Todays leg in ‘Route to Christmas 2008′ is leg 10 in HE from the Swiss Champs Sprint distance 2008 @ 2008-09-06. Again – not all the best have drawn their routes – but still an interesting leg. There is especially one route which is difficult to spot…
Then you can take a look at how the runners who have drawn their route choice solved this leg:
Note! Daniel Hubmann ran the same route as Mathys/Ebetner – and run the fastest split of the day. According to Hubmann’s analysis, all three routes were about equal to this control if you ran well, but I still think that Rüedlinger’s (and others who run this way) did well by seeing this alternative… Maybe the course setter should have placed the 9th control a bit higher to make the alternatives a bit more unequal…?

About Route to Christmas
The ‘Route to Christmas’ series at World of O was very popular last year – and I’ve therefore decided to continue the series this Christmas as well. Based on tips from YOU, we’ll see if Route to Christmas comes all the way to Christmas Eve, or if we stop earlier. If you have got any good legs in RouteGadget from 2008 competitions, please email me the link at Jan@Kocbach.net, and I’ll include it in Route to Christmas if it looks good.
There will be no analysis about the best routechoice for each leg in this years Route to Christmas – you can provide that yourself in the comments. Not all legs are taken for the interesting routechoice alternatives – some are also taken because the map is interesting – or because it is not straightforward to see what to do on a certain leg. Any comments are welcome – especially if you ran the event chosen for todays leg!
