THE SHOOT OUT 2020-2021
WHAT IS A BIKEATHLON?
The Bikeathlon is a winter sport that combines cross-country skiing and rifle shooting. We are fascinated by this sport and its combination of physical exertion and calm precision. Because we live in the desert skiing is impractical, so we are proud to introduce: BIKEATHLON.
Athletes will compete on a road course completing 12, 15 or 18 half mile long laps depending on their category. They will stop 3 times to shoot rifles from standing, kneeling and prone positions. The race is timed and bonuses are awarded based on the rifle shooting score. The goal of the race is the fastest overall time.
