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

Happy New Year From our British Ski Champion

Hi, I hope you had a lovely Christmas and a very Happy New Year! I know it has been a while since my last update and I have been very busy with the start of my winter season. After some brilliant training in the Autumn in Tignes, despite the lack of snow, I started my first races in November. From November until Christmas the races just haven't stopped! I pushed out the start gate 16 times in just over a month. I went from Italy, to Switzerland, Austria, Norway and France. Although I struggled to put two clean runs together in a race I was really pleased with a 2nd place finish in Val Thorens in GS and a personal best result since my knee injury that showed me I was on the right tracks. I also scored my first ever EuropaCup points in GS in Kvitfjell, Norway. Starting with bib 77 and finishing in 29th position. I finished off my Christmas races moving from bib 78 to 37th in the EuropaCup in Andalo and missing out on a podium by just 0.03 in Font Romeu in the Pyrenees.Whilst most of the start of my season has been dedicated to GS I'm looking forward to getting the long skis out in January for SG and Downhill. I have written a blog summarising my year which I would love for you to have a read!Thank you so much for your support during 2017 and I look forward to sending you lots of good news in 2018!Cara BrownBritish Ski Champion Read more
