Quotes:

Martins Dukurs (LAT, 2014 Olympic silver medallist, 2011, 2012 and 2015 World Champion)
“Strong competitors make for strong motivation. I tested a new sled in Winterberg. I’m happy with the material, but not quite so happy with my performance.”

Axel Jungk (GER, overall third in the 2014/2015 World Cup, sixth in the 2015 World Championships)
“My first podium placing at last. And about time too after coming third in the overall rankings last winter.”

Alexander Tretyakov (RUS, 2014 Olympic Champion, 2013 World Champion)
“Being on the podium is always good. And the strong competition also motivates me.”
