Camerotas 20th, 21st in hurricane sprint

Eric Camerota was 20th and his twin brother Brett was right behind him in 21st Saturday as the best American skiers in a nordic combined World Cup-B hurricane sprint on 2002 Olympic venues.
SOLDIER HOLLOW, Utah — Eric Camerota was 20th and his twin brother Brett was right behind him in 21st Saturday as the best American skiers in a nordic combined World Cup-B hurricane sprint on 2002 Olympic venues.
    Tino Edelmann of Germany won his third consecutive World Cup-B event, topping Frenchman Nicolas Bal by 8.9 seconds. Eric Camerota, 21st in the lone round of jumping at Utah Olympic Park, was 16th fastest in the 7.5-kilometer race and finished 50.1 seconds behind Edelmann; Brett Camerota, 14th in jumping, was 51.4 seconds out at the finish at Soldier Hollow.
    In traditional sprint events, skiers start behind the leading jumper, according to a formula which translates points back in jumping into seconds back at the start of the race; in the hurricane sprint, the points behind the best jumper are converted to distance and all athletes start the sprint at the same time.
    The World Cup-B tour heads next to Lake Placid, New York, for competitions Wednesday and Thursday with jumping on the 1980 hill and cross-country racing at Whiteface Mountain.
