WATCH: All The Action From Day Two At Meribel 2018

We bring you the thrills and spills from day two...

The Alpine downhill is a fast and intense event, and this year the racers had perfect conditions to put in some quick times.

First up it was the women's event, which was dominated by the Army.

It took two of the places on the podium, with Captain Lauren Barr taking the title in her first ever inter-services championships. She told Forces Network

"There's a lot of technical actions in it. I quite like the ones where you can go full throttle and let go.

"But by the time you get on the wall you're just really buzzing."

In the men's downhill, it was a familiar name who came out on top.

James French, who won Tuesday's telemark skiing event for the Navy, scored the fastest time.

He said: "It's great to finally beat the Army lads. They're really tough competition.

"Conditions are great on the piste- challenging, but quick today."

This was his first ever Alpine victory at the championships. 

It was the Army, though, who won the overall Alpine downhill team competition.
