British Ski Cross Team

Emily Sarsfield was back in World Cup Ski Cross action yesterday in Watles, Italy where she narrowly missed out on qualification for Saturday’s race, despite putting in an excellent performance. In her first World Cup race post injury, Sarsfield said: “"I was just looking for a good feeling, so was shocked, but really happy with the result. I was just 0.4 off qualification, and after coming back earlier than I expected to the World Cup circuit, I was going a bit into the unknown, but I was really happy with how I skied." 

Today sees the second qualification race, weather permitting, for Sunday’s finals.

After his 27th place in last weekend’s tough World Cup Slalom in Adelboden, Dave Ryding is now in Wengen for Sunday’s World Cup Slalom where he finished 25th last season. Dave is hoping to better last year’s result and solidify his standing in the world’s top 15.

Alex Tilley is racing in today’s Slalom in Flachau, Austria, and then in the GS on Sunday alongside teammate Cara Brown - her first World Cup of the season. This follows Cara’s 57th and 67th place in this week’s Europa Cup Downhills in Altenmarkt. Today’s Super G is cancelled due to the weather.
