Pepa Miloucheva, who won gold at the 1994 World Ski Orienteering Championships, takes Pat Barber and Again Faster’s Jon Gilson through a day-long introduction to the sport of biathlon.
First, it’s a stint on the trail with Miloucheva to dial in the skiing, and Barber and Gilson find themselves in unfamiliar territory in a sport that takes a lifetime to master. Next, it’s on to the rifle range with Concept2’s Hannah Dreissigacker to learn more about the rifle, shooting positions and accuracy. Finally, the guys wrap it up with a bit of friendly competition.
