Rauris World Cup, back to Les Houches!

Posted on:

I have returned home from the British section of the Telemark World Cup held in Rauris in Austria.  Sadly, because of a lack of snow the Slovenian round of the World Cup has been cancelled.

The first day of racing was the Sprint where ended in 5th position after the first run but moved down to 6th place after the second run after gathering too many penalties at the jump.

Following my results last season and in the British Championships earlier this month I am delighted to announce my most recent sponsorship deal with Trowers & Hamlins.

Trowers & Hamlins is an international law firm with offices throughout the UK, Middle East and South East Asia. It is with their support that I have been able to improve my training and my equipment which all makes a massive difference on results and it feels great to compare with other seasons knowing you’ve done better than the year before.

Since returning home to Les Houches (Chamonix Mont-Blanc) I have been catching up on recovery, training and having had a “big dump” of snow last night – myself, coach (Seb Mansart) and training buddy Clément Bergeretti headed up the mountain to enjoy today’s powder.
