Listen to this story
Saturday in Turin, two ski racers from the Adirondacks will represent the U.S. in the biathlon. Tim Burke from Paul Smiths and Lowell Bailey from Lake Placid out-skied more mature American teammates to qualify for the exclusive 12.5 kilometer pursuit. Bill McKibben divides his time between the Adirondacks and Vermont. He spent a year training with America's best ski racers and wrote a book about the experience called Long Distance. Bill told Brian Mann that Burke and Bailey represent the future of America's biathlon program.
