eve comment Claudius PesciaTricolor Team Manager: “The boys are well prepared and also showed excellent form at the last tournament in Aberdeen. The training sessions here at the Curling Club in Ottawa have shown me that the team is focused and motivated and by Saturday we will also have cleared the time difference. The goal tonight is to qualify for the play-offs, which is the limit. Less than the goal in view of the bronze medals obtained at the world and continental level in recent years and given the excellent results both in major tournaments and in World Curling Tour Championships Even the two best lineups in the group will give us the opportunity to go straight to the semifinals, but We must remain humble in realizing that in a World Cup, with such a long and demanding programme, there are no match days. Above all, we will find ourselves up against strong opponents: We have a very difficult start but we will do everything we can to get off strong. Consistency will be key; The quality is there, just bring it on ice.”
