Manchester Festival and race!

The first event of the 2016 Indoor Telemark series kicked off in Manchester. Sadly there were less racers due to other commitments but we had 40 people at the festival on Saturday.

A huge thanks to the Manchester Cross Country Ski Club for organising a fantastic festival. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the instruction and the race training. BASI provided a telemark instructor for the day who was James Bennet, a former international ski racer!

GB team members Jasmin Taylor and Sion Bingham fought it out at the top for first place on race day. Attached are the results and below is the top 5:

  1. Sion Bingham
  2. Jasmin Taylor
  3. Allan Stevenson
  4. Nick Henderson
  5. Pat Mitchell

Next stop Tamworth for the second festival!
