Long Distance Qualification   Leave a comment

This one counts as two successes and one pending. Guy and Alexey took 17th and 18th place respectively in their heats, with almost identical times – outside the final but definitely very good results, an improvement over past performances, and a good sign for the future and even the rest of this week. Pavel had a bad run, with lots of mistakes, but still qualified for the final from 15th place and on the basis of his speed should be aiming for a top 30 placing on Tuesday. His route is here (and there's the GPS tracking on the internet as well).

In the afternoon the team rested and I ran in the open race – I'll publish a video and some comments on the mapping later in the week. The race used a small part of the WOC terrain and my impression was that it was very fast, but also tricky in places, as expected.

Now for the Sprint. It's going to be an easier day for me as coach, as the races are closer and shorter. I just hope I won't be just a spectator at the final…
