Baldwin wins British Super-G

The man from Norwich successfully defended the Super G title he won on the same Meribel piste last year.

"Today was just about making sure I got on the top step of the podium. I did enough and so I am happy. And it is nice to make back-to-back titles now hopefully I can do it in the downhill as well.

"It is always great to be at the British Champs. Now here I am one of the older guys, the one the younger guys are gunning for and hoping to take down, and so that is a nice challenge."

The 22-year-old posted a time of 1:22.88 to finish 35 hundredths ahead of Lancashire's Bradley Morgan, with Roy-Alexander Steudle from Ascot just over one second behind in third place.

Alex Tilley won the women's Super-G, following up on her Giant Slalom triumph last year.

Aberdeen's Tilley lead a 1-2 for Scottish racers as Perthshire's Charlotte Guest finished runner-up, 1.13 seconds behind.

"I am pretty happy, though I messed up in a couple of places, but it was quite a technical course, but it worked out well for me. I am not going to lie, when I finished I was not really sure how my time would be," she said.

"I have never been much of a speed skier, but my Super G is coming along well. But I have not done very much downhill so we will just have to see how that goes over the next few days. I am really enjoying it though."
