World AR Champs Sweden/Norway

Show Profile  Michael Posted: 16 August 2006, 7:10 AM  
Begins today. Website Believe that night navigation is absent this year, but maybe there'll be some tricky mapwork in the caving...

7 out of 40 teams with kiwis:
Orion Health (Stu, Brent)
Port Nelson/Grizzly Tours
Buff Sweden
Nike Powerblast (Aaron, Sara)

Aaron and Sara are in Golite/Timberland, Richard Ussher is in the Nike team

Sections E and N involve orienteering, but can't find individual section times.

Is it just me or did Team Multitude Salomon take just over 2 hours to get to checkpoint 14 on an estimated 6 hr leg while the leaders took just under 5 hours.

Yeah its pretty bad, compared to the Primal quest and the WOC tracking systems...but better than the Southern Traverse!

Press release from Geoff Hunt ARWS Director August 16: Japanese watch Casio has become the official watch of the Adventure Racing World Series on the eve of the fourth Adventure Racing World Championships in Sweden.

Would that be the Lapp-split model then?

Not sure Michael?

Top teams have finished the Orienteering section. The course setter said a national runner would take about 2 hours. Team Finland with a former top orienteer raced through it in 2:40, not bad half way through an Aventure race, Golite and Nike took about 3:10 starting and finishing around the same time. Biggest loosers were FJS that left first while other teams slept before it, that took 5:19 and are now down in 8th

Team Golite in 2nd/3rd but both Nike and Finland have slept.

Nike/Powerblast has won - contains kiwi Richard Ussher. Golite/T and Orion Health can't be far away from finishing, currently listed 4th/5th. Port Nelson has made it into the top 20 (19th).

Rob do you keep forgetting your passwords?

The GPS tracking is shithouse but reading the times on the website, it looks like Orion must be nearing the finish.

In 5th place. Awesome.
