James Dinsmore (Slalom)
During 2014 James and his wife became the proud parents of a baby girl. Added pressure one may think on the shoulders of the BSA 2013 Slalom Champion in the defense of his title. James not only lead the way in the slalom rankings but his enthusiasm at every level goes to prove he is a real credit to the sport. His knowledge is second to none and attention to detail is paramount with his Starboard and Severne equipment his weapons of choice.
Some may keep this knowledge to themselves, to strengthen their position, but not James, he is to be found between races, encouraging others to echo his achievements. After a fiercely competitive season it was the gentleman of the fleet James who proudly stood on top of the podium to take the BSA Slalom title for a second year his first thoughts were to thank everyone involved in providing the series but most of all his new family.
