London Ski Show 2008

he Metro Ski Show, held at Kensington Olympia during late October, puts on display all that is skiing in the UK and worldwide.

Putney Chiropractic Centre was invited back to look after the young athletes who put their bodies on the line for the crowd’s viewing pleasure. We were provided a private booth in the upstairs Riders Environment to keep the riders in great shape and repair some of the injuries they’ve been carrying through the summer.

Top talent on the table
On the table were most of the top 10 UK free skiers. Including the likes of James Woods, Mike Wakefield, Paddy Graham, Murray Buchan, James Webb. Others who popped by for a tune up included Graham Bell of Ski Sunday fame and Warren Smith and his coaching team from the Warren Smith Ski Academy.

On Saturday the Internationally renowned ‘The London Ride’ was held at the ski show and UK skiers James Wood and Mikey Wakefield took out second and third places.

Heading for the Freeze
On the Friday we followed the skiers to the Channel 4 London Freeze event at Battersea Power Station. An even bigger kicker had been built here and the riders were going big. James Woods put on a stunning run against the eventual winner PK Hunder, to make the UK crew proud

Thanks to all the Chiropractors from Putney (Craig, Edwina, Abby, Carlyle and Nimrod) who were all on hand at the show. See you again next year.
