International Racing





The Australian Team joins the World Cup circuit this weekend in Davos with a full contingent of athletes after strong early season races. Leading the way are Jessica Yeaton, fresh from her first Swiss Cup victory in Goms, Barbara Jezersek who has had two top 10’s in the Visma Ski Classics series, and Phillip Bellingham who narrowly missed the Swiss Cup Sprint A-final and was top 10 in the 15km Classic last weekend.

@jjyeaton starts off the season with a BANG! Second in qualification and first in the final here in Goms, Switzerland! #winning #pathtopyeongchang #racing
