WC-3 Middle in Oslo
WC-3 Middle, Fossum, Oslo Today the 3rd World Cup race this season was held with a Middle distance in connection with O-festivalen in Fossum west of Oslo.

I did an OK race, and came 25th, 3 minutes behind Carl Waaler Kaas and Peter Öberg who shared the victory. The terrain was not exactly my favourite, and I lost a little time several places plus had a mistake to the 9th control. Results, splits and GPS-tracking

Tomorrow it will be Chasing start over Long distance, and I am looking forward to a long and tough race in the heat.

19th place for Wing in Jukola
Jukola, Salo, Finland One week ago the World’s biggest orienteering relay Jukola was held in Mikkeli in Finland, with about 15000 participants.

Wing had a strong team, and hoped to do better then last years 39th place, that was the best result for the club so far. All the runners on our team did good performances, without any big mistakes, and I could run out on the last leg as 27th runner. I was able to catch up several runners, and could finish on a 19th place. Result menu, team results, times for 7th leg and my splits

In the Venla relay for women Wing did also a great performance. After the first leg Marte Reenaas changed over as first runner, exactly as Elise Egseth did on 10mila, and our girls finished on 11th place. The previously best result was 22nd place last year, so both teams have the right progress. Results

Maps from NOC Sprint
NOC Sprint Qual, Salo, Finland Wednesday last week the Sprint in the Open Nordic Championship was held in Salo in Finland. The race was also the 2nd World Cup race this season. The 1st WC-race was the Middle distance the day before, but I was not running that race.

The Qualification for the Sprint was held in the morning. I did an OK race, and finished as 7th runner in my heat, 21 seconds behind Emil Wingstedt. The 11 best in each of the 3 heats qualified for the Final. Results and splits

NOC Sprint Final, Salo, FinlandThe Final was held form the city centre the same evening, and started well for me. But on the long leg to the 6th control I lost 24 seconds to the best split time. I had decided to run straight on out of the 5th control and in the open forest along the river. But it was a lot of nettles there, and I changed my mind and went back to the bridge to the left of the line. I guess I lost 10 – 15 seconds out of the control and 10 more seconds because I took the 6th control from behind, instead of running through the forest straight to the line the last part of the leg.

To the 11th control I lost 10 more seconds, because I had a bad direction and past the control on the right hand side. Many runners lost some seconds here. To the 14th and 15th control it was also some seconds faster to run to the right, compared to my route to the left.

My result was a 16th place, 1.08 behind Daniel Hubmann. To the 3rd place it was “only” 31 seconds, and that could have benn possible with a quite good run. But Hubmann and Khramov were in their own class, as they also were in the WOC Sprint last year. Results and splits

Map from NOC Relay
NOC Relay, Salo, Finland Today the Relay in the Open Nordic Championship in Finland was held from the same place as yesterdays Long distance, but in an other part of the terrain.

I was running the 1st leg for the Norwegian 2nd team, and did a good race without any mistakes. I was among the leading teems until the 8th control. On the 9th and 10th control I had different forking from the other teams I had been together with, and could change over as 4th team, 18 seconds behind Finland in the lead.

Holger Hott did a good second leg, and sent out Anders Skarholt on the last leg as the 4th team, 23 seconds behind. Anders did unfortunately some mistakes, but finished as best Norwegian team on a 7th place, 4 minutes behind Sweden. Results, splits, map with all forkings and GPS tracking from last leg

Map from NOC Long distance
NOC Long, Salo, Finland Today the Open Nordic Championship in Salo in Finland started with the Long distance. The terrain here is nice, and the best is almost always to run close to the line between the controls.

On today’s race I was running quite well the first half of my race, and before the butterfly loops started I held the 13th place, 2 minutes behind Peter Öberg, in the lead, and only 1.26 behind Daniel Hubmann, who won the race. But on the short leg to the 13th control I lost almost 2 minutes, and did some other small mistakes on the butterfly loops.

In the end of the race I also lost too much time to the 24th, 26th and 28th control, and ended on a disappointing 27th place, 9 minutes behind Hubmann. It was close between the first runners, but then quite big gaps down to the 9th place. Had I been runing 3 minutes faster and been around 10th place I would have been satisfied with my race. Results and splits

Tomorrow the Relay is held, and I will run the 1st leg on the Norwegian 2nd team, with Holger Hott and Anders Skarholt on the two last legs. You can follow the races live on the NOC 2009 homepage.

Trondheim Sprintcup Final
Trondheim Sprintcup Final, Kuhaugen Picturs from Trondheim Sprintcup Final. Photo: Sindre HaverstadYesterday the Final of Trondheim Sprintcup was arranged on Kuhaugen. The course was really good with several route choices and butterfly loops two different places with short technical legs.

I was starting as 2nd runner, 3 seconds behind Chris Forne. To the 2nd control Chris was running to the right and lost 15 seconds compared to my choice to the left. The rest of the race I was in the lead, but both Chris and Mathias Bjugan, who started 16 seconds behind me, was close behind and could partly see me. To the 26th control I went down to early and lost 15 seconds. But Mathias did the same as me, and I could finish as first runner, 10 seconds before Mathias, who won the junior class.

In the Women’s class Elise Egseth won with a huge margin after an impressive race. Results and splits

Trondheim Sprintcup-4, Nyborg Trondheim Sprintcup-5, Flatåsen You can also find maps from the two previous races in Trondheim Sprintcup.

The 4th race was held from Nyborg. Since the race was the day before Trondheim Open I was not pushing full speed. But my technical performance was good, except to the 17th control, where I both took a bad route choice and missed the control. My result was a 2nd place, 19 seconds behind Francois Gonon. Results and splits

The 5th race was held on Flatåsen. My race was OK, but Lars Skjeset was running really good, and was beating me with 32 seconds. I lost most of the time on the butterfly loops. Results and splits

Norwegian Selection races for NOC
NOC-selection, Sprint NOC-selection, Middle Last weekend the Norwegian Selection races for the Open Nordic Championship was arranges by Oppsal, in Østmarka east of Oslo.

Thursday’s Sprint was held from Haraløkka. The course was nice, but I did a few small mistakes and my speed was not the best either. To the 2nd control I lost 5 seconds compared to the route choice to the left, and to the 15th control I took a bad direction and lost 10 seconds. My result was a 5th place, 32 seconds behind Anders Skarholt, who did a great race. Results and splits

Saturdays Middle distance went really bad for me. I lost 1 minute already to the 1st control, and 45 seconds to the 14th control (I was only I few meters from the control before I started to run in the wrong direction). I had also problems to find the best route on some of the legs, and was climbing too much up and down. Physical I was not able to push so hard either, and lost time on the running speed. My result was a 19th place (13th of the Norwegians), 4.56 behind Carl Waaler Kaas. Results and splits

NOC-selection, Long Me from the Middle distance. Photo: Snorre Veggan Sundays Long was my best race during the weekend. The longer legs made it possible to choose routes around (partly on paths), and I did no big mistakes. My result was a 7th place 3.42 behind Anders Nordberg. Results and splits

As I wrote I was not satisfied with my physical shape during the weekend, and it was not as good as some weeks ago. But during the Long distance I felt strong the whole course, and the running was almost going easier the longer I was running. I guess it is because I have been training quite much and hard the last period, and that my shape will be good to NOC in Finland in two weeks if I train a bit easier the coming week.

Master of Technology
The last weeks have been quite busy with a lot of school work. Last week I finally delivered my master thesis, so now I am a Master of Technology after almost 9 years of studies at NTNU. Geomatics is the field I have been studying, and the subject of my master work was “Correlation analysis of real time GPS data”.

Trondheim Open, Sprint Trondheim Open, Middel But I have also spent time on orienteering training and local competitions. Two weeks ago the Norwegian National Team had a Training Camp in Trondheim as preparation for WOC 2010. We also participated in the 3 days competition Trondheim Open organized by my club Wing OK.

Fridays Sprint was held on a brand new map around Rosenborg’s football stadium Lerkendal. I thought my race went well, and I finished on the best time. But I was disqualified because I had punched a wrong control before my 7th control, and passed the 7th control on the map with a few meters without punching it. Jon Pedersen won the race. Results and splits

Trondheim Open, Chasing start, part 1 Trondheim Open, Chasing start, part 2 On Saturday’s Middle distance I did a good race, except to the 3rd control where I lost almost 1 minute. My result was a 4th place, 39 seconds behind Anders Nordberg. Results and splits

Even if I was disqualified in the Sprint I was able to run Sunday’s Chasing start. But I lost 3 minutes to the winning time of the sprint, and was starting as 14th runner, 2.34 behind Audun Weltzien. My race went well, and I climbed to a 5th place, 2.28 behind Francois Gonon. My only big mistake was to the 14th control, where I lost 1 minute on a bad route choice. Results and splits

Vårløpet in Stjørdal
Vårløpet, Stjørdal Today the competition Vårløpet (the Spring race) was held in Stjørdal, 30 km east of Trondheim. The terrain is quite bushy, but the course made is possible to choose routes partly on paths on many of the legs.

I did a good race, and won in front of Mathias Bjugan and Johan Ivarsson. My only big mistake was to the 11th control, where I lost 45 seconds. Results and splits

Trondheim Sprintcup-3
 Trondheim Sprintcup-3, Brundalen Tonight the third race of Trondheim Sprintcup was arranged on a new map in Brundalen in Trondheim. Because I have been running many hard sessions the last weeks my goal was to do an offensive and good technical race, without pushing 100 % on the longer and easier running legs. I succeed quite well, and finished on 2nd best time, 12 second behind Lars Skjeset.

But when my emit card was checked after the finish the punching from the 12th control was missing, even if I had been there and punched on the control. The punching unit was perhaps old with a weak signal and I have been punching too fast. Strange, because I always put the emit card totally down in the unit, and have never had any problems before. Luckily it was not an important race today.

Elise Egseth won the Women’s class in front of Guro Flatekvel. Results and splits
