English Alpine Champs 2019 – Day 5

The sound of crisp, early-morning snow under booted foot was a fitting soundtrack as the English Alpine Championships reached its crunch on the fifth day of racing in Bormio. Stella Alpina has been a forest of humanity in recent days and that only continued with slalom for the U14s and U16s, final races offering the chance to make a lasting impression.

English Alpine Champs 2019 – Day 4

Every single skier at this year’s English Alpine Championships was on piste thanks to a monumental effort from all involved in Bormio. There wasn’t a piece of powder left unturned across Stelvio and Stella Alpina - whether you were Nicole Ritchie in her ninth FIS season or an under-10 transfixed by sights and sounds. And once again the weather didn’t let anyone down, the week’s first clouds flitting into the skyline but failing to at any stage obscure a sublime scene. Appropriately, it was the best day of the Championships so far for Brits in FIS racing.

English Alpine Champs 2019 – Day 3

Roles were reversed on day three in Bormio as senior racers took on Stelvio and ski lifts full of smiles climbed onto Stella Alpina in the shape of the U10s and U12s. Pure pace was also on the agenda as competition sponsors Vitalini ran a popular speed test on Stelvio, assessing the ability of youngsters to tuck and fly down the slope. Course conditions remained exceptional – a slight drop in temperature over the last 24 hours making for sumptuous skiing and a challenging setting on Stelvio testing the best.

Marc Telling’s outfit claimed victory in the night parallel, with outstanding individual displays from Katie Stuart, Lois Jackson and Sophie Foster making it a day to remember for those in light blue. Ambition’s A team, consisting of Foster, Arthur Bartlett, Ryan Pye, Gregor Munro and Kaylan Huisman took the spoils in three hours of head-to-head drama in the team event.
