Mixed Fortunes In Champoluc

Today saw the FIS slalom here in Champoluc. The weather was the same as yesterday (but a little colder!).
This meant that the conditions for the SL were excellent and the track held up very well.
We had two challenging courses and, unfortunately, run one saw only four of our six boys finish with Matt and Jack both falling victim the the fast rhythm changes of the course.
Run two started well with Max Wheatman going first as he'd made the flip in 15th place. he put down a great run until 6 gates from the end where he skied wide, giving us a bit of a moment but he held on to finish. Sam and Elliot went next but both struggled with the numerous rhythm changes and failed to finish. Ed followed and managed to finish, scoring his first FIS SL points.
With only 16 of the field finishing both runs, it proved to be a tough day. Max Wheatman was pleased to get his first place in Jun 2 of the Brits.
