Billy Demong was the top American finisher Saturday in Park City, Utah, during the second weekend of Continental Cup action.
Demong returned to the U.S. after two weeks on the World Cup tour. He was fifth Saturday in a photo finish.
Germany’s Sebastian Reuschel was first, Norway’s Joergen Graabak was second, and Germany’s Wolfgang Boesl was third.
Demong was in 18th place after the jumping portion and moved up throughout. His time of 28 minutes, 4.2 seconds was just two seconds behind Reuschel.
Eric Camerota was ninth, and Nick Hendrickson was 20th.
Action continues today in Park City.
Those on the World Cup A circuit weren’t as lucky, however. The Nordic combined World Cup in Ramsau, Austria, was canceled Saturday because of inclement weather. Another competition is scheduled for today.
