The British Championships and next London Region Challenge Cup will take place on the road cycling circuit at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in classic technique on matched Swenor Alutech skis which will be provided via The Rollerski Co.

From a mass start the Senior Racers will compete over 14.4 km [9 laps] the Juniors [and anyone who prefers a shorter distance] over 8km [5 laps],  the Under 14s over 3.2km [2 laps] with a cut off time of 1445 for all participants.

This will be a perfect opportunity to race at this prestigious venue by the Olympic Velodrome, ideal for roller skiing with an excellent surface.

Prizes will be awarded in Junior, Youth, Senior and Master categories.

In the interests of creating a level playing field for all participants, there is no option to race on your own skis even if they are the same model.

There is no obligation to have raced in the other GB Series or Challenge Cup races, you can just enter this one if you wish, subject to places being available.
