The course had been slightly changed from the previous years making it faster with some bigger more interesting modules which was really refreshing.

Thomas Bankes gained a top 16 place on the Saturday before being taken out in the quarter finals and on Sunday qualified with a better time but unfortunately came out of the heats in 29th position

Charlotte managed to come 1st on the Saturday and will got a 9th place on the Sunday so it turned out to be a great weekend.

Next week I will be at the first World Cup event in Europe to be held in Veysonnaz, Switzerland.
