There are fresh faces and returning veterans for the British Telemark squads for 2021/22 season.
British Telemark hopes will be represented by an eight-strong World Cup squad and a seven-strong FIS squad.
Last season’s A Squad of Sion Bingham, Colin Dixon, Ben Emsley, Louis Hatchwell, Jasmin Taylor, and Jasper Taylor will be joined by Alec Dixon (former B Squad member) and new member Timoté Gough in an expanded World Cup Squad.
Last season’s B Squad and C Squad members, Louis Blyth, Sissi Compton, Jack Emsley, Harry Fletcher, Robbie Houston, Magnus McIntosh, and Bonnie Price will form a new combined FIS team.
Jasmin Taylor had fifth place finishes in Classic and Spring at the World Ski Championships in Melschee-Frutt.
“I’m excited to be part of a really strong British squad heading into the new season,” said Jasmin Taylor.
“It’s great to share this experience with such a talented group of athletes and it helps us all to push and find the next level.
“That motivation that is going to be important for us over the next year.”
British Telemark skiers will face an intensive autumn training programme ahead of the winter race schedule.
“After a heavily covid-impacted season for our Telemark skiers last year, it’s really positive to be able to name such a deep and talented pair of squads for the year ahead,” said Adrian Pery, GB Snowsport Telemark Committee lead.
“Every athlete selected has shown real commitment to their sport over the past twelve months, and every one of them is hugely deserving of their chance to represent the country this season.”
The 2021/22 Telemark season is scheduled to get underway in December in Hintertux, Austria.
