“It was a lot of fun fighting for the victory again and finishing second was a good way to finish it off,” Demong told usskiteam.com. “It was a pretty exciting finish. The first three guys finished within .5 seconds of eachother. I was in a group of guys fighting for the victory and I really went for it. It was really close and Bjoern [Kircheisen, Germany] went for it with less than 10 meters to go and just barely squeaked by.”

American Johnny Spillane also earned World Cup points in 27th place.

The team, now turns their attention to Oberhof, Germany, where they will compete Dec. 27-28. In Germany they will be joined by Todd Lodwick who swept the Continental Cups in Park City, UT, last weekend, as well as Brett and Eric Camerota.
