March 2 Race at Elk River Canceled

Due to a number of conflicts with race schedules (regional, national, and international) and other schedule conflicts, MN Biathlon Twin Cities is not able to gather enough athletes and volunteers to run a safe and enjoyable race on Sunday, March 2.

Thus, we are canceling both the Experienced race and the Novice race.

We are also exploring the possibility of moving the race to the weekend of March 22 and 23. However, we will not be able to make that call until the week before.

There will be a Novice race at Mt. Itasca on Saturday, March 8 (Note change from March 9).

Please keep an eye on our website for more information.

 

Here is an alternative for anyone looking to race down south.

Mass Start at IBU Cup Trials- Kubek and Currier Take Victories

The Mass Start always makes for the most exciting biathlon event- with all competitors starting together and shooting at the same time. Four shooting stages with 15km of skiing for the men, and 12.5km for the women make it one of the longest biathlon events. With heavy snow at times, and gusty winds, this mass start did not disappoint with some excitement on the shooting range. The slow conditions and steep Mt Itasca climbs helped the fastest skiers make up some that time lost in penalties.

In the Women’s race, biathlon turned the previous days results on their head. Eighteen year old Anna Kubek, who had been struggling with her shooting the first two day, came out swinging, missing 4 targets. Kubek led after the 2nd shooting, and grew her lead to 1:45 ahead of second place. Claire Egan of Craftsbury Green Team is new to biathlon, but has made rapid progress. She had the fastest ski split of the day, and with 9 penalties, still managed 2nd place. Tracy Barnes, Durango Biathlon, had no misses her first two races at Mt Itasca, but she struggled today with 7 misses, finishing 2:15 out.

In the Men’s 15km, the Russel Currier, MWSC), came out on top- by 5 seconds- catching Casey Smith, MWSC, in the last kilometer after some really fast skiing to overcome 7 penalties on the range. Casey Smith had the best shooting on the day, with 2 misses out of 20, and led most of the race. Raleigh Goessling made it a MWSC sweep to finish third with 8 penalties, 1:48 out. Top local was Mark Johnson of Mt Itasca Biathlon, taking a break from medical school exams, to finish 4th with 4 penalties, 2:37 out.

The IBU Cup Trials wraps up on Wednesday with another Sprint event, 10km Men, 7.5km Women. Up to two men and one woman will be selected to compete at four IBU Cup races in Ridnaun, Italy in early January, where the final U.S. Olympic team selections will be made.
