Saul Biggs Done Well!

  Updated 27th Mar

Saul Biggs has been a LSERSA Racer since age 10 and turned 16 in August 2014. He has recently taken a 10-week Base Camp programme for BASI Level 1 & 2, including a trip to Meribel in December for training and assessments. In doing so he became the youngest ever Base Camper that they have trained to this level.

Saul was informed last week that he has successfully completed and passed both his BASI Level 1 & 2 instructors qualifications. He now plans to gain his performance coaching level 1 & 2 later this summer.

WELL DONE SAUL!

Important Notice to ALL Racers
Due to the quantity of unsportsmanlike behaviour at dry slope races following gate faults, ranging from carrying on to cross the Finish Line, swearing, and pole abuse, all TDs & Race Organisers have been reminded that sanctions are to be applied if behaviour contravenes competition rules. Please be aware that this could ultimately lead to the sanction of 'suspension from events' (ICR 223.3.2).

If you know of any LSERSA skier who has done well anywhere, or have any other news that is suitable for publication here, please email Dom Wakeling.


Skiing

It's ecstasy, anguish, joy and despair.
It's part of our history.
It's part of our country and will be part of our future.
It's theatre, art, war and love.
It should be predictable, but never is.
It's a feeling that can't be explained but we spend our lives explaining it.
It's our religion. We do not deny it, we do not apologise for it.
 
We know how you feel about it because we feel the same.
