Results from the Individual and Sprint TT

Hi Everyone! Good work with all of the time trials over the past 2 weeks. Between the cross country and biathlon events, we’ve had five(5!) different time trials since Jan 23rd. This racing block is in the books and now we have a few weeks of rest and skill development! Below are the results from the Individual on Jan 24th and the Sprint race from Jan 30th. Click Here to see the results from the BCST Time trials!

Candy Cane Cup Rankings – Biathlon

As part of our race series, everyone earned points for the races that they entered. Eligible races were both the cross country and biathlon races that were part of the Candy Cane Cup. Points were earned based on your placings in the Candy Cane cups. Athletes were only ranked within their “class”. For instance, if you did a cross country Candy Cane Cup, and only skied 1 lap of the course, you would only be ranked against the other who only skied one lap. If you did a biathlon Candy Cane Cup and shot prone targets off of a rest, you were only ranked against others who shot prone targets off a rest. The more races entered, the higher the points! We’ll use the same point system for the Telemark Cups this winter! There were some really close results!

Relay Results

Lots of great results in the Relay event at Nationals!

Jasper and Julia teamed up with Sarah Beaudry to place third and as first and second were both from Alberta, they won the Silver in the Men/Women relay!  Way to go!

Colton teamed up with Kaede and Thomas and placed a solid 6th in the youth men/women category, second of the BC teams (the other BC team finished 4th and claimed the bronze medal).

Natalie teamed up with Ethan and Cole, and they rocked the course to finish 1st, winning the Gold!  Danica raced with Emmanuel and Joe, placing 3rd but no medal as they were the second BC Team.  Kira raced on an “unofficial team” with Claire and Linnea to finish first in the unofficial category.

Great results everyone!  Things wrap up tomorrow with the final race, the Individual.  Good luck to all!

Pursuit Results

Another day, another race…

Julia led the way for Telemark today, with a second place finish!  Jasper finished in 12th, Natalie placed 5th, Danica 10th, Kira 17th and Colton 18th.   Colton had a difficult day at the range, but when you leave your last shooting bout at the back of the pack and then pass 7 or 8 competitors, that isn’t so bad!

Friday is a rest day, then Relays on Saturday and Individuals on Sunday.  Go Team BC!

Race Team Update

Biathlon BC Cup 3 at Burns Lake is now in the books.  With gusty winds on Saturday (even some shooting mats blew off the range) and cold, clear skies on Sunday (everything delayed by an hour, as it was -30C in the wee hours of the morning), it was a challenging weekend for athletes and coaches alike.  Three of our athletes made the long trek north: Colton, Natalie and Kira.  The folks at Ominica Ski Club put on a fabulous event as always, complete with live entertainment at the Banquet and a Sasquatch Biathlete skiing through the range on Sunday!

In the sprint on Saturday, Colton narrowly missed out on first place by 6 seconds, but strong prone shooting on Sunday sent him away in the lead in the Pursuit to bring back a first place finish.

Our Senior Girls did great as usual, with Natalie finishing third and second, Kira finishing 5th and 4th.   so everyone in the top 5 and 4 podiums – that is another great result!

Next up: the Biathlon BC Championships, right here at Telemark.

Telemark Biathlon Race Season Update – Great Results!

We are at the half-way point of the Biathlon BC Cup circuit and Telemark has been posting some very impressive results.  After a cold and snowy race weekend in Prince George, the team enjoyed a warmer and sunnier weekend at the Whistler Olympic Park this past weekend.

l-r Rory, Natalie, Colton, Coach Chris, Danica, Kira and Makenna

Prince George had some ups and downs.  Biathlon is a complex sport and when everything goes right it can be amazing!

For Kira, Makenna and Rory, this was their first BC Cup race in the Senior Category carrying rifles rack-to-rack and shooting standing as well as prone.  All competed very well, with Makenna placing second in the Pursuit on Sunday!

Danica had one of those amazing weekends when everything goes perfectly, and she placed first in both races! Natalie had one of those weekends where she raced strong but a couple of mistakes proved costly and ended up getting disqualified.

Colton narrowly missed the podium in the Youth Men category, placing 4th in both races.

So off to Whistler and again superb results by the team!

Our Senior Girls again pulled off several podium finishes!  On Saturday, Natalie placed first and Makenna third, Danica fourth; on Sunday Natalie again placed first and Danica placed third, Makenna fourth.  Kira and Rory also had excellent race weekends, again placing in the top 10 in their categories on both days.  Colton once again just missed the podium with two fourth place finishes.

Danica now leads the Senior Girls BC Cup points standing.  Next up: Biathlon BC Cup 3 in Burns Lake this coming weekend.
