Over in the Czech Republic, Children’s Races took place over the 23rd and 24th January.

The weather quietly deteriorated through the two race days with rising temperatures and some snow. However, conditions remained good on the piste. The new feature  at the event this year was the winners’ enclosure, and over the two days each of the athletes managed to spend some time in the limelight! This was a very much appreciated addition to the professional World Cup style finish area.

Huge congratulations go to Josh Galmarini on securing a 3rd and a 4th position. There were also great results for Megan Riley, Joe Christey and Charlie Luke who all gained top 10 podium positions.
