I was thrilled to come home with the top result for GB in women’s sitting: a bronze medal and 4th in Giant Slalom!
Kelly Gallagher got a bronze and two silvers in the Visually Impaired class and Talan Skeels-Piggins won gold in the Pitztal Super G! A great start to the season for Team GB!
Unfortunately the races in Pitztal and La Molina were cancelled due to bad weather, scuppering our chances of qualifying for speed in the World Championships, I shall be focusing on the technical events; slalom and GS.
Thank you very much to the Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme, Get Kids Going, Salomon, Two Seasons and Oakley for their support! Training recommences early January for the World Championships.

Team GB arrived in Pitztal, Austria for the first Europa Cup. As we unloaded the van we heard shrill screams and jangling cowbells... and discovered the delights of Krampus festival. Out of the darkness, horned figures appeared making a lot of noise - and a herd of locals dressed in ancient costumes were busy chasing away bad winter spirits. Perhaps it'll bring us some luck in the races!
We loaded all monoskis up the mountain and have enjoyed morning training sessions in the sun but winter has returned with a vengeance just in time for the races at the weekend, it's going to be a cold one!
