Sestrierre, Monday 5th August (By GO correspondent, Chris)
After a ridiculously easy qualifier where James and Chris went far too fast (Chris was top of the three heats, James 9th), the Sprint final held in the ski resort of Sestrierre was a challenge….. a challenge too far!! Chris and James both came 6th in their class. James 25 secs off leader and Chris 38 secs off leader. Chris bogged up controls 2 and 3. Day off tomorrow. Then on to the forests of the ski slopes of the Italian Alps!!
