First races of the season due up in the next feed hours. It’s a series of IBSF races in Yanqing that aren’t World Cup events, yet should feature many of the teams you’d expect to see on circuit. 

Good results for :GBR. We always do well on new tracks, where our main rivals don’t have the inherent advantage of long experience.

Our athletes were not in China.


This actually gives me hope that they are already prepping for the qualifications in North America. By far the easiest qualification route. :p

Nice 6th place finish for :TTO in yesterday’s NA CUP.

Virtually guaranteed to qualify at that rate.

 

Meanwhile, Croatian crew getting a DQ (most likely due to being overweight) is quite upsetting...

It depends on how crowded the Euro Cup and World Cup fields are. 68 points for a 20th place World Cup finish and 75 for a NA Cup win. You need to be at the top of the NA Cup to really cash in I think.

120 is awarded for a NA Cup win.

 

For reference, our 2-man crew qualified for Pyeongchang while counting some 13th places from the NA Cup (60 pts).

Oh, is it different for skeleton then. I was looking at last years results, and win only counted for 75 points.
