This morning I got this note from Casey:
Training in Canmore has been great so far. Skis are awesome. I finally got them all skied in and they are feeling good. Haven't done any specific testing but the RDGs were running super well the other day when it was about -5c and sunny. Next week ill do some more specific testing for the races and can let you know how things run.
Casey in on the USBA National B Team, and is affiliated with Maine Winter Sports Center, though the locals here in the Methow Valley will always consider him a homey. He skis on Madshus skis and boots.
Casey has the gear geek gene that seems to go with biathlon, and he does a really good job of taking care of his Madshus boards, and also seems to have good objectivity when it comes to evaluating skis and ski testing.
You can follow Casey on his blog.
