LRNSC update - October

Hello Dominic

Facebook is peppered with snowy pictures from Austria and our autumnal weather reminds me that the ski season is almost here!  But hold on, there's lots of roller sking to enjoy first.  Here's a round up of our upcoming events to help you get ready and in the mood for the white stuff.

Training events

Free roller ski practice sessions for LRNSC members from 13/10/13: From tomorrow's roller ski practice session at Hillingdon Cycle Circuit, these afternoons will be free for our Club members.  If you belong to another SSE affiliated club, you're welcome to join us for a £5.00 donation towards track hire.  Free tea and coffee for everyone afterwards - follow tradition and bring cakes!  
This weekend I'll also be giving a short workshop for LRNSC members focusing on gliding further to improve skating, 

27/10 ski fitness training in Fleet with Lorraine Field - get a serious workout and learn exercises that will help you go further faster.  Cost is just £7.00 for 1.5 hour session - how's that for value!

November roller ski courses are fast filling up!  There are still some places for improvers on 3 November, and a few for all levels 24 November - read more and book now!  There are also roller ski practice sessions on these dates.

Ski waxing talk on 24/11/13: after the course and practice session, Christopher Richards, a keen racer and our Coaching Committee Member will give a talk [approx 1 hour] on ski waxing.  So if this is a mystery to you or you just need a quick refresher, come along to this event at Hillingdon Cycle Circuit.

Support the Olympic dream - Sochi 2014

The British Nordic Ski Team is urgently seeking to 'crowdfund' £5,000 by 18 November to help them on their way Sochi.  If you heard Head Coach Roy Young's inspirational talk you'll know how hard they train and they expect to deliver the best cross country results ever.  But they need money - so pledge your support now, every little bit helps.

Enjoy roller skiing!

Don't let the weather forecast put you off.  Dig out your waterproofs and come along.  You'll feel so much better if you do!

Roller ski racing

Saturday 19 October: 4 hour event - how far can you ski in 4 hours?  Compete with top skiers at race pace or use it as a training session skiing as far as you want at your pace, with occasional pauses.  Enter now online.  The event starts at 1330 and if you're hiring equipment please collect it at 1300.  There's supper afterwards for anyone who wants to refuel and be sociable for just £5.00.

Congratulations!  Well done to LRNSC members who competed in the 2013 GB Roller Ski Series - see the final results.  Special mention goes to member Kim Vale who achieved 3rd place in the Senior Ladies category, while Christopher Richards and Des Goff achieved 10th and 11th in the Senior Mens.
Also congratulations to newcomer Cesar Baena and Irene Chowko who won the senior male and female categories in our 22/9 skiathlon race.  Cesar hails from Venezuela and holds the World Record for the longest roller ski trip.
