GB athlete Charlotte Watson, says:  "I am very excited for the upcoming World Cup races in Latvia. With the World Championships in Latvia next year this will be a really good opportunity for myself and the rest of the team to find out a bit about the terrain. There is also a Forest Relay, a rare occurrence in the World Cup. This will be my first International Relay as a senior so a great opportunity to test ourselves against the worlds best."
