Orienteering race 26:44 [4] 3.5 km (7:38 / km)

Day 2 of North West Cup in Italy. Today went really well and I was very happy with my race. It was a nice middle distance with many short, technical legs on a very rocky and hilly area. No real errors only slowing down to attack the control correctly on the earlier legs. For the last 1/3 of the race, I was running with a Spanish 2003 kid who started 3 minutes ahead of me who was a pretty fast runner! I ended up winning today which I was really happy about considering it was M16.

Here is my map:

Orienteering race 7:48 [4] 1.1 km (7:05 / km)

Second race of the day. The night event tonight was in the town of Sestriere, where we are staying, so 1km run to the start from my bed! The course was very enjoyable and technical so there were a lot of very fast decision points. I came 2nd after Liam Thiels, Belgium. He did 6.56 but you can see his past results the days before! No prizes for tonight though ;(

Orienteering race 46:26 [4] 4.7 km (9:53 / km)

Today was Day 1 of the Italian North West Cup around the France / Italy border.
The area for today's long distance was called Monti Della Luna which we think means "Mountain of the Moon"! That tells you something about the altitude! For good experience and courses I am doing M16 for the event.
My race went well overall but only the slopes knocked some of my bearings a bit. I was slightly hesitant into number 12 just trying to interpret the detail.

Orienteering race 20:40 [5] 3.1 km (6:40 / km)

Today was a great middle distance for Day 5. It was in extremely steep ski slopes but most of the course was contouring. There were 17 controls so compass was essential (Jim ;) )
I was really happy with the race; I made only one real mistake (30-40 seconds) by going round a large thicket the wrong way! Otherwise only a couple of hesitations made my total mistake time around 1 min. Today I was 2nd, 35 seconds behind Benjamin Wey :( but he is essentially Swiss No. 1 so I'm happy.
Came 3rd overall by fairly large gaps and satisfied with the week of great orienteering.

Orienteering race 29:44 [4] 4.1 km (7:15 / km)

Day 4 of O'Cerdanya today was a long distance on fairly exerting terrain.
Only 1 error at number 2 due to vague path along a slope (approx. 30 seconds). I felt pretty good today but as we had some long path legs, the better runners on my course could catch up on some legs, something to work on.
Came 3rd today so fairly happy but tired even though Day 4!

1 PM

Orienteering race 27:29 [4] 3.2 km (8:35 / km)

Today was Day 3 in runnable, semi-open forest.
It was a middle distance but not as technical as I would have wanted. Made a 3 minute mistake on number 6 (its the unknown curse of No. 6!) due to not clear attack-point off a stream,which I wasn't happy about. Otherwise a fairly steady race with only a couple of hesitations.
I came 5th today so not great overall.
