Drake wins British Ski Cross gold

Former British alpine skier Ed Drake is targeting qualification for the 2014 Winter Olympics in ski cross.

Drake, 27, who made the switch at the beginning of the year needs three top 32 finishes in the remaining five World Cup events in order to reach the Sochi Games after a difficult start in the sport, which saw him fail to finish his first two races.

However, he ended the 2012/13 season by becoming British Ski Cross champion in Tignes, France, with Emily Sarsfield taking the women's title.
