Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Nice Norwegian terrainTake a look at the map from today's Norwegian selection race at Kongsberg. The M19-20 course with Oystein Sorensen's winning route is shown.
Here is a quick translation of a bit of Sorensen's analysis of his race:
...I lost a few seconds on the way to the 4th control and on the route choice to the 6th. To the 10th, I was defensive and went around the hills too much after crossing the road, and on the last legs I could have pushed myself harder...
Sorensen criticized his route to 10, but when I looked at the splits I saw that he had the best time for the leg. He gained 31 seconds over the guy who finished 2nd overall and 25 seconds over the guy who finished 3rd.
Poking around the results page, I noticed that Sandy Hott-Johansen finished 2nd in F21E2. The race had two elite classes and Sandy ran the second elite class. I can't tell how good a result this is, but it is always cool to see a North American close to a win. posted by Michael | 7:27 PM
