Madrid-based Farrell, last year’s World Cup FIS SDH 2014 winner who is making his debut in S1 this year, said: “I’m satisfied with my results.

“They show a good development following my entry into this category.

“During qualification runs and semi-finals I had better times, even close to the podium with a fourth place, but I still lack consistency.

“These results give me strength and motivation for next season, where I hope to be fighting for positions on the podium.

“I know the speed is there.”

The World Cup circuit heads to Idre Fjaell, Sweden, for the next round this weekend, March 21 and 22.
