Elk River Roller Ski Biathlon Race – August 8th, 2019 – RESULTS

Elk River Roller Ski Biathlon Race

Sponsored by Minnesota Biathlon and Twin Cities Biathlon
Thursday, August 8th, 2019 Woodland Trails Biathlon Range

RECAP:

Good weather—a bit tough on the wind—rarely does the wind affect much at Elk River in that tree surrounded bowl, but tonight was an exception. For those that didn’t get to shoot where you zeroed, it cost you!! Need to focus on the wind as you zero and then each time you come into the range and get into your assigned shooting point!! 

Thank you all for participating!! It was a good turnout considering a lot of folks on the road to Vermont already!
Bill Meyer, Coach
