This seems like the first World Cup weekend this year when it was not just all Norway. A young Italian man won the sprint and former Junior World Champion Stina Nilssson finished 2nd.

For many years the entrance to our production facility was a mess. The reason the entrance was so cluttered is because we needed a fairly large space to make the carbon composite shafts. We used one room to apply the carbon to the core. This room was next to the test lab and the design facility that is on the second floor. The room for the application of the epoxy and for the eight-hour oven cure was on the first floor. As a result a large portion of the entrance was used as a storage room. The entrance was full of storage racks and work tables with components.
