November is here, which means that there is less than one month to go until the start of the BMW IBU World Cup season from Oestersund, Sweden!
The IBU is continuing its tradition of opening the season with a Mixed Relay competition, which is on November 30th at 11:30 Eastern, 8:30 Pacific.
Teams are now training on snow in preparation for the new season, the highlight of which is the World Championships in Kontiolahti, Finland in March.
The latest post on the IBU website looks at some of the main contenders in the Mixed Relay and how some of the teams are preparing for the season.
This month the Biathlon Blog will be updating its list of athletes and conducting a careful analysis of who looks on form this year, as we prepare to unveil our 2014/2015 biathlon pool challenge!
