Outside of Lund as you approach on E22 there is a sign I love and you will love it too. It reads: "Welcome to Flatland". Of course it's in Swedish but it translates well.

I spent a few months there, it is a really nice town. The club is (or at least was 30 years ago) quite active. I did some mapping at a Lunds OK map called Romeleåsen. Nice, but not at all typical Scandinavian. I also see lots of MTBO training in and around Lund on social media.

When I moved up to Stockholm, I discovered that my few months in Lund had a big advantage. I was one of the few foreigners who could mostly understand people speaking Swedish from Skåne.

WOC2023 is in Switzerland right?!

I don’t recall Skåne being referred to as Swedish Alps before.

@Hammer, you will remember that non-obvious training is some of the best kind. After all, if you just do whatever everyone else does, you will only get the usual results. To get better than average results, you must do something different. ; )

Even as I write, orienteers from literally around the world are flocking to Laramie to undergo an extended period of running in the snow and sage at high altitude, all as part of their rigorous preparations for Urban orienteering in Denmark in 2022.
