On Saturday the final round of the 2014 British Indoor Telemark Series was held at The Snow Centre, Hemel Hempstead.
Following three tightly contested races in Glasgow, Manchester and Tamworth the stakes were high for the Hemel final with the top races looking to take the Series title.
Races traveled from all over the UK including Team Scotland who has enjoyed a fruitful summer racing in the second British Indoor Series. The races were also well attended by members of the Forces who have started training for British Army / British Telemark Championships, which will take place in January, in the Austrian resort of Rauris.
The indoor GS combi course, set by Adrian Pery, combined 13m gates with a jump and rap (360 degree turn) followed by a short skate back up the hill to the finish.

Chief of Race, Jack Harvard Taylor commented: “The race wrapped up what has been a fantastic summer series. We’ve seen plenty of new talent emerge and I’ve also been particularly encouraged to see a number of alpine racers successfully crossing over into telemark which is great for our sport.”
Finally, British Telemark thanks Sally Bartlett, Simon Everitt and Alison and Anna Morrissey for organising this fantastic weekends racing.
