Roller ski race at the Olympic Park

Hello Dominic

Cloudless blue skies and sparkling sea are popular images of Greece where I'm writing this but that wasn't the case earlier this week when storms wreaked havoc, knocked out the electricity and delayed this update!  Luckily our village survived unscathed - on to the skiing news ...

Reminder - Cambridge Busway roller ski & cycle 11/9

On Sunday 11 September there's a Club trip to roller ski and cycle through the Cambridgeshire countryside on this excellent route.  You can choose between 40km and 20km options so contact Jeremy Price  to let him know you're going, for meeting details and lift sharing possibilities.

On Saturday 10 September at 1700 entry closes for the our 10km time trial and there's no entry on the day so please enter now if you wish to race on 18/9 [thanks if you've already entered].

Swenor are generously supporting our inaugural classic race at the Olympic Park so the Senior 1 hour  race will be run on matched roller skis [Swenor Alutech 2].
The skis will be fitted with either NNN or SNS Pilot bindings according to the competitors' requirements, this means:
  • If you haven't already entered - you should do so by 2000 on 15th September [after that you may have to borrow boots from the organisers if no skis with your bindings are available]. Enter here.
  • If you've already entered - you need to complete and submit this form to give us your shoe size/binding choice asap before the above date.
For the Junior/Novice 30min classic you need to use your own skis and race entry closes at 1700 on j24 September [unless capacity has been reached sooner] - enter now.
