Highlights of rollerskiing in 2016


With 2017 beginning, here's what has been going on in the last 12 months. We welcomed many beginners to the sport of roller skiing and cross-country skiing and led the 'birth' of laser-rollerski-biathlon in England. We had some excellent races both on tarmac and snow, and saw the GB cross-country skiers scale new heights. Roller skiing also cropped up in many odd places, including on the road to Rio and a controversial television advert.

Who knows what will happen in 2017, but it's sure to be another interesting year. We hope you can be part of it -
