last training session..season nearly over, but time to go full gas in the last races! Some mistakes here and there, but got to go for it! :)March 30, 2014 at 3:25 pm
Been in Les 7 Laux for my last French FIS Races of the sea on (x2 SL). DNFed both, but just wanted to say how great it was there. Everyone, from the kids from the local club to the lifties, were all very friendly - for a FIS Race, there were quite a large number of people watching from the sides. The organisation was incredible, they worked so hard on the piste to make sure it held well for the later bibs; and they provided a buffet for athletes, coaches, organisers and spectators. Despite not getting any results, I had a fun weekend! Next up: British Champs!March 24, 2014 at 3:42 pm
Saturday: CIT SL Villard de Lans, bib 6, 1st place, 37pts.
Sunday: CIT SL Villard de Lans, bib 15, CANCELLED
Today and Tomorrow: CIT GS...or SL...or both Villard de Lans, CANCELLED...because of too much snow!
Anyone up for some Super G training today? ;)March 24, 2014 at 3:35 pm
Since Val Cenis, I went home for 10 days, came back out, skied for a few days and then had to stop skiing because I got bursitis on my feet! But, having 12 days off gave me plenty of time to enjoy the hot weather we had. Got to put skis back on last week and instead of competing in the French Champs, I had a great time waltzing around free skiing in Meribel. To those who do the British, does this look familiar?

Patience training - really important for artistic...I mean athletic development :)February 27, 2014 at 2:56 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 2:53 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 4:17 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 6:29 pm
officially selected for World Junior Champs! Really pleased! Was a nice surprise :DFebruary 10, 2014 at 5:44 pm

Rachelle Rogers shared Team GB's photo.
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 9:20 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 1:16 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 9:20 pm
CIT SG race number 2 (World Citizen Champs) - same full team podium, lets go girls! :)February 5, 2014 at 2:16 pm
Team Podium! Cara 1st, Olivia 2nd and me 3rd! :D (yesterday's SG CIT race 1)February 4, 2014 at 5:54 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 5:41 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 7:02 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 4:52 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.
