the second major alpine weekend of the season saw billy major return to the slopes, and charlie raposo take home the first world cup points of his career
Despite missing out on the knock-out round by just 3/100ths of a second, Charlie Raposo’s promising start to the season continued with a 17th place finish in the Parallel Giant Slalom World Cup race in Lech / Zuers, Austria. The result, which saw Raposo bank the first World Cup points of his career, came after he shaved an enormous 25 places off his previous visit to Lech / Zuers in November 2020.
Fellow Alpine World Cup squad member, Billy Major, experienced his first taste of Parallel GS at World Cup level coming in in 49th position, with a net time of 47.54.
The next races in the Alpine calendar will see Charlie Guest compete at the Levi World Cup on the weekend of 20-21 November, while the Cross Country season gets underway with FIS races in Beitostolen, Norway, from 19-21 November. The Freestyle Snowboard squad will be in Europa Cup action in Landgraaf, Netherlands on 19 November, while the Freeski World Cup in Stubai gets underway on the same day.
