GRP Biathletes Selected to Race World and IBU Cups
Last Updated: 06.Nov.2018
This morning the U.S. Biathlon Association announced who earned race starts for Period 1 on the World Cup and the IBU Cup. Susan Dunklee and Clare Egan were pre-qualified for the World Cup based on last years results, but the remaining start positions were decided using rollerski trials from last week in Solder Hollow, Utah and this summer in Jericho, Vermont.
Emily Dreissigacker will join Susan and Clare on the World Cup which kicks off December 2nd in Pokljuka, Slovenia. These three GRP women plus Joanne Reid (who was pre-qualified) will compete in Slovenia, but only three athletes will continue on to World Cup 2 in Hochfilzen, Austria. The fourth, yet-to-be-determined athlete, will join the IBU Cup squad in Ridnaun-Val Ridanna, Italy.
Hallie Grossman, Kelsey Dickinson, Alex Howe, and Jake Brown were named to the IBU Cup team for Period 1 and will start their season at IBU Cup #2 in Ridnaun on December 13th. They will then continue racing through IBU Cup #3 in Obertilliach, Austria.
