ESSKIA regional rounds, Gloucester
CLC had a very successful day of racing at the ESSKIA regional rounds in Gloucester on Sunday 11th September. The U14 and U16 Teams won, and the U19 Team finished 3rd. We were delighted to learn that the U14 and U19 Teams had qualified for the National Finals in Norwich.
ESSKIA National Finals, Norwich
On Friday 4th October we travelled to Norfolk, and having arrived at our hotel, quickly settled to sleep ready for our early start.
The U14s were up first and raced brilliantly, improving second run times; we were delighted with a 6th place finish. The U19s also raced clean and put down some very solid first runs, with very little separating each of the CLC Team. Everyone improved their second time, with Sonya smashing hers by over a second to record the fastest run of the day. The team were placed 5th overall, and with three girls in the team aged just 15 we were delighted.
This was our first time to National Finals and we are immensely proud of both the results and the girls' attitude and effort.
BISS Racing Indoor Championships, Hemel Hempstead Snow Centre
On 30th September, at the BISS Racing Indoor Championships, there were some very impressive individual results, and the girls enjoyed racing on snow. Alex finished joint 2nd and Nicole 9th in the U16 category; Tessa finished 11th in the U14 race with two very consistent times.
