Preview of the Biathlon Race

The 2010 New York Biathlon Championships will feature a strong field. USA Today oddsmaker has taken a break from scouting racers for the upcoming Patch Sprint and has handicapped the biathlon field for the NY Biathlon Champs. Sherridan states, “As seen in the Olympics, weather could come in to play, if a squall arrives mid race expect the advantage to go to the early starters.”
