Unfortunately, as the winds increased and the rain came down, the conditions got more treacherous on the roads. There were several crashes early on in the Men’s Championships and the decision was made to abandon the race. Safety is paramount in these events and while it was not an easy decision to make, it was the right one.
Thanks to all who competed, supported and assisted with the event. .
Oh my word #RAFNordc are tough cookies. It’s been an amazing few days learning about a new sport and the world of opportunities that lie ahead.
Today was the second day of racing with a lung bursting 5.3 km hill climb consisting of just under 300 metres elevation gain and saw me with an average heart rate of 170 in a time of 38:23
Then in the afternoon a 4.5km multi lap sprint race. Where I managed to pull out second place in the novice section despite a fairly epic fall.
I’ve got a wedge of weight to shift and a load of fitness to gain before the next training and racing week in London and Tamworth. #ToughSportForToughPeople#Pathway2snow#rollerskiing#rollerski#rafsportsfederation#xcskiing#biathlon

When asked about his passion for Shooting he wrote: “I love the competitive element! The sense of achievement when you post a good score. I like that shooting focuses your mind and let’s you ‘escape’ from all other thoughts/worries/problems for a few hours.” #raf#royalairforce#sport#rafsport#claypigeonshooting#clayshooting#fieldsports#rafsportsfederation#gunsofinstagram
