RLC Ski Championships – Presidents race

Corps Colonel RLC and Corps Regimental Sergeant Major joined Brigadier Parkinson the Vice President of RLC Skiing and 450 RLC soldiers and Officers for the penultimate race day at the German National Biathlon Centre in Ruhpolding, Bavaria.

One of the highlights of the competition (for the spectators), is the Presidents race; a compulsory race for all official visitors to the annual exercise, who as tradition dictates, lead the Alpine skiers from the front in what is for most, their first experience of Nordic ski racing.

Not to be out done, the downhill racers ensured that both Colonel RLC and the Corps Regimental Sergeant Major had the opportunity to ski the Giant Slalom route during the final day of racing; both put in many more turns than the brave competitors and even a few ‘old man – leg burn’ breaks on the truly frightening course! In the final Nordic race, teams were competing in the arduous 20 km Patrol race, a true test of skill and physical endurance.

RHQ The RLC extend their congratulations to the Winners, commiserations to the losers and an invitation to all units to enter again next year. Finally, a thank you to all the organisers, officials and sponsors that made the exercise such a success.

Sports awards winners 2022 : Team of the year Royal Logistic Corps Cycling Association (RLCCA) Ladies team (Road and Mountain bike) are leading the way in Army Cycling.The success of the RLCCA Ladies team has grown from strength to strength over the last six years. Road Team Captain and Manager Maj Michelle Debono-Evans and 2IC Capt Sue Chittock combined with Major Tracey Mackenzie-Rayner for Mountain biking changed this by leading from the front on the bike and also igniting a successful recruitment drive for new ladies. The RLC ladies now field 4 of the 10 members of the Army Ladies Road Race Team and one of the 5 members of the Army XC MTB Team. Their list of achievements includes winning the Williams Cup in successive years (2018 and 2019), the only team to have their name on the trophy to date (taking into consideration the cancelled events in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID), they took second place in the Inter Corps Championships and numerous podium places across Senior, Masters, Grand Masters and the Team Categories every year. E-cycling popularity during the COVID restrictions, provided further opportunity to demonstrate their ability, with the RLC Ladies’ team leading the way in the Army Cycling Union e-racing series on Zwift. They have recorded consistent podium places and have been commended as the only Corps to field a full ladies’ team across the race series. The RLC fielded approximately a third of the ladies competing across the 2021/22 race series. ... See MoreSee Less
