Roller Ski Rocks!
CCC is launching a new Racing Rocks! event aimed at athletes at the end of the Learning to Train (L2T) stage: Roller Ski Rocks!
Why roller ski:
Cross country skiing is a highly technical sport that requires years of practice in order for a skier to become technically proficient. Unfortunately we do not have year-round snow so that athletes can have continuous practice.
Rollerskiing is the most specific way of skiing in the summer (other than skiing on glaciers…) and therefore provides skiers with the opportunity to develop and refine their ski technique year round.
To encourage clubs and young athletes to increase their rollerski training during the dryland season, CCC is launching a new Racing Rocks! event aimed at athletes at the end of the Learning to Train (L2T) stage: Roller Ski Rocks! RSR! events can come in various shapes and forms but will generally use smooth paved terrain with a flat to undulating profile (no long or steep hills) and where car traffic is either restricted or controlled.
