Ryding reaches World Cup Finals

After Dave Ryding's 24th place finish in Sunday's World Cup Slalom in Kransjka Gora, it was confirmed he had qualified for the FIS World Cup Finals in St Moritz. After competing in all 2nd runs of the Slalom World Cups this season, it is a huge achievement for the Delancey British Ski Team athlete. 

Ryding's reaction after realising he had made the finals:

"I have achieved something more than I ever dreamt of as a child. It was an incredibly proud moment realising I had made it to the World Cup Finals!

I wasn't very satisfied with how I managed to ski on the 2nd run, (In Kransjka Gora) but the goal for the day was to make the 30 and make it to the finals, so I was happy to achieve that.

It has been an incredible season and to take part in every single 2nd run of the World Cup Slalom series this season says a lot... I didn't always get my best skiing out there but I was always there to give it a go. 

The great thing is I now get another shot and the 2016 World Cup circuit continues for myself to St Moritz. 

There are so many people I have to thank for putting me in a position to achieve this, from my family, coaches, sponsors, team sponsors and all those who work behind the scenes, I feel I am just the tip of the arrow and these people make everything possible." 

The World Cup Finals Men’s Slalom takes place on Sunday 20 March.
