      Canada will be represented by Dahria Beatty, Lenny Valjas and Bob Thompson. Emily Nishikawa and Alex Harvey are back in Canada recovering from the Tour de Ski and preparing for the World Championships.

      Temperatures are expected to be in the +5 deg. C. range with periods of rain over the weekend, which could make for some soggy race conditions.

      The knockout rounds of the individual sprints take place at 07:20 EST and Sunday's Team Sprint Finals are at 06:45.
