Route to Christmas: Day 14 2008

Todays leg in ‘Route to Christmas 2008′ is leg 18 in Men Elite from the 6. Nationaler Baselbieter OL @ 2008-09-14 (OLV Baselland). A really long leg in alpine terrain – towards the end of the course. Thank you to Stefan Lombriser (running himself) and Marcel Schiess for this tip.

The leg is as usually first provided without routes – you may take a look at it and think about how you would attack this leg (if the image is too small, you may click on it to get it larger):

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!
