Scotland!

Posted on:

I flew to Scotland last week for the opening race of the British Indoor Telemark Series, run by the British Team, in Xscape in Breahead, Glasgow. The event was so much fun and really brought out our competitive spirits! I finished 3rd Overall (including males and females) behind the 2 top British boys, Chris Stewart and Jack Harvard Taylor. Sign up here (http://gbtelemark.co.uk/team-calendar/british-indoor-telemark-series-2013/entry-form/) for the next one at Hemel Hempstead’s SnowCentre! Shortly after the race, I took the train up to Aviemore to stay with friends in Boat of Garten, Evie (fromĀ www.highlandhomechildcare.com) and Kev (fromĀ www.snowboardaviemore.co.uk). I joined up with a few of the guys from the GB Biathlon Team and Mike Dixon (6 x Olympian and commentator for EuroSport) for some roller-ski training which was awesome!

Not only that! We went canoeing, mountain biking (with www.backcountrybiking.co.uk), hiking, wild water swimming, climbing, camping on the Moray Coast and even skiing on the 31st July! Check out my photos from the week!
