Thank you for this honest and insightful write-up of your Tiomila leg. It was an amazing battle to watch, and you never gave up, trying new attacks the whole way. You are a great champion, and I can't wait to see what you and KR can do at Jukola!

Thanks for the write-up, many of us like to know what's happening at the front!
I sometimes plan relays, I know its usually constrained by the arena, but I have a question for you ... do you think its better racing to end the relay with a series of short legs (like here), or would a longer leg with routechoice be better?

Thanks all! At least, it seems it was an entertaining morning for many watchers.

@graeme: It is really hard to say, probably depend of the terrain. I would say that longer legs offer more possibilities to escape, as shorter legs usually means slower speed.

The World Cup in Liberec, in 2011, was a great example to spread runners. You got a new map at the central control of each butterfly. The forking orders were according to your position at that point of the race = maximun spreading.

Though, I am not sure it would really make sense to have this kind of forking at the end of a relay.
