As the days get longer and we start to get out of winter, the opportunities for getting on snow are starting to diminish rapidly. Biathlon has one distinct advantage over many other winter sports in that it is possible to train and compete through the summer on rollerskis. With this in mind we met Iain Ballentine from www.rollerski.co.uk and London XC Club to discuss how we can work together to promote biathlon in the UK.
It is early days yet but for those trying to get into Biathlon at any age I would urge you to get hold of a pair of rollerskis and get training. Iain is running an event at Dorney Lake on 15th April and the Chairman and Sec Gen are going along to give it a go. Anyone who would like to join us please get in touch with Iain via his web page or though Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/London-Cross-Country-Ski-Club-109118512973/
