The Eurotest training programme is headed by Emma Carrick-Anderson, one of Britain's finest ever female ski racers. Emma competed at no less than 4 Olympic Games, 6 World Championships and numerous World Cups, was 11th in the '97 World Champs, Britain's top female Alpine Racer for 15 years and a calibrated opener for the Eurotest. Emma knows what it takes to 'reach the level'. Emma is also a BASI Trainer.
Emma is joined by Mike Barker. Mike is a former National Team member and National Team Coach. Mike has been working on the Eurotest programme for many years. Like Emma MIke is also a BASI ISTD.
Training is Monday to Friday for a minimum of 4 hours of on-snow work in the gates or alternative training if weather does not permit with regular video analysis. Every Friday a comprehensive race is run with electronic timing and pace setters to replicate the Eurotest as close as possible and prepare mentally to achieve optimum performance.
Fitness and Preparation
Emma is a qualified fitness coach. Hers and MIke's knowledge combined with experience of training in the National Squads will ensure your fitness won't let you down. A fitness programme on 3 afternoons per week is included whilst training. The fitter you are the better chance you have of reaching the level.
Eurotest requires that you are a member of BASI or an equivalent ski teaching organisation. Previous race training experience is ideal, but not strictly necessary for Eurotest Training; however, you may want to consider trying an Race Carve course for initial experience. Call our office and ask to speak to Emma or MIke directly for advice.
