We also saw top ten results in freestyle events for Woodsy & Katie Summerhayes (Ski Slopestyle), Jamie Nicholls & Billy Morgan (Snowboard Slopestyle) and Zoe Gillings (Snowboard Cross). Do you see this strength in depth continuing?
I would like to see more Lottery investment in Freestyle and Snowboarding, they clearly have a programme that is working and if they are given the right backing I’m sure there will be more medals to come in Pyeongchang 2018.
Our results in freestyle contrast with Alpine skiing. Chemmy Alcott and Dave Ryding performed well but they were never going to threaten the podium. Where do you see the future for British ski racing?
I think it is unfair to say that Dave and Chemmy were no threat to the podium, Alpine skiing has a much greater strength and depth than most other winter Olympic sports. Alain Baxter proved that we can win a medal in Alpine skiing, and if things had gone just a little better for Dave on the second run then a top ten result was definitely on the cards.
Did you know that Jenny Jones had custom insoles made at Profeet for her snowboard boots? Did you have custom inners and insoles when you were racing?
I started using custom footbeds towards the end of my career. The problem most racers have is that we use boots that are as small as possible, and sometimes there is not much room inside the boot for too much else. I did use to work very hard on the shells of my boots, blowing them out and grinding the heel etc.
