Both Mia Brookes and Dave Ryding of Great Britain win silver medals at the World Cup.

In the men’s slalom and slopestyle World Cup competitions, respectively, Dave Ryding of Great Britain and Mia Brookes both took home silver medals.

In Kitzbuhel, Austria, Ryding improved by 13 positions and finished 0.40 seconds behind Swiss winner Daniel Yule by posting the quickest time on the second run.

Ryding, 36, exclaimed, “It feels so fantastic, the piste was amazing.”

Brookes, 16, won her first World Cup podium spot in the slopestyle event in Laax, Switzerland, by placing second.

The adolescent, who is competing in her maiden World Cup season, has earned the top qualifying slot for the championship match.

After scoring 72.66 in the first of her two runs in the final on Sunday, she went on to get a top score of 79.91.

However, Olympic slopestyle champion Zoi Sadowski-Synnott of New Zealand won the event with a personal best score of 81.30.

Brookes, whose family owns a campervan and lives in Sandbach, Cheshire, divides her time between that location and the Swiss Alps. She was too young to compete in World Cup slopestyle events last season and was unable to attend the Beijing Winter Olympics due to her age.
