The Catalan skeleton rider Ander Mirambell finished twenty-first in the seventh round of the World Cup of the 2020-21 season, played at the German Konigssee circuit, where the Barcelona rider competed with a muscle problem. Mirambell noticed a puncture in a quadriceps in the last supports before the opening jump of the first round, in which, despite an error in the second oscillation of the ‘kreisel’ the 360 degree curve of the circuit, and his later exit from the turn, he managed to tie with the Russian Danil Romanov and qualify both in twentieth place to dispute the second.
“The easy thing would have been to decide not to go out to protect the quadriceps, but that does not go with me. Even if it is lame leg, I go out to compete, because for me being on the sled and enjoying this sport is a real privilege”, said Mirambell, in a statement. In the second round, the pilot explained that the descent was much better, although he could not “perfectly trace the second swing of the kreisel either,” but the exit from this corner was more aggressive and clean. ”
“The driving and the weather have been good, but I leave with a bittersweet taste due to the injury and because I was not able to be more competitive. There are days when results are not as important as feelings, but you have to be very satisfied for being again among the best of the circuit,” he added. Next Friday the 29th World Cup will close the season at the Austrian circuit of Igls, in Innsbruck.
