Ryding claims 15th in FIS World Cup Finals

Dave Ryding rounded off his World Cup season in style, taking 15th in the Slalom at the prestigious FIS World Cup Finals in St Moritz.

Today’s result cements Ryding as one of the world’s top 15 Slalom skiers and completes a fantastic World Cup season, which included a World Cup Slalom 12th place finish in Val d’Isere and a 13th in Santa Caterina.

Ryding will now race in the Delancey British National Alpine Ski Championships which started today in Tignes.

Dave Ryding said after today’s race:

“I believed I could get into the top 15. I have been skiing well and I knew I could do it and I am just over the moon.

Both courses were high speed but really fun to ski. I knew they were both courses where I had to just let things go.

The Delancey British Champs will be my last competition of the season and then it will be a full summer of training. I am not going to worry about what everyone else is doing and just concentrate on my own performance and condition.

If you had told me I would get top 15 in the World Cup Finals before the start of the season I definitely would have taken it. I have achieved my goals for the season and for me it is definitely ‘job done’ in terms of the World Cup.

I now hope I can round it off with a win at the Delancey British Champs and finish on a high.”
