The West Yellowstone Ski Education Foundation (WYSEF) invites all mountain bikers and biathetes to register for the Mounatin Bike Biathlon at the Rendezvous Ski Trails on June 26, 2010. The race will consist of five biking laps totaling 12.5 kilometers and four shooting rounds. Everyone is welcome and no shooting experience is required.  A safety clinic, practice session, loaner rifles, and ammunition will be available for novices.  Experienced biathletes should bring their own rifles and will compete in the match division. All racers must provide their own bicycle and wear a helmet.  West Yellowstone is perfect for such a unique sport.  The Rendezvous Ski Trails provide superb, non-technical, single-track bike riding in the summer months and the biathlon range has 20 fully functional shooting lanes.  Prizes, fresh air, and lots of fun await.

Pre-registration is required.  Find more information and registration forms online at
