Thursday, August 19th, 2021 Woodland Trails Biathlon Range
Below are the results from last night—sorted—on one sheet sorted by gender/race length and on the other sorted by gender/race length/age class. While the younger athletes are in two year age classes, at Trials <17 and youth will be combined so into a 4 yr class. The Junior class is now three years [19,20,21] and the seniors run up to 30 but many older race down. In any case, Ben Fena had a really good race as did Amanda Kautzer!! Those relay rounds are a mixed blessing!! Takes a lot of time to load them, and they throw off the rhythm of the shooting. So good shooting pays!! – Bill Meyer
Coming up on the 27th of June will be a daylong program at the Woodland Trails and Range at Elk River. In the morning, we will have a practice working on shooting skills and roller ski technique, and in the pm—the first Rollerski Biathlon Race of the season!! See the above Invitation for the race!
