The new doubles team of Matt Mortensen and Jayson Terdiman were seventh in their World Cup debut. On a day where the ice softened and became frosty with the rising mercury, the Americans advanced from 10th at the intermission and improved three spots with their second effort. They were 0.74 off the pace.
