Pippa Middleton and her brother James started rollerskiing a couple of years ago, to prepare firstly for the Vasaloppet in 2012, then the Engadin Skimarathon in 2013. Both rose to the challenge in a big way, trained incredbibly hard, and completed the marathons with excellent times.

They trained with Ekaterina Rachel. Katya is one of our best instructors, with a robustly Russian approach to teaching. She may have 'mocked [them] relentlessly' in their training, but all in good humour!
