Kuhtai Europa Cup Giant Slalom Races

December 18, 2010

Charlotte and Kelly take away three trophies from three races at the Europa Cup held in Kuhtai this week.

Originally the girls were going to compete in one giant slalom and one slalom event here but the IPC added an extra giant slalom race to the calendar to compensate for the canceled races in Pitztal last week.

The girls picked up third place in the first event, slalom on 16th December.

Their performance improved over the past two days with two silver places in GS on Friday and Saturday.

Both Kelly and Charlotte are very proud to have skied so well and earned three podiums in their first races. The girls are looking forward to warming up from the -30 degrees Celsius temperatures in the resort.

Sadly the girls’ first super combined races in La Molina have been postponed due to “rain in Spain”, and so due to the travel disruptions from heavy snow throughout Europe, Kelly and Charlotte are preparing to drive home to London.
Kelly will return to Northern Ireland for Christmas and New Year and the pair will meet again at the beginning of January in Serre Chevailer for a holding camp for before competing at World Championships held in Sestriere, Italy.
