King’s College ski racer Will Cashmore has capped off his debut season of racing in the Northern Hemisphere with a Under-14 Super G race win in the USA Far West Speed finals held at Mammoth Mountain, California.

Will placed second in both Super G races on Saturday as he worked up to Sunday’s final race where the young New Zealander took out the top podium spot.

This wasn’t Cashmore’s first speed series success in the United States. He finished second at the Under-14 Far West Championships Super G race held at Squaw Valley in March. Training with the Sugarbowl Academy youth racers in California was a perfect build up to the Whistler Cup races in Canada earlier this month where he skied to a tenth place in both Slalom and Grand Slalom Under-14 Whistler Cup races.

“Being part of the New Zealand crew at Whistler was a real buzz and I’m stoked to finish my American visit with a win today, the young Kiwi enthused, its been an amazing trip training and racing with these guys up here. Thanks to Mum and Dad for making it all happen for me.”

For now it’s back to New Zealand and King’s until the winter and the New Zealand Youth Series kicks off again.
