Patience training - really important for artistic...I mean athletic development :)February 27, 2014 at 1:56 pm
Sestriere European Cup Slalom - only just got round to uploading my camera photos! I now have the technology to make it happen...a USB key!February 27, 2014 at 1:53 pm
Went home for a week. Came back out and had a great day of Super G training. The sun was shining, the snow was fresh and the course was full length. It's not often I get to train SG, so today was special :)February 15, 2014 at 3:17 pm
Val Cenis FIS SL: Try a flat slope (for the first 20 gates) and huge gusts of wind. Scored a solid 55 points after a catastrophic 2nd run (stopped 3 times...) and an average 1st run. On the plus side a bad race for me is one where I score the same points as a good race last year = progress! And I provided onlookers some quality entertainment when I went to the van after the race, which involved me nearly begin blown over and making a run for it when there was no wind.February 11, 2014 at 5:29 pm

Team GB's 1st medal at Sochi Winter Olympics. Hard work and perseverance are totally worth it! Well done Jenny! And good luck to Katie Summerhayes on Tuesday who was part of Team GB at Innsbruck Winter Youth Olympics with me in 2012. Go girl! :)February 7, 2014 at 8:20 pm
World CIT Champs SL - 1st win of the season, 7th podium. Clean first run, handbreak on 2nd run; but not a bad day's work for me, considering I was ill and was finding 40 seconds of SL tiring. Time for a rest to recharge and be ready for a full week of training :)February 6, 2014 at 12:16 pm
Unfortunately, I could not complete the GS race today, I did the 1st run, but I'm ill, and it was really hard to ski. I decided it would be best to rest. Bad timing for being ill, but sometimes these things happen.February 5, 2014 at 8:20 pm
CIT SG race number 2 (World Citizen Champs) - same full team podium, lets go girls! :)February 5, 2014 at 1:16 pm
Team Podium! Cara 1st, Olivia 2nd and me 3rd! :D (yesterday's SG CIT race 1)February 4, 2014 at 4:54 pm
Apparently I did a Downhill today, must have been a dream... ;)
I did however do 2 CIT SGs, I came 3rd in both. Pretty pleased, I got 2 finishes now. Just aiming to keep SG ticking over whilst I ski my new 40m skis in, need to make them fast!February 2, 2014 at 4:41 pm
CIT Combloux: yesterday was really not great at all, just wasn't in the mood for racing. Today was very entertaining! I did the 1st run, tried to go 100% all the way down. I ended up falling over on 3rd to last gate. It took me a while to process what had happened. Once I did, I got back up, walked round the gate and finished - 8.5 secs slower than the fastest time, I came 63rd...out of 70 who finished So new goal of the day: score sub 100. I had a 2nd run CHARGE into 25th place, scoring a solid 91.56 points!! Goal achieved (forgot to add, I won 2nd run :) )January 29, 2014 at 6:02 pm
Got some really good photos of me skiing today at Sestriere: http://www.rachellerogers.co.uk/index.php/2014/01/29/ladies-ski-club-update-december-january-europa-cup/ (I decided to dress up in a baby deer costume :P )January 29, 2014 at 3:52 pm
Bucket list: First Europa Cup - done! (with a nice straddle, losing my ski and a hip slide down the pitch on Italian TV!). I've still got 'L' plates on injected snow.January 26, 2014 at 2:24 pm

Amazing!! Well done Chemmy!!! Hard work does pay off :)January 17, 2014 at 12:13 pm
Les Menuires University Race GS podium with my team mates: Marine (1st) and Cara (2nd). Was great to have Natalia (3rd) there too. 3 GBR girls in the top 5! :DJanuary 17, 2014 at 11:36 am
Being a geographer, I wanted to know why the UK has been getting bad weather and why the alps are experiencing warmer temperatures than normal. I'm studying an online course with the University of Exeter and discovered this incredible map!!January 15, 2014 at 3:47 pm
I've been busy recently, so haven't had the time to post. So here's a short update:
4th and 5th Jan: raced GS and SL in Val D'Isere. Really didn't have a great time because I had various things on my mind and wasn't focused on the race at all. DNFed GS, scored 42 in SL, which is pretty good considering I certainly didn't ski my best.
6th Jan: raced at Scottish FIS racing in Chamonix in some interesting conditions :P It was fun, as it was a night slalom. Skied well on sections of both runs, did a bit of ballet on 1st run and got my pole caught between my legs somehow. But scored a solid 42 again.
11th and 12th Jan: 2 CIT races in Les Menuires. Straddled in the SL (a first for me this season) and got a confidence boosting 4th in the GS, won myself a boquetin shaped trophy :) The 2nd run was interesting as it was set 31m right until the end where it suddenly went to 26m! Caught quite a few people out...
14th: FIS SL in Orcieres, came out...(lost my balance). 2nd run was interesting to watch as the fog closed in and was very thick for last 7 racers. Interestingly only 1 of them did well on 2nd run. Just goes to show how everything can change on 2nd run!
15th: FIS SL in Chaillol. Had a safe 1st run (kind of just wanted to get down to build confidence :) ), but skied solid and much better than the previous day. Went for it 2nd run and skied very well but hit my helmet on a gate, displacing my goggles, so I couldn't see properly. Then did some impressive acrobatics at the bottom where I lost a lot of time, it was a section where you could really pick up speed but I decided to show off my artistic side and good recovery skills instead. Considering it was a 'bad' day for me, scoring 46 is definitely positive! Sometimes times don't always reflect how you ski!December 25, 2013 at 2:36 pm
Merry Christmas everybody! Hope you are all having a good day!December 22, 2013 at 4:20 pmDecember 20, 2013 at 2:48 pm
Raced in La Plagne today against some tough competition. It was a good experience racing against some WC and EC girls from several countries. And I'm pleased to say, it's official, I'm part of the sub-40 FIS points club! http://data.fis-ski.com/dynamic/results.html?sector=AL&competitorid=163797&raceid=76124
