During a recent race training camp with Dragons Alpine Racing, Chill Factore sponsored ski racer, Rhodri Gale, was invited to take part in a TV shoot with BBC One’s sports reporter Mike Bushell. Rhodri and Mike tried out the new snow scooters on offer at Chill Factore, and experienced the thrill of extreme sledging from the top of the indoor slope. This was followed by an interview which was aired on 17th August during the BBC One – Breakfast show.
14 year old Tarporley High School student, Rhodri Gale, finished the winter ski season in style with an impressive 3rd place in his age group in the slalom event at the British Alpine Championships in Meribel, France. This resulted in him being selected to take part in the next stage for the British Children’s U16 team.
Over the summer months he will be making the most of indoor ski facilities, by attending twice weekly race training sessions, in addition to having the opportunity to develop his moguls and boarder cross skills. He is looking forward to putting these skills into practice in the English Moguls Championships and several other competitions to be held over the summer, along with many other slalom racing events.
