That's the main race of the day so, it's what the fans will be turning up for!

Think he got head hunted by some Finns

Sure who isn't a victim of that these days! Hubmann, Lundanes, Sild (*2) and possibly Pinker!

That's what you get for having the next two WOCs in the Baltics.

I think their transfer was assured one they realised that I was a member.

I think they just wanted to hang out with John F, but they're a bit slow. Hi to Silds for me.

@Roar looks like our teams will at least be starting close to one another! LS37 are 301 and OK Linne are 312.

And then how do the changeovers actually happen? It seems complicated. Only leg 3 start as a group of 4 and then the rest start when a runner from the previous leg finishes? Thatd make it very tricky to get the right maps in later 4person legs then.

From memory, the 4 person legs have 1 person start after 1 person finishes the previous leg. So once the first leg 4 runner finishes, you send out your slowest leg 5 runner, in the hope that all 4 runners will finish reasonably close to each other.

I don't think it matters which map from your leg you take, so long as all 4 people on your leg do one of your team's courses each.

Yup you got it. Not that I've done it before but that's what people tell me.
So if you are 5A then you go out after the first leg 4 runner comes back, then 5B and so on, but it doesn't matter which leg 4 runner it was, just the order they come back. When you finish you take the top most leg 6 map (there could possibly be leg 5 maps still there) and hand that over.
