Pendle ski club race squad members Rob & Charlotte Holmes made headlines again this week following success at the English Alpine Ski Championships in Bormio.
Rob was featured on the BBC’s Newsround Program after finishing as the fastest English under 16 slalom racer and in 3rd place overall.
Not to be outdone, younger sister Charlotte stole the headlines in the Lancashire Telegraph by taking first place overall in the Combi race. This was a course on the Stella Alpina piste was made up of Giant Slalom and Slalom gates, berms and a jump, and tested all elements of technical skiing.
My favorite and the most embarrassing quote definitely goes to Charlotte who said “Before the race my brother had a chat to me and it meant I wasn’t nervous. He made me feel confident. He is definitely an inspiration, although annoying at times!”
