Saying Goodbye to our Resident Athletes

The Brazilian Bobsleigh Team make their way to the World Championships

As you all know, it's been a very exciting eight weeks here at Camp Hill as we have had the Brazilian Bobsleigh Team using the Bobsleigh Push-start track that we have here for training. Yesterday was their last day of training here in North Yorkshire and so they will be making their way to Romania for the Bobsleigh & Skeleton World Push Championships 2016 this week! Even though this is of course very exciting for these guys, we are of course sad to see them go and we just can't wait to find out how they progress over the next two years.

ITV and BBC come to Camp Hill

We have been the centre of local media recently, and we explain why.

It's been a crazy couple of weeks here at Camp Hill where we have had different media sources ringing us every other day asking if they can come along and see how and why the Brazilian Bobsleigh team are here in this small part of North Yorkshire. The boys are not used to all of this attention either as over in Brazil, there is very little focus on sport and as much as we have loved having the likes of the BBC and ITV here at Camp Hill, the Brazilian bobsleigh team are the ones who have truly appreciated it.

Becoming The Centre of Attention

How we made it to National Media

It's been very exciting here at Camp Hill over the last two weeks having the Brazilian Bobsleigh Team training here. As some of you may already know, we have become the centre of attention with the local press and we really were not expecting to make it onto national radio, and we don't think that the Brazilian Bobsleigh Team were either!!

Brazil makes it way to Camp Hill

As the Olympics Kick-off in Rio, sporting talent arrives here for the summer!

As some of you may or may not know, Camp Hill has one of the two Olympic-standard Bobsleigh push start tracks in England which is pretty cool if you ask us! This means that we occasionally get professional Bobsleigh teams coming here to use the track to do some training and for the next month we will have a team who are heading tot the World Championships in September. Furthermore, it's the Brazilian Bobsleigh team who are joining us on the estate and whilst the buzz of the Olympics is happening in Rio, it's VERY exciting to have a bit of Brazil sporting talent right here in this little piece of North Yorkshire!
