The End Of Another One!  Cara Brown

Hi!My season has come to an end it was time to fill you in on all my results! I'm really proud of some of my performances this winter. I've found a huge amount of confidence in speed which has allowed me to score personal bests in both these disciplines and score my first ever EuropaCup points in DH. I also broke my way into the top 30 in EuropaCup GS 3 times this winter and lowered my FIS points. I competed in the World Cup Super G in Crans Montana finishing just 2.8 seconds off the leader and just over a second off the top 30 in the world. Finally I defended my Super G title at the British Championships in Tignes last week. Unfortunately my season ended a little early with a crash in Downhill last week which has left me with a small fracture in my tibial plateau. This meant I was unable to defend my Overall Female title for the 5th year in a row but I'll be back next year. Aside from lots of rest I will be back on skis in plenty of time for the summer! Thank you for all your support this winter! Read more
