Day 2 in Bormio – Megan celebrates her birthday in style!

What an amazing day it must have been for Megan Jenkins who celebrated her 15th birthday today. Not only did she receive the full happy birthday cheer from all of her fellow competitors and mums and dads but she also won the U16 girls Super G. Well done also to Anna Henderson, second and Isadora Taylor who came in third. Full results can be found on the Snow Sports England Website.

As many of you will know, as well as the boys and girls GS today, the FIS NJR Slalom took place which involves competitors from all over the world. Countries such as South Africa, Pakistan and Jamaica were represented along with Austria and Italy.
Oz girls 1We caught up with two racers from Australia, Toni Hadkinson (Oz cap) and Bobby Kelly both 19 who train under the European Development and Excellence Programme in Montgenevre and Claviere in (our) winter and then head back to Perisher in the Snowy Mountains (just outside Sydney) from June onwards. Good luck to the girls and Ross Peraudo, their 20 year old male racer, during the long season away from home.
FedericaBoth boys and girls slalom competitions came to a nail biting end as it seemed that every time a competitor came through the finish line she or he took top spot.
The honours were eventually bestowed on Federica Sosio (pictured) from Bormio and Max Luukko from Finland.

Congratulations to the best of our British racers Rachelle Rogers (CdS Courchevel) who came in a very respectable 6th place and Nicholas Moynihan (Kandahar) who came in a fantastic 3rd place, well done to both of you.

Our own Ravens had a great day too with Francesca Lee coming 8th in the Girls SG, well done Francesca…

Rory Farron came in a very respectable top 10 position (Rory with his personal coach John Greenwood)

Rory Farron came in a very respectable top position but it wasn’t all good news for Adam O’Mara who produced a solid first run in the NJR slalom but then crashed out in the final section on the second run. Tom Larby unfortunately didn’t finish the first run.

A little unfortunate but great practice and experience for these young men.
Weather tomorrow is forecast to be the same as today; bullet proof ice in the morning, some sun in the afternoon and temperatures about the same as today.
More racing tomorrow with the NJR GS for the boys and girls as well as the U12/U10 GS.

Once again good luck to you all.
