Season sadly to end from injury but I’ve had some good times


The races in France were a good opportunity to do well. I had good conditions and I felt my mentality and skiing was improving with each run, however it’s nowhere near how it should have been. My best result from the seven races this season is a 120 which is terrible, I nearly scored that at the end of my first 12 months in ski racing! The groin injury and the ankle have both been playing up and with it being so late in the season the coaches have Read More

Austria was poor, but now off to France!!


The races in Mellau were a wakeup to the spirit of racing. I was very tentative and skied shocking but I at least managed to finish the second day. An improvement race on race is what I’m aiming for and that happened there and will hopefully continue next week as I’m off to four races in France’s Southern Alps. I’m looking forward to getting some training done in the meantime, hopefully the leg doesn’t play up too much, it held out ok to Read More

Off to race in Österreich


I’ve had a solid week of training since the tendon hoopla and so I’m off for two CITADINES races in Mellau, Austria to get back into the swing of things.

There are generally fewer racers, i.e. 100 instead of 140 so it’s much more possible to get into the thirty, a big help to score points. I’ve never been to this place before but Austria’s Read More

First race cancelled but I’m back training


Today I had my first race, sooner than expected but it was the Welsh championships, known for good points for rankings due to low numbers of racer entries… It was however cut short after the timing had broken and by the time it was replaced at 1 pm there was not enough daylight time to run the second run of the boys. It’s a shame, the races are usually run very efficiently and are a good atmosphere because lets be honest, noone expects Read More

Queenstown NorthFace Peak to Peak Challenge


Having spent most of this week training and racing as the Cardrona HPC team we decided to do the peak to peak challenge from the top of Remarkables ski area down through Queenstown and up through to Coronet Peak Ski field. The five relay legs were Skiing, Downhill Mountain biking, Kayaking, Running and Road biking. I got lucky to do the skiing leg and was doing well in 4th (of 129 racing) until I hit something and crashed a treat. It took ages to Read More
