Kandahar Racing’s December training programme takes place in Gol, Norway which is one of Europe’s top early training locations. Our management team will provide trainees with the highest standards of professional ski race coaching, race support, fitness training and pastoral care over a 1 week period from 16–23 Dec 2017.


Training will include technique, skills, drills, SL/GS/SG gate training and race simulation with electronic timing.  We will also have Ski Cross training options throughout the week.  Trainees will participate in a full fitness and activities programme every day and evenings will include ski prep, video analysis and classroom lessons on other aspects of ski racing and athletic development.  The programme caters for young skiers brand new to competitive snowsports, through to experienced athletes with national team aspirations.  It can be used as a training camp on it’s own or as an ideal preparation camp for the Anglo-Scottish Cup.


FIS races will be available for any U18/21 athletes attending the camp with a full FIS licence.  There are 2 x SL races and 2 x GS races in Aal which is a 10 min drive from our hotel from 19-22 Dec.  This is an excellent opportunity to race in some high standard FIS races and to get 2 x starts in each tech discipline which will set trainees up with better start numbers for the remainder of the season.  Any athletes wishing to take part in these races should let the manager know ASAP (matt@kandaharracing.com) so that entries can be coordinated through BSS.


Matt Shepherd will be the manager for the duration of the camp and the coaching team will be Eilidh McLeod, Dan Poth, Ash Breese, TJ Baldwin, Russ Bennett & Jake Richardson.


To ensure that a progressive and structured training and racing programme can be put in place, trainees attending as inliers must commit to the full duration of the training block.  Outliers are free to dip in and out of our programme on a day by day basis as they please.
