Zoe commented after the race yesterday,

“I’m obviously disappointed I didn’t podium but if you had asked me at the beginning of the season if I would have been happy with these results so far, id be ecstatic.  The Olympics are only 2 years away but my program and results are on course for an Olympic medal.”

“Im absolutely stoked, 11 months ago my World Class funding ended and I didn’t know what to do.  I had nothing and no where to turn.  Literally overninght I came up with a plan and turned entrepreneur launching my own business which is now the largest daily deals site in the Isle of man, I secured the continuing support of my awesome sponsors, I negotiated a deal with the Dutch Snowbaord Cross Team to allow me to train with them and now I’m back on course for an Olympic medal – all this while running my business on a day to day basis.”
 These results mean Zoe is currently ranking no 5 in the World.

Zoe now heads to Stoneham, Canada, for the next round of the World Cup season on the 21st February.
