RacingWorld CupKershaw and Newell Make the Quarterfinals In Oberstdorf

FasterSkier FasterSkierFebruary 22, 2005

Vassili Rotchev of Russia posted the fastest qualifying time in the preliminary round of the World Championship classic sprint in Oberstdorf, Germany. Bjoern Lind was second, leading fellow Swedish qualifiers Mats Larsson and Thobias Fredriksson, the former World Champion in the freestyle technique. Norway managed to put all four of their starters into the top 16, with recent World Cup sprint winner Eldar Roenning replacing Jens Arne Svartedal who was reportedly sick.

The exciting news for North American fans is that both Canada and the US each have a skier advancing to the quarterfinals. Devon Kershaw skied a fantastic prelim, posting the 13th fastest time, only 3.51 seconds behind first. Andrew Newell wasted no effort whatsoever, squeeking into the top 16 by two-hundredths of a second. Newell and Kershaw will have the chance to race head-to-head against the World's best later today.

These were not the only noteworthy North American results however: Canadians George Grey and Drew Goldsack finished 19th and 21st respectively, while Torin Koos of the US team just missed the top 30, finishing 32nd behind Australian Paul Murray.

Stay tuned for results of the elimination heats later today, which will decide the final ranking of the top 16. You can follow the heats live here on fasterskier.com by clicking on the “Live World Cup Results” link on the lower right hand side of the home page.
