The team has been well-prepared and decked out this season by performance snowsports supplier Karbon, who have provided training and competition apparel to the British Moguls squad throughout the season.

The team is led by the Gerken Schofield trio who have all scored top five finishes at this event in the past.

Muir Delivers Perfect Week as McCormick Retains Title

The BRITS 2018 came to a close today with the ski competitions wrapping up and it was two familiar faces which were back on top of the podium.

Kirsty Muir could lay claim to being the outstanding athlete of this year’s event as she took out her third park and pipe event of the week.


Hill Tops Podium Again and Courtier-Jones Returns To Throne

Truly glorious spring conditions greeted competitors and spectators as they arrived on the Crap Sogn Gion for the final day of competition at the Brits 2018 and the British halfpipe championship.

Blue skies, high temperatures and a festival atmosphere were the perfect ingredients for a great contest in the almighty Laax halfpipe. Taking the spoils and the title of national champions were Maisie Hill and Lewis Courtier-Jones.


Packed day rounds out 2018 Championships

The postponement of events on Thursday led to a jam-packed program today as the 2018 Delancey British National Alpine Ski Championships wrapped up in Tignes.

The Under 14s and 16s both competed in Giant Slalom with the results also determining the overall champions, while the U10s and U12s competed in the pro slalom.

The U16 Giant Slalom was a Team Evolution one-two with Jack Cunningham (1:32.66) getting the edge over Robert Holmes (1:33.91) in a repeat of their head-to-head battle in Monday’s Super G, while BSA’s Diaco Abrishami (1:34.91) was third.


Cockrell Doubles Up as Allen lands maiden Overall British title

The third and penultimate day of competition at The BRITS 2018 defied weather reports yet again, and as the clouds rose, the stage was set for an amazing British Slopestyle Championship.

Dominating the kickers and rails of the pristine Laax Snowpark were perennial BRITS favourites Cerys Allen and Billy Cockrell, who added the Slopestyle title to the Big Air he won 24 hours previously.


Olympians Impress in Brits Halfpipe

Day three of The BRITS 2018 saw freestyle skiing action turn to the halfpipe where warmer-than-usual conditions greeted the field which was graced with a pair of Olympians in the men’s event.

GB Park & Pipe’s Peter Speight and Alexander Glavatsky-Yeadon made their Olympic debuts in PyeongChang less than two months ago and were back in Laax, with the pair vying for the top two places for the second straight year.

Indeed, Speight was looking to make another mark on this year’s BRITS having already shown his versatility with bronze in yesterday’s ski cross.


Cockrell and Giant Slaying Brookes Reign at Picture Big Air

The second day of competition saw a battle against the elements to crown British Champions in the newest Olympic discipline. With the top names from PyeongChang stepping aside, it was time for some new faces to conquer the winds and the almighty Laax pro line to claim the gold medals. When all was said and done, it was Billy Cockrell and Mia Brookes heading home with the overall national titles.
