The newest member of our professional athlete team is a downhill powerhouse and the newly crowned British Mens Downhill Champion..
We’re proud to welcome Jack Gower to the FLŌA professional athlete team. Jack’s a dynamic alpine ski racer and proud member of Team GB. This has been his first year competing on the FIS World Cup Circuit, and he’s leapt into it with a ferocious appetite.
It’s not just Jack’s speed in the Super G, Downhill, and Combined that caught our attention, but his easy, effortless style he exudes while weaving his descent.
