Olympians show their class in Tignes

Two of Britain’s leading skiers were clinical in today’s racing at the 2018 Delancey British National Alpine Ski Championships.

Just over a month since the curtain closed on their first Winter Olympic Games, Laurie Taylor won the Howden Men’s Giant Slalom while Charlie Guest defended her Howden Ladies’ Slalom title.

The course proved a real challenge for the men with almost half the starters failing to finish the opening run including defending champion Charlie Raposo. It was an opportunity Laurie Taylor grabbed with both hands, opening up a lead of more than a second.

An update from the Snowsport England Alpine Committee

The SSE Alpine Committee has committed itself to encouraging all regions and clubs to increasing race entrants within the 2018 calendar by 10% over last year. We are seeking increases from existing racers but also asking you to support new unique club members who have not entered our races before. This applies to GBRs, CNs, Inter-regional and Inter-club races.

SSE Regional grants awarded for 2018 will be taking into account increased club membership and participation so there can be a pay-off for those regions that are successful in this Alpine endeavour!!

Major & Cooper claim downhill crowns

Following a perfect weather day yesterday in Tignes to open the 2018 Delancey British National Alpine Ski Championships, the snow arrived today and the forecast of worsening conditions later in the week brought forward the National Championship Downhill races to today.

The ladies’ race was robbed of one of its favourites in practice when Super G winner Cara Brown suffered a knee injury which is expected to sideline her for the rest of the season.

With just one speed ski event left on the 2017/18 FIS World Cup calendar, the season is all but over, however there was still some great action last week and over the weekend.

British freestyle skiers were in France for the final halfpipe World Cup of the season while the British Telemark Team was in Switzerland for the World Cup Finals and Junior World Championships, and once again it was Jasmin Taylor creating the headlines.
