NEWSLETTER - 16th November 2011

Hi, here's what's coming up at London Region Nordic Ski Club:

A training challenge ...

You know how gratifying it feels when you've picked up a couple of tips that really seem to make a difference to your skiing ... so if you haven't signed up for at least one of our roller ski courses, what are you waiting for?  I challenge you not to gain some useful advice from attending as we've got 2 top class guest coaches at the next sessions:
  • Alan Eason next Sunday 20 November [and he'll also be giving a ski waxing demonstration after the course] - if you don't know Alan read more about him at
  • Dan Mallett on Sunday 27 November [with video analysis] - Dan, one of our newest Club members, is a top level cross country and biathlon coach and master racer. A former member of the Canadian national biathlon and XC teams, he has coached at provincial and national level.  His home club is Chelsea Nordiq ( based in the Gatineau Park, home of the Worldloppet's Gatineau Loppet. Dan also goes back country skiing, just take a look at this video of a stunning trip he made last season - enjoy!
You can book a place on either course at

and it doesn't matter how long you've been skiing, there's always something you can refine.
