Team Evolution complete successful camp at the English Alpine Championships, Bormio, Italy - 11th-17th February
Skiers from Team Evolution won multiple titles at the English Alpine Championships in Bormio, Italy, last week, with successes for Minis, Children and Junior athletes.
In the Minis Competition, young athletes Daisi Daniels and Toby Case performed exceptionally well to clock the fastest times in their year of birth for the Giant Slalom Competition, along with placing 4th Overall. In a close race, Daisi just missed out on placing on the Overall podium by a few hundredths of a second, further outlining her potential and increasing her hunger for the next race.
In the Children’s Competitions (aged 12-15) several Team Evolution athletes performed above expectations, with notable performances from Abi Bruce, Surrey, and Honor Clissold, Yorkshire. Despite being one of the youngest in her age group, Abi Bruce took the challenge to several more experienced racers, while British Children’s Team member Honor Clissold secured the Overall English Children’s Title. Ranked as Children’s No.1, Clissold took a 4th place in the Slalom race, 2nd place in the Giant Slalom and 1st Overall in the SuperG. Speaking afterwards, Clissold described the win as “fantastic, and really motivating to push on for more results towards the end of the season.”
In the Children boys race Jordan Lowe and Rory Dixon both pushed the boundaries with Dixon, 13, Yorkshire, scoring personal best results, whilst Josh Penning Lambert put together two clean runs to finish in the top 10, despite being a year younger than his competitors.
At the English Junior Championships all three of Team Evolutions British Junior Squad athletes scored personal best results positioning themselves ahead of their UK competitors. Darcie Mead and Max Baggio completed a clean sweep by winning the ladies and men’s Junior 1 Super G Titles to become the National Champions with Darcie also finishing 3rd overall amongst a strong International field. More success followed in the days after when Max Baggio won the Junior 1 Boys Slalom National Title, closely followed by teammate Max Moss in the runners up position.
