The best ski jumper of the previous season will even take a break from training. He has expressed a desire to "reset" his mind; only then will he decide how to proceed. At the start of the Four Hills Tournament, he still had good feelings, but then nothing went according to plan. He has said that he is disappointed with himself.
"As the tournament progressed, I was getting less and less satisfied with the results. It's hard to say how far I am from getting the right feeling back. It can take a single jump, or it can take fifty. I have to forget my recent jumps; whatever happened, happened," said Prevc at the conclusion of the Four Hills Tournament. In last year's tournament, he won three of the four events and was the overall winner.
Even though he managed to "force" winning jumps last season, he is unable to do that this year. "A good result right now would mean as much as least year's overall victory in the tournament."
