in her own words...
The Ski & Snowboard World Championships is the next "biggest" event after the Winter Olympics. It takes place every 2 years and it's where you can official be crowned "World Champion". The World Tour is a series of races all year round and at the end of the season there is an overall World Cup winner.
I'm super happy with my 14th place in the individual Snowboardcross event. This is my best result of the season and also half of my Olympic criteria met. I really enjoyed the whole experience and it being a multi sport event. The course was more technical so I'm happy I managed to perform on the bigger stage and come out in one piece! Although there is still a long way to go, this gives me confidence going forward. It was great that they showed it live on the red button back home for my friends and family to watch. All the support was amazing and really put North Wales on the map!
This year is a bit different because it's the Olympic qualifying year so there is a lot of build up for that. It is definitely on my mind but I'm keeping open minded and taking one race at a time. Especially as it's only my first season on the World tour.
Unfortunately, due to the conditions (snow, headwind & fog) and a sore knee (me) - Zoe Gillings & I pulled out of the team event in order to be fit for the last World Cup in Veysonnaz, Switzerland.
