After spending most of the week trying to put together a race this coming weekend, we have decided that wasn’t going to work. The Elk River venue didn’t get enough snow to revive the trails, and the northern venues are forecast to be in the low single digits at best with wind chills in the teens below zero. Not a lot of fun for anyone.
Accordingly, here is our revised MNCup Schedule:
- #4 Saturday the 2nd of March—Elk River with Nisswa as a backup
- #5 Saturday the 9th of March—Snowflake
- #6 Saturday the 16th of March—Mt Itasca finale..
We probably will have a novice race with each of these events. Watch the Invitations that come out for each individual race for details.
Nationals will be starting the 28th of March in Jericho VT..
Meanwhile, this coming Sunday is the Youth Individual races in Slovakia at the Youth and Junior World Champs. Garrett, Vasek and Emma are all in Europe presently. You can pick up some video clips and the results on the IBU webpage.
Also, starting tomorrow will be full race videos on replay for the World Cup now in Antholz Italy. The past World Cup races are all available as well. 20,000 fans at the Sunday mass start races in Germany.
Enjoy the Journey!
