LOOK WHO WE'VE BUMPED INTO!
Monday June 26, 2017 - Email this article to a friend

Our editor is in Les2Alpes for summer skiing & by chance staying at the same hotel as GB's No1 ski cross racer, Emily Sarsfield.

The two have a history of bumping into each other as they criss-cross the mountains.

James is in the resort reporting on what is on offer in the summer and the resort's new Outdoor Festival.

Emily is training with the GB X team and relishing the new funding and structures put in place by British Ski & Snowboard. 

The two had a quick poolside chat.

Emily is also now sponsored by ABC Contractors #TeamABC. 

And a BIG thanks to the GB team member, 20 year old Masie Potter, who shot the video on James's I-phone.

She is an up and coming snowboard X athlete and one to look out for.  

As is his way James grabbed the nearest person he could find, thrust the phone into their hand, told them how to shoot it and when to press the red button!
