English Alpine Champs 2019 - Day 2

The Under-16’s entered the fray and NJR on Stella Alpina meant plenty of medals as the English Alpine Championships continued to enthral on day two. A spellbinding floodlight team parallel drew the curtain on a topsy-turvy day of racing across Stella Alpina and Stelvio with Team Ambition the big winners. Marc Telling’s outfit claimed victory in the night parallel, with outstanding individual displays from Katie Stuart, Lois Jackson and Sophie Foster making it a day to remember for those in light blue.
