QUOTES
Nate Holland
I’m cool with the delay. We want to figure out who the fastest man is at the Olympics for that gold medal, and when you take the visibility away some screwy stuff can happen. So hopefully we get some sunshine tomorrow and I’ll be ready then. It was just a dress rehearsal today and I felt comfortable. I was ready to go today if I had to. I’ve done my homework. I know the ins and outs of this course. I’ll be ready to fire tomorrow.

Nick Baumgartner
I can’t change the weather. Stressing about it is not going to change it, so I just hope tomorrow is going to be a good day and we can get it done. If not then I hope the next day or the next day we get it done.
