Ashley Breese is one of the rising racers in the British ski team and has a big future ahead of him in alpine skiing. Breese has already had to overcome a few hurdles on his quest to compete at the highest level. The Croc skier is now fighting feet and ready to move up the FIS rankings.
Breese took some time out to talk to Wellsnowsports about the upcoming season!
What was your situation last season?
Last season I wasn't able to ski at all due to a knee injury, which put me out for 12 months. I was also out the season before with another knee injury.
How did the summer prep go?
My summer prep mainly consisted of just Physio and fitness after my knee operation. But I managed to come back stronger and fitter than before the injury so I would say it went quite well.
What's in store for you this season?
My race schedule seems to change all the time as different races pop up onto the calendar every day, but I will be racing at the English champs in Bormio and the British champs in Tignes to finish off the season.
What are your aims for this season?
My aim for this season is to lower my FIS points to 40 in both Slalom and Giant Slalom.
Why did you choose Croc skis?
I chose Croc skis because I had heard very good reviews about the GS skis, which I haven't skied GS for 2 and a half years I thought I would trust everyone else's review and try something different. I also managed to test some of the slalom skis, which I found was a much more stable ski to my previous SL skis.
What are your long term ambitions?
My Long term goal is to compete on the World Cup circuit and Olympic Games.
