In 2007 Jens Byggmark won the prestigious Kitzbühel World Cup race not once but twice and two days after this crazy breakthrough he ended up in second place in Schladming. Jens was 3rd in overall WC SL that year. His first WC season!!!
After that it followed a few troubled year with bikecrash, rule changes in the material and a lot more.

Still 2008 he managed to take 3 podiums and 10th place in the overall WC SL.
2009 he finished 2 races during the whole season and ended up 36.
2010 Jens changed skis and boots but he still had problems with his hip and self-confidence.
2011 a "new" Jens Byggmark hit the slopes again. Clever, focused and targeted skiing. The whole season was to charge up for the World Championship in Garmish-Partenkirchen, Germany. Jens managed to take the Silver-medal with bib nr 18 in a tricky and bumpy course. Now ranked 10th at WCSL he´s ready to win again.
Tune in for 2012 years World Cup season and watch it happen!
