On October 2nd 10 young riders from Afghanistan went for a summer training session to Reg Rawan valley in Kapisa. Lacking snow, the team made the most out of what they were given. They took some laps in the sand to get ready for the winter games. The youngsters enjoyed being back on board after a year without training.
While sandboarding is a new chance to prepare for the winter season in Afghanistan, the sport is very popular in the USA, Canada, and especially some Arab countries already.
