“I’m Catharine Pendrel and I’m a cross-country mountain biker.” Fans of mountain biking need no introduction to the Olympic medallist, world champion and three-time World Cup overall winner from Canada. Pendrel, 36, is also a masters world champion in skiing after winning her age group in the 9 seconds behind her husband’s team and determined to win bragging rights at the post-race party. She returned twenty minutes later, laughing about a flat tire that cost her team...

In an effort to showcase the North Americans competing at this week’s International Ski Federation (FIS) 2017 USANA Nordic Junior World Championships and U23 Cross Country World Championships at Soldier Hollow in Midway, Utah, we asked those qualifying athletes several questions about themselves — actually, we had them fill in the blanks. Here we have 19-year-old Philippe Boucher, of the Centre National d’Entraînement Pierre-Harvey (CNEPH), a.k.a. the Pierre-Harvey National Training Centre and Canadian Junior National...

Sophie Caldwell broke her funny bone just over a week ago during a team mountain-bike session in Bend, Ore., and while it's no laughing matter, she's found humor in the situation. "I actually accidentally found myself in a spin class for senior citizens and it was one of the top ten sweatiest workouts of my life," she explains. "We did stage 14 of the Tour of Italy."

What do skiing, mountain biking, sunburns, snowstorms, rainbows and lots of roundabouts all have in common?  They can all be found in Bend, Oregon in the month of May. For the first time in recent memory, the US Biathlon team sent a group of athletes ...

Tad Elliott’s busy schedule didn’t stopped him from picking up an U-23 title this July at the U.S. Mountain Bike Nationals in Granby, Colorado. “It went really well. My goal was to win but it was still a surprise. Everyone else was so strong,” said the 22-year old. After winning the U-23 title, he also raced the short track race in the Elite Men category. In the middle of the race, he was in 6th...

Alex Harvey’s training schedule is already busy, but he’s still taking some time out to squeeze in the 2010 Canadian National Mountain Biking Championships in Canmore in mid-July. “It’s a good opportunity since I’m already here,” he said in a phone interview. “It’ll be a really hard workout for me.” Harvey was a very promising mountain bike racer in the junior category, but when the time came to move up to senior, he had to...

After Tad Elliot skied his way to a second place finish in yesterday’s 15k freestyle, the cross country cognoscenti didn’t quite express the same degree of confusion as they did over Tyler Kornfield’s fourth place in the sprint. After some solid racing at last year’s West Yellowstone SuperTours and a trip to the U-23 championships, Elliot has a little more name recognition. But it’s safe to say that there probably weren’t many people here in...

Individual qualifying for the World Cup Four-Cross event in Bromont took place last night, and it was won by American Jill Kintner (unaffiliated) and France’s Romain Saladini (Team Sunn). Riders started individually and did a quick time trial down the course (the Quebecois announcer called it “contre-la-montre,” French for “against the watch”). Times ranged from 51 seconds for the top men to about a minute for the women. The course is very exciting and spectator-friendly–there...
