At the beginning of the season, back in December, we had plenty of snow. It unfortunately meant not much time for skiing gates, but we did have some awesome powder days!
The first race of the season was a French Cup in Celliac, France. I had a good day of racing and finished with a 1st place! Here are a few photos.
Then it was on to the British Telemark Championships in Rauris, Austria. After a very long, 10 hour train journey, I finally arrived the evening before the first race. The week was successful and to cut the story short, I won Overall British Champion! Happy days
The World Cup followed the British Champs. The above picture is from opening ceremony. As the race was run by the British, so we lead the other nations through the streets of Rauris. After the march we ended up in the town square and the following days bib numbers were drawn.
Unfortunately, the races were called off due to warm snow fall meaning the snow was heavy and dangerous to race on. Luckily, the races were perfect once we got to Slovenia though. The slope had artificial snow, and everywhere else was green. Very strange!
The race was a lot of fun and in the end, I finished both days in 12th position. Not bad, but not good.
Now looking forward to spending the coming weeks in Les Houches, France. I’m curently working for the British Ski Academy, and training with my coach Seb Mansart.
