Looking for something new to try on your mountain bike? The West Yellowstone Ski Education Foundation is promoting the West Yellowstone Mountain Bike Biathlon in West Yellowstone, MT on June 22-23, 2013. The race combines mountain bike racing with target shooting, similar to a ski biathlon.
On Saturday, there will be a sprint race of 9k for adults and 4.5k for youth, and two shooting bouts. On Sunday, there is a 12k pursuit race for adults, 5k for youth.
For youth and novice participants, the event will provide safety clinics, rifles, and ammunition. No shooting experience is required to participate.
