This January the Regiment returned to St Moritz in Switzerland to tackle the Cresta Run. The team consisting of Capt Pryor, Lt Nicholson and LCpls Selcraig and Roberts, would take on the 1200m ice run, reaching speeds of up to 70mph, should they make it safely round the infamous Shuttlecock corner! The officers were the first pair out, with Lt Nicholson taking beginner’s day in his stride and Capt Pryor looking to retain his place in the Army team.
The two LCpls joined for the second week and had to learn fast as they only had four days of practice before the Army Junction Championships would take place. There were three trophies up for grabs; the Novice Cup (best beginner), the Junction Handicap and the 17th/21st Lancer’s Cup (Pairs open race). If the riders could stay in the run they would have a good shot at coming away with some silverware, however, crash and they're out!
