Menna Fitzpatrick Season Highlights

April 24, 2017

Visually impaired Alpine racer, Menna Fitzpatrick has gone from strength to strength over the past two seasons. She had a phenomenal 2015/16 winter and despite some serious injury setbacks, built upon this success for 2016/17. 

Menna Season Lowdown.png

Coming off the back of becoming Overall World Cup Champion 2016 in her first year of international racing, it was always going to be a big challenge to maintain that level in her second year. With early season preparations going well, Menna took a high speed fall (50mph plus) in Super G training resulting in a broken hand which resulted in an operation. Not what a racer needs at the start of the season!

Luca Season 2016-17 2.JPG

"My pre-season training started in October for two weeks on the Hintertux glacier, where I competed in the first of the Valley Ralley Tour events placing third. The park was really good and it consisted of two kickers and a rail, I enjoyed this set up, my run was a backside 360 melon grab into the cannon rail with a big air out. I spent November at home back in school before heading back out to Austria in December for the second Valley Ralley Tour at Kaltenbach. Again, it was two kickers and a rail, unfortunately I didn't have a clean run so I didn't podium but placed fourth.
