Ski racer Rhodri meets his hero

Fourteen-year-old Tarporley High School ski racer Rhodri Gale was delighted to have the opportunity of meeting his skiing hero, Europa and British Ski Champion Dave Ryding recently.
Dave ran a skiing masterclass at Rhodri’s home slope Chill Factore, Manchester, giving skiing tips and encouragement to a group of talented ski racers.
Dave is the first ever British skier to hold the European Cup title. He took part in the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver and will compete in the 2014 Sochi games. Such Such encouragement is invaluable to a young skiing hopeful, like Rhodri, who is aiming to follow in his hero’s footsteps.
