OBIK P14 (18/06/2015)
Category: Competition
Map/area: Puttåsen
Organiser: Thales
Distance: 5.94 km
Time: 49:14
Another good race, this time a long distance event on the new Puttåsen map.

1) Started with some slight hesitation/direction problems, was beaten by 5 s on this leg.

2) Pretty much perfect, very good direction made the control itself quite trivial.

3) A bit more complicated but full control.

4) My worst mistake today was when I left #3, I should have contoured SE instead of dropping down the steep hill, and then I made it worse by crossing the intermediate hill instead of going up the gully to the paths. I was 11 s slower than Richard Z-G (who ended up in second place) here.

5-6-7) Good.

8) Some hesitation, I should have gone a little bit higher and passed over the top of the knoll above the control.

9-Finish) All good, won all these legs, and the course itself by 8+ minutes.

bgulheim : Good race - good work, it should have been fun to see if a more direct line from the path to P10, before the knoll, to the right side of the line, how much that would have costed... :)
Knut : Another good race. Apart from the earlier comments, how about going more straight out of C5 down towards the lake, and simply go straight almost contouring to C11?
Terje Mathisen : C5: My intention was to go at an angle towards the path, but as I left the control I found a track, probably from Knut Valstads Minneløp this spring or a former Tur-O control, so I followed this to get a rest from the high & wet heather/blueberry.

C10: I considered going straight, and would probably have done so on a dry day. The slight left bend from where I left the path to the control was simply due to running where micro route choices looked most runnable.

C11: Here I would definitely have contoured on a drier day!
