Christmas Break

Having missed most of the Christmas break last season due to a GB race off for World Cup positions, it was great to be home for a longer period this time round.

I apologise for the lack of updates on the blog, it’s just that when I go back home, it’s important to be able to switch off from skeleton so that I come back to the ice fresh.  The physical training still goes ahead as we have half a season still to go, and the chance of competing at the Olympics 😉

I received the news that I was staying on the World Cup circuit for the 2nd half of the season, which means I’m competing in the last 3 races in Konigssee (Germany), St. Moritz (Switzerland) and Igls (Austria).

I’m now in Konigssee, first day of training starts tomorrow with the race on Friday 8th January.

  1. Hope you enjoyed and benefited from the Christmas break, Andrew. It’s good keeping up with your news on your blog – really appreciated.

    Saw you on Ski Sunday 3 January, just a fleeting glimpse; you were labelled as the ‘newcomer’. Adam Pengilly was interviewed on Songs of Praise too; seems a real nice guy.

    Anyway, we are thinking of you lots and wish you a very Happy and Healthy New Year as well as every good fortune in your forthcoming races in preparation for your trip to Vancouver in February . . .!! Bon chance!
