The result of bringing the Anglo Scottish Championships together with the British Ski Academy Grand Prix was satisfied racers, happy faces and some great races. the innovations for the Bairns races may not have appeased the apparatchiks that sit on committees but the if they could have seen the smiles on the faces of the athletes, then this justifies the decisions made.
