Six elite athletes chosen to represent Great Britain on the world stage at one of the toughest, physically demanding winter sports.

The British Telemark Ski Team today announced the six world-class athletes who will be competing at the 2010/11 Telemark World Cup.

Selection took place in Hintertux, Austria during the last weekend of August. With a large turn-out the participants were put through their paces navigating their way down the steep, icy terrain on the glacier. Vice Team Captain Chris Wotton said, “Despite the difficult conditions and problems with timing equipment, all the trialists performed well over the four days” With minus 15C on the glacier and high winds, participants fought hard against the elements as they battled it out for a place on the national team.

The 2010/11 British Telemark World Cup Team consists of the following six athletes:

Andrew Clarke – Plymouth, Devon
Jack Harvard Taylor – Virginia Water, Surrey


The team will be taking part in a series of promotional events around the UK. They will be promoting the sport whilst working with lead sponsor Mercedes – Benz UK before the competitive season kicks-off in January with the first World Cup event held in Germany. With an impressive last season the team hopes to build on that, with athletes achieving consistent top 25 results. Other confirmed FIS (Federation International du Ski) World Cup venues are Switzerland, Norway and Spain. “With telemark skiing on the up this is an exciting time for the British Team as we look to introduce the sport into the Winter Olympics in the future” said recently appointed FIS Telemark Chairman and British Team Captain, Andrew Clarke.
