Newthorpe freestyle slope skiing star Bradley Fry has been adding to his ever-growing medal collection thanks to recent successes in various national competitions.
The ten-year-old has enjoyed great success in recent years both in this country and abroad, often competing against skiers much older than him.
And that trend has continued. Back in May, Bradley won the U12s Kendal K-Jam slope style event in the Lake District and also won the best style overall in all age groups.
On June 6th he won the U12s English slope style championship at Manchester’s Chillfactore for the second year running and was one of the top 12 skiers to make the overall finals, the first time he’d achieved the feat and where he would again compete against older children and even adults.
He proceeded to up his game in the final, finishing sixth overall.
Bradley then travelled to Glasgow on June 20th for Bearsden’s GoBigOrGoHome Jam which is the biggest dry slope competition in the UK and has lots of local riders skiing at very high standards.
Bradley came third in the U13s category, despite being up to three years younger than the competitors that finished first and second.
Following his win at the English championships, Bradley was selected to continue as a sponsored athlete by the Chillfactore in Manchester, and has been selected to join the Snowsports England Home Nations Academy for Park & Pipe, ensuring he’s on the right path for a future in slope style skiing.
He will be going to Cervinia in Italy in August for a two-week coaching course with the British Freeski Camps where he will be working on all aspects of slope style skiing.
Bradley wishes to thank his sponsors Faction Skis, Planks Clothing, Butta, Chillfactore and DWLS Heavy Lifting and Rigging, as well as Nottinghamshire County Council and Broxtowe Borough Council for their support.
Bradley and his family are looking for sponsorship towards getting him to the mountains of Europe more often as well as further UK events. If you would be interested in sponsoring Bradley then email firstname.lastname@example.org.
