A trio of USA jumpers traveled to Falun for the final FIS Cup of the Summer. Among the group included Chris Lamb who has been training with Norway’s Trondhoppers Klub, Colorado’s Trevor Wert, and Nick Johnson, who has spent much of the off-season jumping with the Polish National Team.
At the September 19th event, Germany went one-two with Nico Herman and Joerg Ritzerfeld, with the Americans jumping to a 7th place for Chris Lamb, 12th place for Tervor Wert and a 19th for Nick Johnson.
