With James having caught coach Andrew out last week on his course it was Andrews turn to set and challenge James this week. It was an interesting set with open gates followed by an on-off banana gate followed by a tight exit into couple open gates before the finish. Unfortunately for coach Andrew he challenged himself slightly too much tonight resulting in a DSQ , whilst James managed to hold it together in Run 2 and 3 to ski into 3rd position for the night. With James out of the top two the rivalry for 1st place was left to the Simpson brothers, Andrew is going to have to watch his back, with Neil skiing with a combined time of 14.69 seconds narrowly defeated by elder brother Andrew by 0.05 seconds in a time of 14.64 seconds. Slightly further down the order the family contests continued with father Gordon and son William chasing each other, tonight it was the night for the dad to show the child how it’s done with Gordon beating William by 0.3 seconds over two runs.
Another good session and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
Training is on at Alford on Sunday 4.30-6.30pm as there is no snow forecast before the weekend. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place.
