Wessex rollerski races, Sunday 2nd September 2012

Last year the Wessex Biathlon & Nordic Ski Club ran one of the best rollerski races of the year - at Castle Combe race circuit. This year they will again have individual and team races - for all skiers - with novice, junior, sendior and veteran categories.

You should sign to both individual and team relay races, if you like - I'll make sure everyone gets in a suitable team. Sign up below and put the date in your diary. We had a great team last year, and came away with several prizes including first man and first men's relay team.

It's great practice before heading onto snow - it is easy to push yourself harder when there is a bit of a competitve element! The timing is accurate and the prizes are good. No racing experience is required - novices are welcome and the track is smooth and flat with no big hills. There is a cafe on site, and it is a good day out.
