Barnett Sports backs British Nordic Pathway
British Nordic are delighted to announce a 3 year partnership agreement with Barnett Sports for the provision of roller skis to its Pathway athletes. As part of the agreement, Barnett becomes the officially recognised provider of roller ski products to the British Nordic Junior, Youth and Development athlete squads.
With the success of Andrew Musgrave and Andrew Young on the world cup circuit over the past few years and the overall rise of British athletes up the world cross country ski rankings, the need to build on this strong platform and nurture young talent is key to future success.
Roller skiing plays a vital part in the summer training schedules of the British Nordic ski athletes and provides them with suitable off-snow equivalent training on tarmac. It further supports the coaching and athlete requirements by improving skiing technique as well as physical strength and endurance. Therefore, it is important to be able to provide young athletes with access to high quality and affordable equipment as they progress through the pathway programme.
Said British Nordic’s Communication and Sponsorship Manager Bruce Murray:
“We are delighted to have Barnett Sports on board as a partner to British Nordic. Barnett brings vast experience in terms of supplying high-performance sports equipment specifically for our training needs. Furthermore, Barnett will provide us with industry leading innovation and technology as well as additional marketing support that is invaluable to an organisation such as ours.
“For our athletes, having good quality equipment has an immediate impact on high performance training and ultimately our race performance and we are confident that with Barnett on board, our British Nordic pathway athletes will not only continue to build on the success of our senior athletes but be stars on the world stage in their own right in years to come.
Added Olivier Tetaz, Managing Director of Barnett Sports UK:
“We are delighted to partner with British Nordic and to build on our relationship with our fellow UK athletes. Here at Barnett Sports we take pride in knowing that our products will enable young athletes to pursue their future professional career. We are also incredibly honoured to know that the British Nordic Pathway athletes are wearing our logo. We would like to wish all the British Nordic athletes and members the very best of luck and we are looking forward to what is to come in the near future.”
