Jukola+Venla: Maps and full GPS tracking


There are many highlights in the GPS tracking from the very technical Jukola and Venla relays. See how Anders Nordberg decided 10Mila for Halden SK on the long, dark and rainy 3rd leg – giving his team mates a lead of more than 5 minutes.

Decisive moments – Jukola relay

The following are some of the most decisive moments in the Jukola relay (see GPS Tracking of some of them in the video below):

  • 1st leg, 7th 6th control. Kristiansand (Jostein Andersen) has no punch on the control, and gets disqualified. Halden SK (Kiril Nikolov) and Kalevan Rasti (Jan Prochazka) loose between 3 and 4 minutes, but this is not important for the overall results in the end. (GPS Tracking Jukola, 1st leg)
  • 2nd leg. Kalevan Rasti (Tommi Tölkkö) looses nearly 7 minutes to Halden (Erik Axelsson) and several of the other top teams – down to 28th place for Kalevan Rasti. (GPS Tracking Jukola, 2nd leg)
  • 3rd leg. Halden (Anders Nordberg) gets a 5 minute lead after a very good race at the long and dark 3rd leg. Note however that Kalevan Rasti (Hannu Airila) has a time which is only one second slower than Halden on this leg – getting Kalevan Rasti up to 3rd place. Thus there were two kings of the night at this years Jukola relay, although Nordberg’s solo in the lead is more impressive. (GPS Tracking Jukola, 3rd leg)
  • 4th leg. Halden (Mattias Karlsson) continues to run very well with few mistakes, while Kalevan Rasti (Simo Martomaa) looses another 6 minutes. Second now is IFK Lidingö SOK 8:41 down. (GPS Tracking Jukola, 4th leg)
  • 5th leg. Halden (Mats Haldin) does a good race, keeping Kalevan Rasti (Philippe Adamski) at a distance and increasing the lead to the other teams. Haldens lead is more than 11 minutes after the 5th leg, and the relay is decided. (GPS Tracking Jukola, 5th leg)
  • 6th leg. Halden (Emil Wingstedt) does another good leg, not giving Kalevan Rasti (Fabian Hertner) any chance to get closer – Halden is actually increasing the lead further (GPS Tracking Jukola, 6th leg).
  • 7th leg. Kalevan Rasti (Thierry Gueorgiou) runs a great race, decreasing the lead of Halden (Olav Lundanes) minute by minute, finally stopping at just above 7 minutes for a very secure 2nd spot. (GPS Tracking Jukola, 7th leg)

  1. Is 3DRerun available for downloading? Looks like a great way to analyze races!

  2. @Adrian: It is in closed beta (and it is a web-based tool). I’ll send you password to try out the beta.

  3. Once again great coverage. Makes it so easy to follow the race after missing it!! Really Appreciate it.

  4. You can still watch 1,5 h long summary from Jukola TV next 30 days in YLE arenan. http://areena.yle.fi/video/1080248

  5. A full Midsummer nights dream (7 1/4 h) of Jukola relay in finnish at http://areena.yle.fi/video/1088458

  6. I see that you have the map from GPSseuranta in the header (if I am right). Can somebody tell me how I can get the image file of the map from GPSseuranta and download it to my computer? Some of my maps are to big for my scanner, so it would be great to have an image file of the map ;)
