Janet, I am a disaster at navigating the WOC website! Do you know what time the races start?

Edit: I really am very tired. Found it!

Team numbers, if you're watching on TV (I haven't been, just checking live results), are 19 US women, 20 Canadian women, 125 Canadian men, 127 US men. Those of you looking for other countries will have to go to the link above.

Nev-Monster:
Could this be Canada's top relay result with the women tomorrow?
For the Canadian men, 3 men in their prime years, time to move up the standings.
Jul 12, 2014 8:25 AM # 
Cristina:
Correction, the US team for the men should be Giacomo, Ethan, Eric.

What are the thick white lines with black borders in the north/east part of the map? Sorry, noob question
Jul 12, 2014 11:38 AM # 
Cristina:
Trenches.
Jul 12, 2014 11:39 AM # 
Cristina:
Not a noob question, it's not often you have a map with trenches from WWI!
Jul 12, 2014 11:40 AM #

Oh duhhh sorry young and stupid, didn't realize :)
Jul 12, 2014 11:41 AM #

@laurenbaade, don't apologize for not knowing something! (relevant xkcd)
Jul 12, 2014 11:44 AM # 
barb:
Samantha jumped up a bunch of places to 18
Jul 12, 2014 11:45 AM # 
backwoods:
What happened to Emily's finish? 7th at radio 4...but no finish time?
Jul 12, 2014 11:45 AM # 
barb:
Confused: Emily not showing finish time
Jul 12, 2014 11:45 AM # 
backwoods:
Oh! There she is!
Jul 12, 2014 11:45 AM # 
barb:
Oh nvm
Jul 12, 2014 11:46 AM #

Samantha finished 18, nice, pretty awesome run from Radio1 to Finish
Jul 12, 2014 11:53 AM #

Wow, super fast from Sam after the first section.

No TV, pooooooo.

Jul 12, 2014 12:01 PM # 
Cristina:
ndobbs this is the first day the web tv has actually worked well for me. what's wrong with yours?
Jul 12, 2014 12:02 PM # 
Cristina:

Jul 12, 2014 12:05 PM #

Wow, looks steep
Jul 12, 2014 12:06 PM # 
barb:
Yay, Alex - pulling slightly ahead, just through arena.
Jul 12, 2014 12:07 PM # 
barb:
Now to tackle that 3-min gap ahead of Alex's group
Jul 12, 2014 12:07 PM # 
ndobbs:
No live TV... bait and switch!
Jul 12, 2014 12:11 PM # 
Fly'n:
What the.. has anyone else got the 'live' TV, but it is live speaking but video from mid first leg, not live or matching the commentary?
Jul 12, 2014 12:12 PM # 
backwoods:
Louise in 10th at radio 3!!
Jul 12, 2014 12:14 PM # 
ndobbs:
@Fly'n, yeah, same for everyone. Sucks.
Jul 12, 2014 12:15 PM # 
Cristina:
Sam on NRK, it's just a delayed broadcast I guess.
Jul 12, 2014 12:16 PM # 
Fly'n:
what a f*&ken joke
Jul 12, 2014 12:17 PM # 
barb:
Alex punched in position 19 at Radio 3. Still near the group RUS FRA POL
Jul 12, 2014 12:21 PM # 
ndobbs:
Lizzie running really well!
Jul 12, 2014 12:21 PM # 
robplow:
svt has commentary that matches the pictures - they are going through legs 1 and 2 quickly and will catch up with 'live' sometime in leg 3
Jul 12, 2014 12:22 PM # 
Cristina:
yeah, web tv quickly catching up.
Jul 12, 2014 12:24 PM # 
ndobbs:
tracking cze but not lat? sigh
Jul 12, 2014 12:25 PM #

USA overtook RUS! Nice, Alex!
Jul 12, 2014 12:31 PM #

Will Tove recover from her mistake on the first loop?
Jul 12, 2014 12:32 PM # 
igor_:
Wow, it's going to be an exciting last loop.
Jul 12, 2014 12:32 PM # 
ndobbs:
Plenty of teams just ahead for Ali to chase down.
Jul 12, 2014 12:33 PM # 
barb:
There will be some running together from the three in the lead.
Jul 12, 2014 12:34 PM # 
stever:
Ooooo, Denmark with a bobble ... all together now?
Jul 12, 2014 12:34 PM # 
barb:
And, no forking
Jul 12, 2014 12:34 PM # 
Cristina:
Ooh, three leading teams all together now with only the unforked bit left! This is gonna hurt!
Jul 12, 2014 12:37 PM # 
dyee:
hi, barb!
Jul 12, 2014 12:38 PM # 
barb:
dave! How's Switzerland?

TV camera shows some insects...
Jul 12, 2014 12:38 PM # 
barb:
Do the runners know that there is no forking?
Jul 12, 2014 12:40 PM # 
Cristina:
The end of the last leg has to be unforked, but they won't know where that starts. They'll probably guess that it's after the arena.
Jul 12, 2014 12:41 PM # 
stever:
Taking different routes. Cool.
Jul 12, 2014 12:41 PM # 
Cristina:
Maja Alm split from the group and taking the (probably) better route alone.
Jul 12, 2014 12:41 PM # 
barb:
Ah.
I like DEN route left better than SWE SUI.
Edit: but I was wrong it seems
Jul 12, 2014 12:43 PM # 
ndobbs:
Lizzie went from 20th to 9th!
Jul 12, 2014 12:43 PM # 
Cristina:
There's a road up there that is on the printed maps. Wish someone would share a photo from yesterday so we could see exactly where it goes.
Jul 12, 2014 12:47 PM # 
barb:
SWE behind
Jul 12, 2014 12:49 PM # 
barb:
More struggling at #8. That was a real bugaboo today.
Jul 12, 2014 12:51 PM # 
stever:
Looks to be a SUI - DEN head to head sprint ... woah, over before it even started.
Jul 12, 2014 12:55 PM #

Giacomo!!!
Jul 12, 2014 12:58 PM #

No-one went left to 5? Sheep.
Jul 12, 2014 1:08 PM # 
ndobbs:
25 teams in 21 seconds after 8 minutes... forking...
Jul 12, 2014 1:11 PM # 
stever:
Sheep. But really fit fast sheep.
Jul 12, 2014 1:12 PM #

Ali punched Radio 4 in 17th, after AUS
Jul 12, 2014 1:20 PM #

Go Timo! Pasi motoring too!
Jul 12, 2014 1:57 PM #

Mais bien sur
Jul 12, 2014 1:58 PM #

Darren only 14s ahead of Khramov now!
Jul 12, 2014 2:06 PM # 
ndobbs:
Still has 4s, go Darren!!!
Jul 12, 2014 2:13 PM # 
stever:
Wow, great run by Pasi.
Jul 12, 2014 2:21 PM # 
stever:
TG in front already? Amazing.
Jul 12, 2014 2:32 PM #

Darren dropped some time at the end, changed over in 26th... on track for top 25? Come on, Conor!
Jul 12, 2014 2:34 PM # 
barb:
Here comes my favorite part
Jul 12, 2014 2:35 PM # 
undy:
The 2nd and 3rd groups are merged, good catch by the larger 3rd group.
Jul 12, 2014 2:38 PM # 
stever:
That 8-9-10 forking was significant. Can SWE hang on to win?
Jul 12, 2014 2:40 PM # 
ndobbs:
CAN 3s ahead of USA!
Jul 12, 2014 2:40 PM #

Yeah, Ethan!
Jul 12, 2014 2:42 PM #

Eric vs Eric
Jul 12, 2014 2:45 PM #

How many pesos are at stake?
Jul 12, 2014 2:45 PM # 
barb:
Wow, Bergman.
Jul 12, 2014 2:46 PM # 
undy:
GG only one taking the track route in 2nd group
Jul 12, 2014 2:50 PM # 
blairtrewin:
Surprised no-one has dropped to the road 15-16 (especially someone who thinks they might have to take a risk to break a pack up - or maybe everyone in this race thinks they can outsprint the others?).
Jul 12, 2014 2:51 PM # 
stever:
SWE crushing it.
Jul 12, 2014 2:55 PM # 
barb:
Eric Bone R1
Jul 12, 2014 2:56 PM # 
ndobbs:
Hey, Conor has a GPS!
Jul 12, 2014 2:58 PM # 
stever:
Whoops, CZE missed.
Jul 12, 2014 2:59 PM # 
ndobbs:
Wouldn't want to have to sprint Bostrom in the finish, but Olav seemed happy enough.
Jul 12, 2014 3:05 PM # 
TheInvisibleLog:
Bostrom missed it on his punch technique.
Jul 12, 2014 3:10 PM # 
ndobbs:
Pol doing better this year... 12th vs 22nd or some such.
Jul 12, 2014 3:10 PM # 
Becks:
It's a shame that they cut coverage while many teams are still out there. They must have records of the countries people come from when they pay for the stream - even just leaving the camera at the finish while people come in would be a nice thing to do. It's totally understand that stv or YLE would finish very soon, but the paid stream should continue.
Jul 12, 2014 3:13 PM #

Becks +1
Jul 12, 2014 3:16 PM #

Go Bone!!!
Jul 12, 2014 3:26 PM #

How's Conor on a sprint finish?
Jul 12, 2014 3:27 PM # 
ndobbs:
Agh, 1s behind BEL, 27th... should be enough for Div 2 next year. Well done, lads!
Jul 12, 2014 3:27 PM # 
blairtrewin:
It is.

As I've posted on the other thread, Kowalski coming through to 12th means that Poland survive (subject to confirmation) by the narrowest possible margin.
Jul 12, 2014 3:38 PM # 
BorisGr:
Eric Bone finishes in 28th! Awesome run! When is the last time US men beat Canada in the WOC relay?
Jul 12, 2014 3:45 PM # 
DarthBalter:
Eric, thank you! Beat all you could catch, for more needed just wings :)
Jul 12, 2014 4:30 PM # 
PG:
Good job by both the USA men's and women's team. Thought it was going to be a very long day when Sam was DFL at the first radio, but she had an amazing rest of her run. And for legs two and three, we were right there with the teams we should be with, but often haven't been in the past.

And good for the men too, especially Ethan's solid run (and punching all the controls -- it's now been enough days since Trento that we can razz him about it… :-) ), and then ditto for Eric, finishing it off very nicely.

I hope and assume we'll see more details on the USA Team Blog, which has been just great this year -- thanks Cristina!
Jul 12, 2014 5:07 PM # 
Giac:
So proud of my team-mates today, both men and women! Updates will come on the blog probably tomorrow. Go Team USA!!
