BRITS 2015 – Boardercross

Brits day two in Tignes – and under slightly less sunny skies than yesterday we found ourselves getting ready for the Boardercross champs.

With a massive collection of titles up for grabs, and increasingly speedy conditions as the cloud cover came in, the day developed nicely in the build up to the finals.

Hurling themselves down the course four by four – the Under 12s, Under 16s, Under 18s, and Masters each had a podium to claim, as well as an Open to crown the overall champs in Men’s and Women’s groups.

Entry numbers were through the roof this year, and there’s no doubt that the resurgence in popularity of banked slalom, and a strong core of dedicated riders, contributed to there being plenty of talent on show throughout the field. But it was equally encouraging to see and feel the atmosphere as riders got ready to drop – with plenty of lively interaction between the different groups.

Max Thilding headed up things in the men’s Open to take the fastest time of the day – with Stephanie Gehrig topping the women’s table. Full podium spots and further images can be seen below.
