21st Fall Festival Recap – Results

Hi Everyone-
Today we held our final roller ski biathlon race of the year at Elk River on the Woodland Trails. Despite the snow earlier in the week and the falling leaves, the course was in the best shape we have seen since July. Thanks to Chad Bouley and his #1 son, the leaves and debris were blown off yesterday pm and this morning only a few dry leaves were floating around. With the snowy trees in the background, it was a fitting transition into winter. The forecast showed only a slight chance of precipitation, but actually the air stayed dry with temps in the lower 30’s. Roller skis are not the fastest at that temp, but slowly warmed up as the morning progressed.

In the Men’s and Jr Men’s 11.4 km category, Jakob Ellingson, Mt Itasca Biathlon and National Guard Biathlon, overcame some range problems to take down Cam Christiansen, NNW.

In the Women’s 9.3 km category, Siena Ellingson, Mt Itasca Biathlon and National Guard Biathlon, slowly pulled away from Hanne Guthrie, NNW, especially in the final standing stages.

In the Youth Women’s 9.3 Km race, Emma Watson, Duluth Biathlon and top shooter of the day, missed only 2 shots of the 20, to hold off Kaisa Bosek, Wolfpack Biathlon of Alexandria, who was the second best shooter with 3 misses. Cheresa Bouley, NNW, improved her shooting immensely today, but suffered a broken wheel on one of her skis so you could hear her coming each time she approached the range! She finally had to finish the race running in her ski boots. Good Luck at the State Cross Country Running meet later in the week!!

And In the Boys/Girls 7.2 km event, Ryker Bosek, Wolfpack, shooting all prone on prone targets managed to stay ahead of Lucy Watson, Duluth Biathlon, who was shooting prone and standing—both with 10 misses.

The next race in MN will be MNCup #1 on the 10th of Dec at Mt Itasca on manmade snow!!
