jumper in the summer grand prix, so I would have expected to see him here. However, he was 56th in the qualification last year in Wisla. It could be a reason. Besides, they probably want to see how the young Thomas Aasen Markeng can perform in the World Cup. It was most likely a decision between Granerud and Pedersen and they likely selected Pedersen because of Granerud's poor perfomance on the hill last year.

Something like 24 hours before the start of the new season in Wisla. Let´s start with a small quick preview

 

This time we will have 36 races, including the prestigeous 4 Hills Tournaments in Germany and Austria during the new years holidays period. The whole world cup 2019/20 edition will finish in Vikersund 14th and 15th March, one week later Planica will host the Ski Flying World Championships (20.-22. March) to close the whole season.

 

 

Ryoyu Kobayashi will enter the season as the big globe defender and will try to be the only second ski jumper in history to win the world cup back to back two years in a row after the legendary finn Janne Ahonen. To achieve that the japanese will need to get as close as possible to his previous season´s shape which he completely dominated. He confirmed his dominance of the season also by winning all 4 hills tournament races (After Sven Hannawald and Kamil Stoch only the third jumper in history with this perfect record)

 

The Austrian Stefan Kraft, who finished second in the last season, should be one of the most serious opponents of the Japanese in the overall ranking. + Traditionally the strong Poles, Norwegians and German ski jumpers willl be certainly the other world cup big globe contenders.

 

The Germans under the austrian coach Stefan Horngacher will have anyway to miss this whole season their PC 2018 Normal Hill Olympic champion Andreas Wellinger due knee injury but are waiting for the return of Severin Freund from last years major injuries, his come back is expected already this december.

Could you please remind me and @Olympian1010 why aren't you an author at Totallympics Media? Such a text would fit it perfectly.

it's definitely an interesting offer. but I have to refuse, I am already extremely busy. Taking further commitments would not be fair from me to you.

Lame :p. I completely understand, that’s why I hadn’t bothered to offer you a position long ago. The same goes for @phelps, although I believe I did offer him a spot :d

We should really do a prediction contest (an official forum one) for the 4 Hills Tournament one of these days :d
