Last night saw 45 racers brave the first real cold of the season over at Norfolk Snowsports Centre for the Ski and Boarder X.
There is always something special about night time races and this was no exception.
The first part of the evening was three individual timed runs through the course and the second half everyone was split into teams for the head to head races. This resulted in some exciting racing and action.
The British Children's Ski Team ( www.gb.juniorski.com ) are desperately aiming to raise additional funds of at least £3000.00 by the end of December 2010 in order to support the British Children's ski team at FIS International Children's ski racing events during the 2011 winter season. A raffle is being organised by the BCST and if anyone would like to donate a prize, your help would be much appreciated.
Please contact the British Children's Ski Team.
