ES Adaptive Manager, Sam Colby and keen snowboarder, Izzi Lock competed in the Verbier Hi-Five event last Saturday. The pair were in a Mountain Man Bi-ski and were the only adaptive participants. They raced in all the categories involving a Skier Cross, Speed Trap and Giant Slalom. Also competing in the event were some famous faces from the snowsports and music industries, including the likes of Didier Cuche, Tina Mazé, Didier Défago, Fränzi Aufdenblatten, Adrien Théaux, Tina Weirather, Alex Fiva, Sanna Lüdi and James Blunt!
The day was a success and went extremely well, although unfortunately the pair did not win any of the categories! They came 116th overall! A party was held at the Carlsverg resuaturnt in the afternoon with the girls ACDC tribute band, Back:N:Black and plenty of delicious food and drink. Later, a Mega Party was held in resort at Pub Mont Fort with the Pros serving yet more drinks and food.
The final results and images are due to be posted shortly on the official Carlsberg Hi-Five website but for now a huge congratulation to both Sam and Izzi!
Well Raced ES Adaptive!!
