HeadCam synced with GPS data for WOC Middle Qual

middleheadcam
A new HeadCam video from the WOC terrain – this time the complete Middle Qual course for the women. Again you can experience what the World Champs competitors experienced in the tricky French terrains – HeadCam video is synchronized with GPS position- the synchronization is done in 3DRerun with the HeadCam/GPS synchronization feature.

You can click anywhere on the map with the left mouse button while holding down the ctrl-key, and let the video jump to that position

HeadCam runner for both videos is Matthieu Puech. For the WOC Middle distance qualification Mr. HeadCam run through the women’s qualification heat A with a time just around the winning time of Minna Kauppi. In the video you also see Eric Perrin (course setter of the long distance final and qualification) who started at the same time and run one of the other qual heats. Note that there were unfortunately no controls in the forest – and there are some small inaccuracies for the GPS in some places. Still you should understand a lot about how it is in the forest. As you can see, there is a lot of running and paths were all you have to do is to keep the speed high – and then you have to get your speed down in the forest were the runnability is variable – in some areas even very bad.

Technical information
