Billy Major has been crowned men’s champion at the British Alpine Championship.

The Saffron Walden skier had a very successful time at the competition which was held in Tignes, France.

After podium finishes in all four disciplines – Downhill, Super G, Giant Slalom and Slalom – Billy received his trophy from Prince Edward, a supporter of British skiing.

Billy also managed to win the Victor Ludorum trophy for best overall results at the championship by a male or female skier.

“It has been a bit of a frustrating season, I had been skiing well in training but not really getting results in races,” Billy said.

“Coming into the championship I had been running into a bit of form and was happy it all came together in Tignes.”

Billy is part of the British Europa Cup squad based in Austria, where they will train this summer before the winter season begins in autumn in Europe.
