Rocky Valley Rush this weekend plus Hoppet entry extension

The Rocky Valley Rush is on this coming Sunday 18th August at Falls Creek. This is a low cost, freestyle, citizens’ race and a good warm-up before the Hoppet. The best Australian skiers will be competing at the Australian Championships at Perisher Valley, so here is your opportunity to start with the Russian team (including Alexander Legkov the winners of last year’s Hoppet and the 2013 World Cup Distance Champion, out here for off-season training), to win some great prizes.

More information about the race and a link to the on-line entry can found on the BNSC website.

Kangaroo Hoppet race organisers have just advised that the standard entry fee has been extended for another week. The late entry fee won’t kick in till Tuesday Aug 20. Start positions will be allocated over the next three days so if you are fast, you can still get a start position near the front. The snow cover now looks more certain, with over 45cm falling in the past week and good freezes over the weekend..

Entries can be made via the Hoppet website.
