How 3 days of sprints shook out at Biathlon Canada Team Trials and who's in the running for the remaining spots on its IBU World Cup team.
Hey Folks! Canadian World Cup/IBU Cup trials were this past week here in Canmore. They started off a little slow for me Tuesday, but I got back into the swing of racing pretty quick. Thursday, I won the Woman’s sprint, and Friday I was 3rd in the modified relay distance sprint. The teams have been chosen, and I’m stoked to say I’ll be heading over to Europe for the World Cup on November 22! Thanks to Salomon Nordic for my speedy skis, LEKI for my sweet poles, and Osler, Frank and Pat Foran and Lifesport Calgary for the support. Big thanks to Bryan Dickson awesome for the photos!

Trials has officially wrapped up! We both had great racing the past several days, and we are looking forward to traveling to Sjusjoen, Norway where we will participate in the Norwegian trials races as a part of our final prep work before beginning the new season. A big thank you to everyone who has supported us to this point, and we hope to keep the good results coming in a couple of weeks when the World Cup season starts. #teamcanada #anotherbestday #julbo #roadtopyeongchang
