Andrew Musgrave impresses, Tilley close in Aspen and a great start to the season for Telemarker Jasmin Taylor

The last weekend of November produced some more exciting results from British Ski and Snowboard athletes

In Alpine Skiing, Delancey Team skier Alex Tilley competed in her first World Cup of 
the 2014/15 season in Aspen at the weekend. After skiing out in Saturday’s GS race, Tilley went on to showcase 
her fantastic form at the moment finishing 0.3 seconds off qualifying for the second run in yesterday’s Slalom.
 After the race she said “It’s going to happen one day soon. I think I know where I can make up four tenths too.”

 

British Telemark skier Jasmin Taylor had a good return to racing after injury, finishing 4th on Friday and 
7th on Saturday in the Sprint races at the Telemark World Cup in Hintertux. Over in the men’s competition,
Jasmin’s team mate Louis Hatchwell started his World Cup campaign with a 35th and 31st on Friday and Saturday respectively. 
Following the races, Jasmin said: “It feels like a solid start to the season and it’s really motivating to have a clear set
of results to work from. I’m looking forward to everything that is to come!”

British Ski and Snowboard is sponsored by Delancey www.delancey.com

Background to Principal Sponsor Delancey’s Involvement

This is Delancey’s 4th year of funding for British Ski and Snowboard, and Sir John Ritblat’s 36th year.

Just four years ago, on the eve of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, Snowsport GB 
the then National Governing Body (NGB) for British Snowsports was placed in to Administration 
and athletes already in training camps immediately prior to the games faced the prospect 
of being sent home unless a new NGB was established.

In response, the British Olympic Association stepped in and formed a temporary organisation, 
which Delancey quickly got behind. Together, they drove to create a permanent organisation with
 sound Governance and operating principles and a vision of achieving future World Cup and Olympic medals. 

Now, four years later, the Delancey backed NGB, saw nineteen athletes, who are arguably 
the strongest group of Snowsport athletes ever, deliver an unrivalled performance at the 2014 
Sochi Olympic Winter Games.
