Jamaican skier Errol Kerr finished 11th at the Alpe d'Huez Ski Cross World Cup in France yesterday after posting a points tally of 240.00 in the final round.

Twenty-two-year-old Kerr, a founding member of the Jamaican ski team, ended in the same position after the qualifying period in the meet that attracted close to 100 skiers from all over the world.

He will now head to Toronto, Canada, where he will be a part of the Jamaican contingent at a meet scheduled for 'Blue Mountain', located two hours outside of Toronto.

Errol, a California native, is a former US Team downhill racer who switched disciplines and national allegiance after growing tired of that particular variant of the sport.

Errol, whose father is Jamaican, has ambitions of representing the country in the ski cross discipline at the Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver next month, and is expected to be named among the International Ski Federation's list of participants.
