Rollerski rolls on

The rollerski year hasn't finished yet, still two Saturdays to go


But this hasn't stopped us looking forward to 2014's rollerskiing and cross-country skiing.  Good snow has fallen across large parts of Europe.  Not much sign of it in London, but ideal conditions for rollerskiing currently.

This year has been the busiest year for rollerskiing yet, and we hope to see even more activity in 2014.  Our biggest new project will be Juniors, but we'll also have a new adult session in Surrey, starting January, and a new regular training group in Cambridge.

More information below on ski marathons, courses, equipment and GB news...
 

Junior Rollerskiing - Appeal for Juniors 

Adults have always been our main focus will continue to be.  But in 2014 we are introducing rollerskiing to juniors, with courses in Hyde Park and Brooklands, Surrey.  All we need now are some more kids.  So if you know of potential skiers aged from 11+ who'd like to take part (or their teachers / parents), please send them this link - http://rollerski.co.uk/gorollerski.html  We want positive, energetic young people who are keen for a new challenge.
 
Thanks to funding we can keep the costs low, but we also need committed parents who can support by bringing kids to sessions, etc.  All of our team got into sport at a young age thanks to adults who made it happen.  We really want to make this programme a success.

Rollerski 2014


In the New Year we will be back in force, building up to the peak ski season.  You'll find courses in Hyde Park, Dorney, Redbridge, Cambridge and Brooklands in Surrey, with a range of activities to get you into good skiing shape.  A listing is here - http://rollerski.co.uk/events.html , more details will follow on new 'Senior' Brooklands courses (picture, right), but let me know if you're interested in Brooklands skiing.

Ski Marathon Calendar


Each year I create a 'Ski Marathon' calendar, which shows most of the cross-country ski marathons in Europe and around the world.  
This is (mostly) updated now, and you can find it here - http://rollerski.co.uk/nf003.html  
Ski marathon racing is growing ever more popular amongst the British, as endurance sport becomes more popular - the secret is getting out.  Picture - Dolomitenlauf.

Shop:  DVDS & Christmas Orders


We have a new 'On Snow' technique DVD (similar to the 'Rollerski' technique DVD) and a new 'Wax Room' DVD to help with ski preparation, see - http://rollerski.co.uk/buyaccessories.html#dvds  
 
You will find all the usual boots, rollerskis & cross-country skis in stock.  Last orders before Christmas - Friday 20th December!

Another present idea is a Rollerski Gift Voucher, for courses and private lessons, see - http://rollerski.co.uk/giftvouchers.html

Posy Musgrave (Hyde Park instructor for the past couple of years) is competing on snow this year as a member of the GB Nordic Ski Team.  Last weekend she achieved 59 FIS points, the lowest points ever achieved by a British female XC skier (lower = better).  In fact, in British cross-country skiing, only her brother Andrew and Andrew Young have had lower points.  You can read Posy's blog here - http://www.teamgb.com/blogs/olympic-blog/posy-musgrave-typical-day-cross-country-ski-training

 
We'll be in Hyde Park this Saturday and next if you need a rollerski 'fix' before Christmas.  Then we have a week's break before returning on 4th January.  Thanks to the instructors all for their hard work, creativity and ingenuity, and best wishes to you for an enjoyable Christmas & New Year!  Please get in touch if you have any questions or comments and see you in 2014.
 
Best Season's Regards,
Iain + The Team
