Montgomery, Wright Win 2014 Victorian Rollerski Championship

Lake Mountain LogoOn Sunday 11th May 45 rollerskiers and ‘Skikers’ braved wet conditions to compete in the Victorian Rollerski/Skike Championships at Lake Mountain. Competitors had the choice of either a 10km or 4km hill climb and although the rain made the conditions more challenging, all enjoyed the event. This was an increase on the numbers of the race last year which was good considering the wet conditions.

World Cross Country Ski Championship skiers Nick Montgomery and Casey Wright were clear winners of the 10 km men’s and women’s, Hugh Pollard and Katerina Paul won the junior category while Meg Watkins was a clear winner of the 4km event.

The event coincided with a range of activities including a training camp for the Victorian Junior XC Ski Squad; laser biathlon come and try session run by the Australian Biathlon Association; a demo trade display by the people from Team Skike; and a learn to rollerski clinic run by Melbourne Nordic Ski Club.
