GB Alpine Skiers in World Cup Action this Weekend

GB Alpine Skiers in World Cup Action this Weekend GB Alpine Skiers Dave Ryding and Alex Tilley compete in the Slalom World Cup taking place this weekend in Levi, Finland.

Ryding will be skiing in the competition on Sunday 17th November as reigning Europa Cup Slalom Champion. This is the first race of the season for the 26 year who has already met the Olympic Qualifying Standards but will know on 22nd January 2014 if he will be competing as part of Team GB at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games next February.

Tilley is one of Great Britain’s rising stars and will be taking part in her second World Cup on Saturday. After a successful summer in the Southern Hemisphere, Tilley will be aiming to compete with the world’s best slalom skiers.

Tilley will also be skiing in next week’s Ladies Europa Cup alongside team mate Charlie Guest, both competing in the Slalom and Giant Slalom on Friday 22 and Monday 25th November. For more information on Dave Ryding, Alex Tilley and Charlie Guest visit the Team BSS website.
