Sunday 4 November saw 18 excited and enthusiastic youngsters take part in this The Barnaby Norman Memorial Race, an event for under 20s.  For many it was the first time they had raced on roller skis.  After completing a time trial to determine racing order they then completed agility sections and short races in different age categories. 

Winner of the Memorial Trophy was Joseph Rosenfeld of the British Nordic Development Squad [BNDS] with Jasmine Uth [BNDS] and Haakon Tofte [LRNSC] winning the U14 categories, and Noah Barnes [LRNSC] and Chloe Govett, the U12 categories.  Trophies were kindly presented by Lucy Smith, Barnaby Norman's mother.
