Mike Dixon rollerski masterclass and talk

Pictures Mike will be back later in 2007!

Mike Dixon - one of the UK's most accomplished winter Olympians - will be giving a rollerski masterclass and talk in London on Saturday 9th December.

Mike is a 6-times Olympian, having competed in cross-country skiing or biathlon races at every Winter Games from Sarajevo in 1984 to Salt Lake City in 2002. Now retired from international competition, Mike is biathlon commentator for British Eurosport and a leading motivational speaker.

The session on 9th December will begin with a skating rollerski masterclass from 2pm-4pm in Hyde Park. This will be followed by a talk at 4.30pm in the Mitre Pub (near Paddington Station). The rollerski session is for proficient skating skiers only, but the talk will be enjoyed by all. (The rollerski session & talk is £25 and the talk alone is £5).

Mike's coming down from Scotland for the weekend, and we are delighted to get hold of him (he's the closest thing we have to a nordic superstar!). We hope as many as possible will come for his unique experience and insights. Mike has founded a biathlon and nordic ski club in his native Cairngorms, which is now thriving with 60+ children, regularly training in Aviemore.
