Kandahar Racing have limited places available for FIS athletes looking for pre-season training and racing in Norway. Up to 12 x SL, GS & SG FIS starts are available in either Hemsedal or nearby Geilo. Our management team will provide all FIS athletes with the highest standards of coaching, race support and fitness training over a 4 week period from 23 Nov- 14 Dec 2019. This camp is open to FIS athletes born in 2003 or earlier and U16’s 2004/05.


TRAINING

Training will include technique, skills, drills, SL/GS/SG gate training and race simulation with electronic timing. On snow training will be alongside the military programme run by Kandahar Racing over the same period. Trainees will participate in a full fitness programme every afternoon and evenings will include ski prep and video analysis. Limited academic support will also be available in the afternoons and evenings should it be required. The camp can be used as a training camp on it’s own, or as a race camp to notch up as many FIS starts as possible.

RACING

FIS races will be available for any U18/21 athletes attending the camp with a full international FIS licence. The exact races available will be determined once the FIS calendar is released, however it's likely to include approx 4 x SL, 6 x GS & 2 x SG starts over the 4 week period in Hemsedal and Geilo. For athletes remaining for our December Camp 14 - 21 Dec there should be an additional 2 x SL & 2 x GS races in Aal. All races TBC via FIS website once published. This is an excellent opportunity to race in some high standard FIS races 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 FIS coach Leon know ASAP (leon@kandaharracing.com) so that entries can be coordinated through GB Snowsport.
