Happy New Year everyone, we hope you enjoyed a nice break wherever you are were the world. The northern hemisphere season has kicked off to a strong start for our athletes and we saw some great results pre-Christmas. Here is a quick heads up on the events to watch out for in the new year!
After a well deserved summer break, Willis and Adam are back into it on the European race scene, check out the update on Adam’s blog here and an update from Willis here. There have been some event cancellations due to lack of snow however one to put in the diary to watch is The Night Race. The race is held in Schladming, Austria and is one of the classics of the ski-world cup. For the night slalom at Planai, 50,000 visitors come directly to the pistes to watch. The size of the crowd creates an electric atmosphere for racers and audience members. The race is on January 26 and both Adam Barwood and Willis Feasy will be on the start line.
