Tilley set to launch into World Cup campaign in Austria

The Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea are now less than four months away, and that target gets even closer this weekend when the opening Alpine event of the FIS Ski World Cup takes place in Sölden, Austria.

The Ladies’ and Men’s Giant Slalom will be staged on Saturday and Sunday respectively, with Alex Tilley representing the Delancey British Alpine Team in the Ladies’ event.

Tilley has raced on the World Cup circuit since 2013 with her best result last season being 20th in the World Cup Slalom in Squaw Valley in March. The reigning Delancey British Alpine Giant Slalom Champion will be eyeing off a strong start to the competition season.

Live coverage of the FIS Ski World Cup from Sölden is available on Eurosport from 8:45am on Saturday and Sunday.

For the GB Park and Pipe team, the Big Air World Cup will now start a week later than expected following this week’s cancellation of the Copenhagen event originally scheduled for Saturday 4 November. The event was cancelled yesterday, with the first leg of the World Cup now set to take place the following week in Milan, Italy.
