First World Cup Points for Alex Tilley

J2SkiNews posted Dec-2015

Delancey British Alpine Team athlete Alex Tilley has claimed a top 20 finish and 12 World Cup points, finishing 19th after the second run in the World Cup Giant Slalom in Lienz, Austria.

After a frustrating start to the season for Tilley, from Aberdeenshire in Scotland, where she has been skiing well but not managing to pin down a result, the Scot rose from joint 27th in run one to 19th, after some impressive splits at the top (second fastest) and at the bottom (fifth fastest).

"I wanted it. I got to the bottom of the first run and thought I have got so much more to give, but recently, every time I try and step it up, it kind of goes a bit backwards," Tilley told Racer Ready, adding,

"But for the second run, I had so much more confidence after my first run, so to push it out there and get that consistency back, it is a very good feeling,"

Tilley raced again today in the World Cup Slalom in Lienz but unfortunately did not qualify for the second run.

It was the second top 30 finish for British team Alpine racers in World Cup events following Dave Ryding's 24th place finish in last week's World Cup Slalom in Madonna di Campiglio.

Ryding is back in action next week, in the Zagreb-Sljeme World Cup Slalom on 6th January.
