I love this place!
The first time I was on Belmeken in 2007, but the camp did not go well .. the first day was traumatized ... torn ligament knee playing volleyball. The remaining 20 days tanning in the sun and rested as a tourist, while the other prepared for the World Cup season…
This year I decided to go back to
and that was great !!! ))) My team went to Bulgaria ... but I decided on the height. At Belmeken Borovoye, Kazakhstan 1900 m
The first 10 days I had company: Lamovy, Malinowski and the guys from
. Lars, Øyvind and Hans ... the first time they were here ... Stanimir Belomazhev helped them organize the camp. Trainings were fun)) went on hikes in the *Cabin*, and a *Tooth* ... (2400m and Norway 2600 meters). Roller track is not long, but difficult on the profile ... I was skiing on the road .. in one direction 5km .. loop of 10 km was OK. That's quite had enough)))
Twice descended into Yundola (
19 km down from Belmekena) and from there climbed up the hill on rollers ... Very heavy training! with the weather a little luck .. in early September had start cold and rained 5-6 days)) but this did not bother to train. Snow even fly one day))) Generally on Belmeken always a lot of people ... were Norwegian biathlons, 18 days ... in September came skiers and biathlons from Kazakhstan, just 60 ... man! 61 if you count me))) and of course Bulgarian athletes!
Big Big Thanks to Plamen !!! for this training camp, I were live at his apartment…
Next year I want to go there for the summer ... next to Belmeken there are several different places .. so that you can fully train all summer, to change places and carry interest charges! That such plans))
And now .. time to go home :))
