Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Some heart rate curvesTake a look at the heart rate curve for a cyclist in the team time trial at the TDF.
Take a look at the heart rate curve for Pasi Ikonen during an O' race.
The two curves are quite similar. Both the time trialist and the orienteer hit a high rate quickly and stayed there. Pasi didn't have a very good race and you can see his curve drop at a couple of places. Pasi wrote:
Almost 8min mistakes, disappointed but physically it seems good towards NOC. I "only" have to learn how to find the
controls... Lots of mistakes. You can easily see the two biggest ones.
Without those mistakes, I'd bet Pasi's curve would be difficult to distinguish from the time trialist.
Take a look at a cyclist's heart rate curve from a road stage at TDF; quite different.
