English Ski Cross Team

Just a quick News Flash & a big thank you for supporting the " newly formed " English SX Squad who had their 1st Team event this weekend at Hoch -YBrig.

It was highly successful " Team Event" coached and managed by Mike Hammond and Andy Proudlove.

Briefly the Team did really well and I was really pleased with their performances overall.

On Saturday Ross Hammond - Qualified for the 1/8 final in the time trial getting a credible 52.85 sec and coming 27th overall. His younger brother Max Hammond just missed qualifying for the 1/8 final coming 34th with a time of 54.21.

Michael Brain did well attending his 1st International Sx Cross with an excellent time of 1m.02 sec.

The Ladies team of Joanna Llewellyn , Claire Wheatman & Dannielle Freeze all did well and Qualified with excellent times , but the " Piste de la excellence" was that Danni Freeze came a highly credible 4th in the Final with a time of 1m 03.99 sec.

But then on Sunday -- " The Team excelled themselves and upped their Game" with Max Hammond coming 20th and Qualifying for the 1/8 final with a superb 53.63 sec time , followed by his elder brother who came 22nd with another superb 54.00 sec. Michael Brain also did well coming 47th with a time of 1m 01.48 sec

The Ladies also did well coming in 10th ( Danni F) 11th ( Jo L) & 12th for Claire W , all qualifying for the 1/4 finals .

Thank you once again for all your support and assistance and lets hope we can raise more funding on the back of this success.

If you know of how we can raise more funds and support for this Team , you never know we start beating the Swiss at their own game particularly if we can start getting some training in on proper SX courses.

Thank you to Andy Proudlove for the report.
