It was an action-packed weekend for the newly branded GB Snowsport team, with five athletes competing.
There were Brits in action for the first World Cup Slopestyle of the season in Stubai and Alpine races in North America.
Here is a round up from the Stubai, Killington and Lake Louise World Cups:
Stubai Ski Slopestyle
GB Snowsports had three athletes compete in Stubai, Austria for the first slopestyle World Cup of the season. Olympic Bronze medallist Izzy Atkin was riding in the women’s event, whilst James “Woodsy” Woods and Chris McCormick were flying the flag for Great Britain in the men’s comp.
The qualification runs were on the Friday morning before the final and the field was tightly packed in both the female and male events. Nearly 100 athletes competed to qualify over a best-of-two run format.
Atkin qualified in great style with a best run score of 86.00 which placed her fourth and comfortably put her through to the final. 16-year-old Kelly Sildaru of Estonia raised the bar high in qualification with a massive 97.00 score.
On the men’s side, there were three separate heats each one stacked with the world’s best riders, making qualifying a tougher affair than usual. Woods had a solid score of 83.75 to put him through to final. McCormick narrowly missed out on qualification in his heat by two points and ended up placing a career best 26th in Stubai.
