Before the start of the pace in Canada - start the season for leisurely "classic hunter" fuses?  - Play

Beat Fuse enters the North American race without any specific goal. The Olympic champion relies on his routine.

The cancellation of the planned double descent in Zermatt was not inconvenient for Beat Fuse: “I didn’t train more often in the summer than Zermatt would have been earlier,” said the 35-year-old. Thus, the pre-season could go like previous years. “I’m at an age where you don’t have to turn everything upside down anymore.”

Speed ​​coach Reto Nyedegger’s assessment is similar: “He usually needs a few races to get in. But then it ‘marches’.” He had a good impression of the last few days of training: “With Beat everything is always stable and he is fast. You can always count on him.”
