Today saw another glorious day in terms of weather for the 3rd training week – we have been very lucky with the weather so far. The atmosphere amongst the trainees and coaches was just like the weather, warm and pleasant which was reflected in the level of the skiing on show today.
Performance squads were on timed runs first thing with some fantastic skiing and times coming in before they were put through their paces with Alex and Jamie on some technical drills. Race Dev 1 were working on stance and outside ski pressurisation with myself whilst Race Dev 2 worked on lateral separation and Andrew C had them doing short swing turns. Race Dev 3 and 4 were continuing to work on building the skills of balance and rotating the skis.
The head to head team races were the closest they have been for a long time with all the race development groups competing across 5 teams each with a coach. A lot of the races were neck and neck with the smallest of mistakes often making the difference between a win and a loss. It is with great pride and honour though that I can announce my Blue team were the winners today!
Following a request from Alford Academy today can we please ask that all athletes wear non-marking training shoes in the gym on each Sunday.
Many thanks and look forward to seeing all of you again next week or of course beforehand on our very popular Wednesday eve training and race league. Details are HERE if you are interested to join us.
