EOC Sprint – maps from Qual and Final
Yesterday morning the European Championship in Latvia started with Sprint Qualification in Ventspils. I did a good race in the beginning, and was on a 3rd place in my heat on the 10th control. But to the 12th control I did two mistakes, lost 17 seconds, and felled to a 10th place. Lars Skjeset and I were the only Norwegian men who qualified to the final. But we had 3 more runners who were only one or two second from qualifying.
The Sprint Final was arranged the same afternoon. I did some smaller mistakes in the beginning, but was running well after the spectator control, and finished on an 8th place. I was really tight around me on the result list, but 11 seconds up to a medal and 35 seconds up to the winner Emil Wingstedt. Results
To the first control I had planed to run to the left of the private area before the control, but when I came there it was a preliminary fence that stopped me, and had to turn around and run on the other side of the private area. I lost 9 seconds to the fastest split time, not a good start in a sprint race. (The organizer said that the fence had been put up same day as the race and that they did not know about it…) My other mistake was to the 3rd control, where I lost 16 seconds. The rest of the course went well, and from the spectator control to the finish only Wingstedt and the bronze medalist Andrey Khramov was running faster then me.
