The Peru Nordic Masters Rollerski Workshop Series has been a huge success. Expert and novice ski racers alike have attended the workshops and have improved their ski technique. The emphasis has been on improving skating technique, in preparation for the 2010 NYSSRA Championships, which is a freestyle event.
The workshop has benefited by having Saratoga Biathlon’s Tom Moffett as a guest instructor. Professor Moffett has led the group through some good no pole drills and offered some good technique critique.
Participants have focused on developing efficient poling habits. They have been working on bringing the hands up quickly and getting the proper elbow angle as they increase their poling power.
Next week the WEEK OF DEATH ROLLERSKI FESTIVAL kicks off with the rollerski workshop. Workshop participants will meet at the Point Au Roche Beach parking lot at 5:30. After working on various drills, the participants will get a chance to show off their skills in a 3 km time trial dubbed the Point Au Death!
WORKSHOP HOMEWORK… Watch Per Eloffson’s smooth technique as he battles Jari Isometsa!
The Week of Death Rollerski Festival culminates with the HILL OF DEATH MAGNETIC race on Saturday, Sept 19. There is still time to register. REGISTER HERE
