Some of the most exciting racing of the season lies ahead over the next three weeks.  The team competes next week in front of the King of Norway at the spectacular Holmenkollen venue in Oslo, then it's on to Sochi to race on the 2014 Olympic course. The World Cup final takes place the next week in its traditional venue Khanti-Mansysk, Siberia.

"The team was really strong at the World Championships and we are very excited for the final three weeks of World Cup competition," said US Biathlon President and CEO Max Cobb.  "The chance to compete on the Olympic course in Sochi is exciting for the team and traditionally we have been strong on the courses at the Holmenkollen and Khanti-Mansysk."

World Cup 7 in Oslo opens February 28th with the men's 10k sprint. A schedule for World Cup 7 is available here. All events will be webcast live at www.biathlonworld.com. Congratulations, and good luck Team USA.
