British Champs

Hi guys,

The British Champs is over and it went pretty well. I had a couple of days of in Morzine staying with SKI PURPLE GOAT which was great as i have not had the chance to relax for a while. The program was pretty hectic in Meribel with lots of races. We got 1 day off in 2 and a half weeks so it was great to finally get a lie in. I won the Under 18 GS at the seniors and finished a surprising 3rd in the Juniors Slalom which i am very happy with. I made some results and suffered some misfortune but i'm over it haha. Right now I'm in Pila which is one the other side of the Mont-Blanc tunnel in Italy. I have 4 races here which begin tomorrow with 2 Slaloms. I found some form in Slalom last week so fingers crossed it will continue for these final races before the end of a rather long and intense season. I go home for a day on Friday then I leave for a BASI qualification course in Zermatt for 10 days. So really the season is not ending until May. 

I will let you know how these races go now I have internet.

Austrian National Champs

Today the GS went really well, i scored my best ever GS result which was a 53. I had a good first run but made a few too many mistakes on the second. Considering my recent performances and results i will settle for today's result. Some of the best skiers in the world raced so it was good to be able to watch them and compete against them.

We have a day off tomorrow and then off to the AUT National Championships SG. 

Speak Soon

Slovenia not so great

Slovenia did not end up as well as planned. I crashed on the first day on the 1st run and fell over on the 2nd day on the second run. Pretty annoyed with the result to be honest but i have a few more gs races coming up at the Austrian National Champs

Slovenia coming up.

Hi everybody,

Sorry for the lack of posting, we have been travelling from place to place training and we have had absolutely no internet anywhere. Training has been good, skied Slalom today which i crashed a couple of times but the runs i finished were pretty decent. Just trying to find some solid and consistent form before the British Champs in Meribel. Tomorrow i have a day off and we travel to Skofja Loka for 2 GS races then over to Innerkrems for 2 more GS races. I am really looking forward to racing GS after the dissapointment in China so it should be good to get back. Hand is good and i took my cast off a few days back, just skiing around with a support incase i crash again and hit it. Apart from that, there is nothing much to report.

Hi everybody,

Chinese internet has really slowed me down with the blogging and i'm sorry. I'm having a great time out here and it really has been an experience to remember. The SG and DH races actually went pretty well and i made results in both which i am happy about. Sadly i crashed out of my best event yesterday which is really gutting. Tomorrow i am racing Slalom and then heading over to Harbin before our 5am flight back to Beijing then the UK. I trained SL today which was cool just to get into the rhythm and get the feet moving again. 

It really is different out here, the way of life and the people are so cool. Everybody is so friendly and helpful and there is even a 500 man army here to ensure the safety haha. That is not a joke. There is an all you can eat buffet full of chinese food which i love and an immense spa. Not really what we are used to when we are on the road so its a nice change. And everything is so cheap. We bought a huge cake made fresh with icing and the trimmings for £3. I don't know if any of the races so far have been on european tv, but the second run of tomorrow's Slalom is being broadcasted at 10.30 UK time or 11.30 European time on Eurosport 2. Keep your eyes open. 

Tomorrow night we will probably grab some drinks in Harbin and visit the ice festival which is supposed to be incredible then back to Europe for a few days and my theory then over to Austria again.

See ya

China Today

Hi everybody,
I'm leaving to China today and thought i'd let you all know how things have been over in the UK. Not been doing too much to be honest, just resting and seeing friends etc. Went into London a couple of times to pick up some clothes for the trip and stayed at Nick's for a night. I leave the house at 4 today although my flight is at 9 haha. We need to be there by 6, don't really know why. I'm really excited and can't wait to get there. I think i have my first DH training run on Thursday so i will try my best to let you know what is going on depending on the internet situation.

Take care
