The English Alpine Championships in Bormio brought mixed success this year.
Two incomplete slalom runs on Sunday and Monday was frustrating, particularly as I’d been performing well in training. The Alpine Combined was equally challenging after a solid Super-G with less than a second separating the top 4 GBR skiers. A mistake a few gates from the line in run 2 killed what was going to be a fast slalom time. A fifth place in the Super-G on Tuesday was OK but I could have been less cautious on what was a fairly straight course.
The week improved on Friday with a 3rd place in the GS and a good points result all helped by the presence of two-time world champion Ivica Kostellic on the start list. Now only 5 weeks until the British Championships in Tignes.
Thanks as ever to my coach Tom and to AMG and Rossignol for their continued support.
