The British Team has just been competing in the third event of the Indoor Series. This was a great weekend organised by the Scottish Telemark Club in Glasgow. Athletes from France and Finland travelled to compete in the event but it was British Team athletes, James and Jaz that finished first!
On Saturday there was a training day where the team enjoyed coaching from Seb Mansart, the Biritsh Team coach. Over lunchtime there was a roller skiing taster session organised by John Mordue and a strength and conditioning session from Chris Stewart, a former Birtish Telemark Champion, who owns Leading Physique near Manchester. In the evening everyone got together for dinner which included a well fought jelly slurping race!
The race on Sunday was very well attended, lots of new faces and the largest start list of the series so far! The times were very tight at the top, the podium places were separated by only 0.36 seconds. The full results can be downloaded here: Glasgow Results. Well done to the top 6 racers who are:
- James French
- Jasmin Taylor
- Antti-Pekka Auvinen (Finland)
- Seb Mansart (France)
- Sion Bingham
- Allan Stevenson
In the team event:
- Scottish Telemark Club A
