The German biathletes want to build on their terrific performances in Hochfilzen. How to watch the World Cup in Hochfilzen live on TV and stream.

Hochfilzen – Things are going well for the German biathletes this winter.

Franziska Preuß carefully stowed the yellow jersey in her suitcase, Philipp Nawrath presented the feat briefly during a detour back home. Both would love to get used to their new favorite color at the second World Cup. "Hochfilzen is actually the neighbouring biathlon facility for me," rejoiced Bayer Nawrath and sent a small declaration of war: "I want to continue where I left off in Östersund."

The euphoria in the German team is huge after two victories and ten podium finishes at the start of the season. "We are going to the World Cup in Hochfilzen with an extremely positive feeling," said Sports Director Felix Bitterling: "Of course, such successes do something to a team in terms of self-confidence." However, this is "not a matter of course. Accordingly, we arrive in a positive mood, but without any form of arrogance."

Fluorine wax ban causes uncertainty

Especially since there is a good deal of uncertainty due to the fluorine wax ban. In Östersund, the German skis went splendidly in dry and cold conditions. For the sprints on Friday (11.25 a.m. and 14.25 p.m./ARD and Eurosport), slight plus degrees are forecast for the first time this season, and precipitation is expected in Tyrol at the weekend. "We don't know how we'll fare in wetter conditions," chief technician Sebastian Hopf told the SZ.

There is currently "naturally a lot of trial and error," Bitterling explained. It is now necessary to "work out almost everything from scratch". Therefore, "the frequency of extremes will increase." It is "hard work every day," says Hopf: "It has become a new science." Uros Velepec is much more optimistic. "We can only trust our ski technicians," the new men's head coach emphasized to Münchner Merkur and tz: "They are doing an excellent job."

This also applies to himself as the successor of Mark Kirchner, among other things he pushed down the shooting times of his protégés extremely. "Thinking faster, firing the first shot faster, being focused faster, being mentally there 100 meters before the shooting range and then getting into position faster," explained the Slovenian: "That was a lot of drill, a lot of work. In these segments, we have come closer to the Norwegians."

However, the 56-year-old explained that the team is still "far from being too enthusiastic yet": "The job is far from done. The long season, the World Championship, the home races, where we want to inspire our fans, all that is still to come. And we want to attack the Norwegians, the French, Samuelsson and Ponsiluoma all the time." This will be "hard work".

But above all, the overall World Cup leaders Preuß and Nawrath seem to be prepared. (sid/kk
