Wednesday, May 10th

We follow a format on a Wednesday where the first part of the session is focused on a particular aspect of improving our performance. We then use that in the gates to see if the racers can transfer it into their skiing.

The racing is always close and each skier has their own target of who they are chasing and looking to take points from.

Exam timetables allowed some of our senior members to attend last night and it was great to see them having some relief from studying for a couple of hours. If they were that high last night, I can only imagine what the session after the exams are finished will be like.

Top honour for the girls went to Rachel Morrison, Rachel showed great form in the gates last night with consistent and accurate runs. Sophie R worked hard last night and was rewarded with fantastic improvement in her last run, taking 0.11 seconds off her best time.

Welcome James Gask, who raced for the first time in the Wednesday League. The coaches were keeping a keen eye on his improvements last night.

The competition for the boys was close as ever . Thanks to the senior racers for putting on a great show for the new and young racers last night. Ollie and Andrew S were in great spirits and skiing very well, keeping their skis firmly on the mat and putting their new Body Management skills to effective use.

Let me know if you have any special (training) requests for Sunday and we’ll see if we can work it into the plan.
