Unless you already understand how the elements of biathlon come together as
an event, I'd recommend first planning to attend (or even better, to
volunteer at) a CBC race. There you'll see how it all works and you'll find
lots of friendly people to show you some of the specific safety practices,
training, equipment, and techniques involved.

I hope you'll love it!

Fred
