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.

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.

Two new champions take to Slalom podium

A pair of new names found themselves on top spot of the podium at the 2018 Delancey British National Alpine Championships in Tignes today.

The prime events of the day decided the Under 16 Slalom Championships, while the Under 10s and Under 12s took part in combi races on a cross-style course.

When defending champion and 2018 Giant Slalom gold medallist Daisi Daniels failed to finish the first run, the U16 Girls Slalom was thrown wide open and Annabella Jallat took her chance with both hands, coming from behind to claim the Southampton Ski Club Cup by more than a second.

YOUTH WINS THE DAY AS HILL AND NIGHTINGALE SCOOP FIRST TITLES OF BRITS ‘18

Fears of forecasted gale-force winds were blown aside as bluebird conditions dawned on day one of competition at the Brits 2018, confining the storm to the Laax cross course and the British Snowboardcross Championships. After an incredible day of racing, it was young-guns Maisie Hill and Huw Nightingale who forewent their age categories to dominate the open event and stole the titles from under the noses of established racers.

PICTURE BIG AIR OPENS WINDOW TO THE FUTURE

The BRITS 2018 kicked off in LAAX, Switzerland today with the Picture Organic Clothing Ski Big Air providing a glimpse into the future with six teenagers filling the overall podium places today.

 

With increasingly windy conditions threatening to impact the standard of a Super Final, organisers instead decided to conduct a straight two-run Final after an hour of practice with competitors having little room for error.

Ward and Carrick-Smith continue good form

Windy conditions greeted competitors and spectators today at the 2018 Delancey British National Alpine Ski Championships in Tignes and it was two of yesterday’s stars which shone brightest in the Under 14 Slalom.

Isla Ward (Apex Ski Club) was runner-up in 2017 but this year she has gone one better to stand atop the Under 14 Girls Slalom podium.

She is now a two-time winner this week, adding the Midland Ski Club Cup to her victory inn yesterday’s Super G.
