The Sprint Race

We both had clean runs in the sprint and reasonable results. The winner was still close to 4 minutes ahead!

Dylan finished the 2.8km course in 16:48.3 to put him in 121st place. He made a few route choice errors, but with nothing too costly. He ran past #10 and thinks he lost about 40 sec. His route is drawn on this map:
Alex finished in 17:14.7 to put him in 130th place. He is happy with most of the route choices. He rushed #15 and lost about 30 sec. The Swede who finished 2nd came cruising past at #7, so he lost a minute over the first 7 and then about 3 minutes in the last 9 controls. His route is drawn here:
The splits are on winsplits and there are some photos here
Here we are warming up before race:
The opening ceremony was held at Liseberg, a famous amusement park. JWOC teams were allowed free access to all the rollercoasters and rides. We made good use of that. Here is a view from the observation deck. You can see the wooden rollercoaster.
