      1) Dec. 16,17 World Cup, Toblach, Italy

      This is the last race weekend before the Christmas break and the weekend features individual skate, distance races on Saturday and pursuit-start, classic races on Sunday.


      Devon and Alex will look to keep up their strong performances to date. The rest of the team will be looking for top 30, counting 4 per nation results to seal Olympic qualification, and to make a strong performance statement before possibly having to return to Canada and compete at the Haywood NorAm/Olympic trial races in Mont Ste. Anne in January.

      It's another weekend of racing and there are more Russian doping stories. Three more Russian athletes are under investigation  by the IOC...
