Cycling the Olympic circuit

Hello Dominic

Wouldn't it be a great idea to use the Olympic road cycling circuit for roller skiing? Yes!
LRNSC is organising the first race in the British Rollerski series there on 2nd May.  It's a 3km free technique race suitable for all abilities.  See the details and enter now.
NB You need to sign up online as there will be no race entry on the day.

There's lots more to update you on ...

Volunteers needed - marshalls & photographers

As part of the arrangement to use this track we've agreed to help marshall the Condor Cycles cycle race that follows our event.

Marshalls are required on the track from 12.00 - 4.00pm to help with the organisation of both events. If you are racing in the rollerski race you can still help with the cycle race afterwards.

Photographers are also needed to capture the action so if you're handy with a camera, the Club needs you too.

Can you help? Got any questions? Please contact Gerard Evans as soon as possible.
Marshalling help would be especially appreciated and it will help in arranging future events at the Olympic Park.

10 May - roller ski courses

Our coaching programme has been overhauled now we've got more instructors in the Club so there's a clearer pathway for beginners and intermediate/advanced skiers to develop their skills linked to Snowsport England Proficiency awards.

10 May kicks off with a beginners' learn to roller ski course and one for improvers that focuses on returning to roller skiing after the winter and race preparation.  Book your beginners' course or improvers' course online now.
