Biathlon Yukon is reaching out to CMBC mountain bikers, and that’s a good thing! A few of us took part in a mountain bike biathlon race (after careful orientation on the rifles and range) this past Monday. I think it’s safe to say we all had an awesome time, including those of us who’d never been anywhere near a gun before. So much fun, we’re doing it again!
Monday, July 18 will be shooting lessons and practice. We strongly suggest you attend if you’re considering joining any future races. Pre-registration is required: e-mail oliver.maryjane@gmail. com. Cost is $5 for a box of bullets.
The next race will take place on Monday, July 25. Pre-registration required (to same e-mail) and cost is $2. Can’t beat that!
Biathlon Yukon is also looking for volunteers to help at these events – no experience required! Contact Mary Jane Oliver if you’re interested in learning more about biathlon while helping out: oliver.maryjane@gmail. com.
Location is the biathlon range on Grey Mountain Road (or upper magnusson parking lot on this map: http://bit.ly/pbf31e).
***For safety reasons, please come to the shooting practice on July 18 if you hope to join the race and are new to this.
This is not us, but it will give you a taste of the experience: Terrace, BC bike biathlon video.
