Snow to Sun

Apologies for the delay in this update, I have been distracted back home enjoying summer activities!

I finished the season off with a high at the ‘Red Bull Kronplatz Ski Cross’ where I placed 3rd in Team International, behind France and Switzerland. This was definitely the craziest race I have competed in with horrendous snow conditions, very limited lighting for a night time race and a huge crowd watching the exciting Ski Cross action. Being a Red Bull event, the athletes were looked after very well. We were accommodated in a luxury 5 Star Hotel and the impressive after-party event made for a good send off in Europe before the long flight home.

My last Audi FIS SX World Cup race of the season was at Kreischberg, Austria. I continued my improving form at the end of season by qualifying for the finals again. The race started well with some close racing and jostling of positions. Coming into the last turn, with 3 of us neck and neck, I went for a risky move to hopefully progress through to the next round but it did not pay off and unfortunately I had a big crash sending me straight into multiple layers of safety netting!

Hopefully everyone managed to watch parts of the Olympics in Sochi, the Ski Cross made for exciting racing action as my friends battled it out and provided some crazy entertainment.

I made some huge strides this year, it was one of my most enjoyable seasons yet, with once again huge learning curves. It was great to see how far I have come with being competitive in my last 2 World Cups of the season and getting on the podium for Red Bull Kronplatz.

Want to say a huge thanks to my biggest supporters; Mum and Dad, my amazing sponsors and all their great gear, family/ friends, the Australian SX team and everyone else’s support, even a ‘Like’ on my page helps me feel the support and make me feel more than a one person team!

I am back at University full time this semester and will be finishing my degree this June!
