Aha, Zhu Mingyue finally has a different fork from Sweden and Czech, and drops from 3rd to 16th!

Great run by Jo Allison to change 6th, 1:20 off lead

TV is going, looks like a beautiful day there with blue skies and a few fluffy clouds. (http://www.ceskatelevize.cz/vysilani/ and click on CT4 SPORT and then 09:45, little pomale window works better) Seems to be somewhat condensed semi-live highlights, as we're still looking at a train of first-leg runners.

Tracking supposedly live too, but my browser doesn't recognise the link dammit. Shame coz it sounds fascinating right now with CZand NOR taking a different route to the top 4 on a log leg - I won't apologise for kiss of deathing them until that legs over.

Tractrac website says only the men's will be available to the public. Sigh.

However apparently TV hasn't got any cameras where the leaders are, cos they've just been broadcasting the tracking map for the last ten minutes. The blurry dots move slowly across the screen :-)

Will be a close finish but looks like Finland might defend - I'd back Minna over Jansson or Riabkina now she can keep her head together in these situations! And sorry Norway, sorry Czech (though they might not be out of medals)

Aussie prob safe in top 10 though Ewelsy has a bit of a fight over which particular position.

Holy moly, the Minna dot is miles ahead of a swarm of euro flag dots!

Liis battling with china and britain for the last spot in the top 10

Show Profile  onemanfanclub Posted: 20 July 2008, 8:23 PM  
gold finland, silver russia, bronze sweden

but more importantly a sighting of the phrase "that is for sure" on the text commentary.

Either the last few radio controls are on forks or the system was completely crapping itself towards the end of the 3rd leg

Yes, that sighting was noted here to!

Was wondering where Kathryn Ewels had got to, but she's now popped up again just in front of the Latvian (and apparently in 4th place at radio #6, wah-hey!)

And the men are off! Mike up in the pack at the first radio...

Show Profile  onemanfanclub Posted: 20 July 2008, 9:07 PM  
After the 1st long split, therefore some indication of normality - Mike 21st, 3.5 mins off lead, Shep just in front

NZ 22nd at first changeover, just under 6min behind. I believe it's Ross next, he could get at least a few places into the top 20. RUS was temporarily DQ but back in now - keep an eye on that one
