Charlotte Bankes, Youth French Team

D.O.B. 10/06/1995

This is the first year that I am competing at European level in boarder-cross and I train with the Ecrins Snowboard Club and the French Federation. With the Team we visit about 6 countries per year in which we do around 20 competitions.

I also do a few free-ride competitions, the last two seasons I won twice the “Defi de la Plagne” in Montgenevre in Women.

I will be competing in the Europeen Youth Olympic Games this year in Liberec (Czech Republic) where I hope to come in the top 5.

Until last year I also competed at a national level in Skiing but stopped to focus on snowboarding.

Best Results

French Championship: 1st woman 2010

British Championship: 1st Woman 2010

European Cup: 2nd place in Puy St Vincent 2011, 4th in Cortina 2010.

Objectives for year 2010/2011:

This year I have three goals:

Firstly I want to be in the top three youths in the French and European cup circuit;

Secondly come in the first ten overall (including adults) in the French Championship;

Last but not least come in the top 5 of the Europeen  youth Games;
