Strong Club Racing in the South West

Lat night we visited Torquay Ski Club to see some great training at a strong club, members of which had taken quite a few podiums at the Celtic Cup during the past weekend.
It was good to see training at this very well kept facility with good numbers on a warm Monday evening.

Torquay has a strong pedigree of producing great racers and national team members such as the Brown brothers (Rob, Sam and Tom) and their current top racer, Jai Geyer who is a member of the British Alpine team. It was good to see the man responsible for much of this, Ron Batley, at the centre. Ron is no longer coaching but the head coach, Chris Tonge, is continuing this legacy.
We are hoping to do some work in the future with the club and some of it's members so will be watching these racers with some interest.
