Taylor Fletcher of the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club places 15th in Planica, Slovenia at the Summer Grand Prix, Gundersen LH HS140/10.0 Km.
28 year old Fletcher commented on his competition, “Today was a solid day. Nothing too special. I was late on my jump which caused me to miss out on a bunch at the end of the jump. The race was good, for sure, but I was all alone and didn’t get any help out there. With that, I am still happy with today as it was handfuls better than any competition from last year. Progress is all that matter and I am moving forward.”
Jumping Results: Speed 91.9 Distance 119.5 Points 50.1 with a round total of 88.0 and a + 2:39 difference. Fletcher finished the roller ski with a 25:48.6, +1:21.5.
