Dave Ryding equalled Great Britain's best-ever World Cup finish in January 2017 when he won slalom silver in Kitzbuehel - matching Konrad Bartelski's second place in the downhill in Italy in 1981.

Ryding almost made another trip to the podium in Stockholm in the parallel slalom a week later but finished an agonising fourth, just 0.06 seconds off a bronze medal. 

He achieved five top-ten finishes and ended the campaign ranked eighth in the world. Ryding has also impressed in the 2017/2018 season, including finishing fourth in the Oslo slalom city event last month.

Ryding competed at the Vancouver and Sochi Olympic Winter Games, finishing 17th in the slalom in Russia and achieved his highest World Championship placing in 2017, when he came 11th.

Four years later, in PyeongChang, Ryding secured the best alpine finish by a British skier in 30 years when he placed ninth.
