The skiing is rather limited here with only 2.5km of skiing, for the races we are going to do double ski loops in between shooting. Skiing around the first day there were lots of little rocks in the snow followed by strips of p-tex ski base, hopefully I can get through without my skis getting to beat up.
My first race is Thursday January, 30th it is a 20km individual the sprint and pursuit follow on Saturday and Sunday. Live results and possibly even streaming video can be found on biathlonworld.com the race starts at 1:30 pm CET which is 4:30am Pacific and 7:30am Eastern. I am expecting all of my family and friends on the west coast to get up bright and early so that they can watch the race.
