With just five days remaining until the opening FIS Telemark World Cup of the 2016/17, the British Team are making final preparations!

The races will take place in Hintertux, the only Austrian resort to offer skiing 365 days of the year, thanks to its high altitude glacier perched at 3,250m.

Bad visibility made for tough conditions on Sunday for the first of two Sprints. Following the course inspection – the start of the race was delayed by over an hour which gave the athletes time to warm up thoroughly before the race got underway.

1st Jasmin Taylor (U30)
4th Ollie Wotton (U16)
4th Jack Harvard Taylor (U30)
5th Sion Bingham (U18)
