British Nordic Development Squad (English Athletes)
I ski with the LRNSC at Hillingdon. I started skiing in Le Grand Bornand in France when I was 12, and I joined the BNDS in May 2017. I have only raced on snow in Bruksvallarna, but I have done lots of rollerski racing in Britain, and am currently proud to have won the 2019 GB Rollerski Series for U18s. This winter, I am hoping to do well at my first FIS races in Bruksvallarna and Idre in Sweden, and have an outside chance at qualifying for the Youth Olympic Winter Games. For the future, I hope to just keep improving, but would like to win one of the summer rollerski races over the next couple of years. I have a trusty but soon to be replaced pair of Salomon Combi boots, which I use for all my skiing, and for snow I have a pair of Salomon RC8 Skins classic skis, and a pair of Atomic Redster S9 for skating. For rollerskiing I use Marwe 610 skate skis and Swenor Alutech classics.

I’m Tristan and I’m 15. I am currently based out of Bridgwater, Somerset. I am a member of both Hyde Park Nordic Ski Club as well as Wessex Nordic and Biathlon. I have been skiing for around four years now with three and a half of them in BNDS. I have been racing on snow since April 2017 at many different events in many varied countries such as Norway, Sweden, Germany and Austria. This season is my first FIS season however I am a hopeful to qualify for the 2020 Winter Youth Olympic Games in Lausanne. In the future I hope I will be able to take my skiing to a much higher level as I really enjoy it and think it’s an amazing sport to participate in at any level.
Titus is a member of Wessex Biathlon and Nordic Ski Club. He has been on Alpine skis for as long as he could walk but is a relative newcomer to Nordic which he has been doing since 2017. In his first year skiing he held the U16 Scottish Rollerski champion title. This season he is taking part in a number of races and training camps as both a Nordic skier and a biathlete. He uses Swix and Madshus Poles, Madshus Boots and Atomic Skis.
I am a member of the London Region Nordic Ski Club. I have been skiing since 2013 and have FIS raced the last two winters. British U18 female roller ski champion 2017 & 2018. My goal for this winter is to make the most of my racing opportunities and limit the effects of a summer spinal injury which has prevented me fully preparing for the upcoming winter. My long-term goal is to be as good a skier as I can be. I use Salomon Boots, Swenor Classic Rollerskis, Marwe Skate Rollerskis and a mix of Fischer, Salomon and Atomic snow skis.
