Dave Ryding will attempt to qualify for his fourth Tokyo Olympic after he was named on the elite Alpine skiing squad for the 2020 to 2021 season by GB Snowsport. The 33-year-old slalom specialist is set to compete in his 11th International Ski Federation World Cup campaign.

Ryding will be hoping to better his results from the 2019 to 2020 World Cup season, where he recorded a best finish of seventh. He was ninth in the slalom at the 2019 Alpine Ski World Championships and has the best World Cup result of second, achieved at the city event in Oslo last January.
England team for the upcoming campaign, which marks the start of qualification for the Tokyo Olympic, also contains Laurie Taylor, Alex Tilley, and Charlie Guest. Taylor will be participating in the World Cup circuit for the fifth season in a row and will aim to secure a place at Tokyo Olympic. Tilley and Guest will be looking to qualify for their second Tokyo Olympic.
Homan, Wilkes, and Courtney all live in Alberta, but can still signify Ontario as Homan, Wilkes and third Emma Miskew were all born in the sphere. It’s debatable whether this move makes Team Homan better on paper, but it’s obvious the rink out of the Ottawa Club feels like it does. We’ll have to wait and watch if they’re correct.
“We are delighted to name a solid team for the season across both World Cup and Europa Cup events,” GB Snowsport chief executive Vicky Gosling said. This is a crucial season as athletes look to secure qualification for the Beijing 2022 Games and we are hopeful that the squad we have selected, aided by our outstanding coaching staff, can deliver great results.”
