A good day for Impulse and ARA

well, that's the last day of the champs here in Meribel as far as the Juniors are concerned and a great couple of great results for us here today and overall in the Juniors. Matt Thompson came 2nd Jun 2 and overall in the Slalom but then was on the second step of the podium for the jun 2 and overall combined junior prize. It was a close call for the overall!

And 2nd in the overall!

In the Junior one category, Richard Goldsworthy made third place in the slalom, just dropping a place after the first run.

So, a great day with points scores for most of our guys. An unfortunate niggling knee issue resurfacing for our Jamaican team athlete, Chelcie Bird, resulting in a trip to the med centre and a day out tomorrow. She scored her first points of the season yesterday to break her duck and install some confidence.

In Courchevel, our children's racers were in action at the Scottish children's champs with conditions being a little soft. They now move over to Meribel whilst the Juniors head to Courchevel for the next four days.

ONLY FOUR MORE EARLY STARTS!!! - I would say sunrises but, with the predicted rain/snow, it's likely to be cloudy for at least a couple of them.

Checking out the first course under floodlight this morning

Another bloody sunrise!!!
