Bridgewater’s junior skier set to join Ambition Race Team

Bridgewater pupil joins Ambition Race Team

Ten year old Allegra Turton is flying high following her invitation to join the Ambition Race Team, one of GBR’s leading alpine ski racing academies responsible for producing a number of Britain’s top alpine ski racers who have represented the GB Ski Team internationally.

Having been introduced to racing only last year, the Prep VI pupil is fast becoming a natural talent in the sport, winning two silver medals at the Ambition Pro Tour Championships in June and competing in the Under 12 category at the recent Anglo Welsh Indoor Ski Championships and British Indoor Championships.

Set to join the Ambition team at their alpine base in Tirol, Austria in October, Allegra is hoping that her new academy tuition alongside her ongoing training with the Rossendale Ski Race Club and passion for racing will hold her in good stead as she looks to the English and Welsh Championships taking place in Bormio Italy and Tignes, Frances in 2020.

With her future sights set firmly on representing Team GB at the Winter Olympics and the support of her family, friends and everyone here at Bridgewater School, we cannot wait to see what else she can achieve.

Bridgewater will not only help you to reach your goals, it will enable you to exceed them.
