Tim Burke ended his World Cup biathlon season on a high note Sunday with a ninth-place finish in the 15-kilometer mass start race in Oslo, Norway.

Burke, a Paul Smiths native who lives in Lake Placid, covered the course in 41 minutes, 50.7 seconds with one miss at the shooting range. Overall points leader Martin Fourcade won the race in 40:59.9 with one penalty, followed by Dominik Landertinger of Austria in 41:06 and Jakov Fak of Slovenia in 41:32.8.

Lowell Bailey of Lake Placid placed 28th with a time of 43:56.2 and four penalties.

Bailey finished the World Cup season with 434 total points, which ranked him 19th overall. Burke was 25th overall with 335.

In Sunday's 12.5k women's mass start, Susan Dunklee of Barton, Vt. finished 18th. She was coming off a sixth-place result in Saturday's 10k pursuit.

"In the mass start, I struggled with the shooting and had one particularly poor standing stage," Dunklee said. "But I finished with a clean stage and strong fight on the last loop. I had a good run of things at the end of the season and will be headed into the summer with a lot of good motivation."

Bailey placed 14th in Saturday's 12.5k pursuit race with a time of 33:46.4 and three misses. Simon Elder of Austria won the race in 33:23.4.

Bailey and Burke are scheduled to take part in the an Olympian parade in Saranac Lake on Wednesday at 3:15 p.m. Annelies Cook (biathlon), Bill Demong (nordic combined) and Peter Frenette (ski jumping) are also expected to be in attendance.
