In the Ladies' 10km Classic, Annika Taylor finished in 58th position.

GB Park and Pipe

In qualification at the Slopestyle World Cup Finals in Silvaplana, Switzerland, Izzy Atkin qualified in 4th place, meaning she progresses to Saturday’s finals. Katie Summerhayes narrowly missed out on finals, finishing in 9th place, with Madi Rowlands just behind her in 11th position. In the Men’s competition, James ‘Woodsy’ Woods didn’t make it to finals after a crash in qualifiers, and despite not making finals, there were solid performances from Tyler Harding, Cal Sandieson and, in his first ever World Cup, Mike Rowlands.

Katie Ormerod finished 12th in the Burton US Open in Vail, Colorado after an unfortunate fall in her second run during qualification, leaving her outside qualification for the finals which will feature six riders.
