There were some impressive performances across disciplines for GB Snowport in the past week, with athletes competing in Cross Country, Para Alpine, Park and Pipe, Para Nordic and Moguls.

Here is a round-up of the results:

Park and Pipe: Toyota Revolution and Dew Tour

The big news from the US was that Zoe Atkin won back-to-back halfpipe competitions at the Toyota Revolution tour in Copper Mountain. Atkin scored high in both events impressing the judges with consistent top-level runs. Teammate Constan Brogden also qualified for both finals and had solid results of 5th and 6th. Impressive performances all round in Copper Mountain.

James Woods was the sole competitor for Great Britain in the Dew Tour Slopestyle event, with a highly competitive field. Woods finished 7th and only missed out on a podium by 10 points. Canada’s Evan McEachran won the Dew Tour Slopestyle ahead of Alex Hall of USA, with Sweden’s Henrik Harlaut in third place. 

     

Para Alpine: Europa Cup St Moritz

2014 Paralympic gold medallist Kelly Gallagher and guide Gary Smith won two Giant Slalom races in St Moritz, Switzerland at the Europa Cup. Fellow Brits Menna Fitzpatrick and guide Jen Kehoe shared the podium with Gallagher and Smith in the first GS, where they placed third.

Fifteen-year-old visually-impaired skier Neil Simpson, alongside guide Jamie Robertson, continued his solid form coming into the early part of his career with a fourth and sixth place in the giant slalom. Paralympian Chris Lloyd finished 15th in the standing Giant Slalom category.

A great performance from the para-alpine team going into the first World Cup in Sella Nevea, Italy on Wednesday. 

Cross Country: Davos World Cup

Andrew Musgrave continued his impressive form in long distance events by placing 10th in the 15km Freestyle, whilst teammates Andrew Young and James Clugnet finished 48th and 83rd respectively. The race was won by Russia’s Evgeniy Belov ahead of France’s Maurice Manificat, with Martin Johnsrud Sunby of Norway third.

All three Brits were in action in the men’s sprint race, Clugnet was the best of the trio with a 28th place, with Young 33rd and Musgrave 38th. Norway’s Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo beat Federico Pellegrino of Italy to win the Sprint final, with France’s Baptiste Gros third. 

Moguls: Thaiwoo World Cup

Both the Gerken Schofield siblings were in hot form during the Chinese World Cup mogul events in Thaiwoo. Makayla Gerken Schofield scored her first World Cup points a week ago and finished 14th and 12th in both the single moguls and dual mogul competitions this weekend in China.

Makayla’s brother Thomas narrowly missed out on World Cup points in the men’s single moguls but scored a personal best result of 31st. This was followed up by another career-best 11th place the day after in the dual event, he was eventually knocked out by Olympic Silver Medallist Matt Graham.

Max Willis finished 26th in the single moguls event, but unfortunately both he and his brother Wil were eliminated in the first round of the dual race. 

Para Nordic: Vuokatti World Cup

The opening Para Nordic World Cup started last Wednesday with a week’s worth of events. The standout competitor so far for Great Britain is Scott Meenagh, with impressive performances in the cross country races.

The 2018 Paralympian’s best result came in the sprint where he went through qualification to finish 10th after being eliminated in the semi-finals. He also earned 12th and 13th place finishes in the short and middle distance events earlier in the week.

Steve Arnold was 11th in Saturday’s middle distance biathlon which Meenagh was forced to miss due to an equipment problem shortly before racing. The pair have two more biathlon events to come over the next two days.

With a number of athletes racing at World Cup level for the first time it has been an important week for the British Para Nordic skiers with Rachel Morris, Steve Thomas, Callum Deboys, Terry Ahrens and Jonny Huntington also featuring across the cross country events.
