Then the best of British to you Lizzie. Ignoring the DSQ's, looks like Ross and Chris have qualified, best wishes also to Tane, Lara and Rita.

Oz 1 man and 2 women well done. Do I see Brazil there with both sexes? Is this the first representation of South America at this level?

Nice area. Can anyone think of a place where we could combine campus and forest on the same map? I see lots of uncrossable fences and that suggests an idea - temporary uncrossable fencing (tape) which is changed from event to event, effectively changing the terrain.

Chris and Ross both qualify! Chris 12th in b with a little time loss on a route choice through some green. Ross had a little time loss too. Back at the hotel now waiting for final.
Both C heats had a different route to 1 from the A and B heats which rsulted in the slightly longer times in C

Looks like it's official now, Ross and Chris through - think I was looking exactly when the update unDSQing the DSQs came in. Fading quickly so I guess I'll be missing the final, but in the mean time can somebody please tie Ross's shoes to him? ;-)

And tell Chris that just because he likes bashing through the green it's not always the fastest. :-)

Great photos Tom. http://thomasreynolds.wordpress.com/

Did any of the Kiwis get tripped up by the gap in a fence that wasn't a gap? ie uncrossable. 9-10 on Mens B. Graham Gristwood reckons he lost 40 secs.

Great work Chris and Ross, good start to the week. All the best to everyone for the rest of the races.

Was a tough qual this morning complete with spectator start...which tripped me up. After that I managed to string a few good legs together just losing time in the forest and on route choice a little. Ran hard on the route choices but don't think I've quite got the speed yet to mix it with the big boys. Chris and Ross both had good solid runs.
I wasn't affected by the fence/gate. Chris was in that heat, but I don't he was effected by it either.

Final was quite a spectacle with TV and big screens, spectator start/finish. Chris also ran well, Ross suffered a little up the hill to the fort, then almost ran off the edge of it on TV! He was a bit disappointed with his run and he made a mistake between the radio/TV control in the fort and finish.

Opening ceremony was interesting...a little bit weird and kinda wanted to make you cringe a little bit...Chris delivered the athletes oath in typical Chris Forne style! Cool to see him up there chosen as the one to do it.
