See also this video which gives an impression of the terrain:

Long distance

The terrain is described as having hilly topography with moderate to steeper slopes. Both the runnability and visibility is good to very good. Very few roads and paths in the area. Challenging mountain terrain, altitude 630 – 880 m a s l. The competition area is one big slope with generally good to very good visibility. Hilly and physically demanding forest with mainly pine trees but some areas with spruce tree which reduces the visibility. The ground is broken from time to time which reduces the runnability but overall it is good to very good. The competition area is inside a nature reserve which means no clear-cut areas and hardly no green areas at all. Some areas are very detailed with a lot of features.

World Cup 2021

The 2021 World Cup consists of three rounds; Neuchatel (Switzerland), Idre Fjäll (Sweden) and Cansiglio (Italy), see below. The World Orienteering Championships, organized in Czech Republic, is not part of the World Cup.

World Cup standings

With two sprint races done in the World Cup and four forest races to come (two in Idre Fjäll now in August and two in Cansiglio, Italy in September/October), a lot can change in the overall World Cup. However, several of the top placed athletes are typical all-rounders; Matthias Kyburz leading the men’s World Cup won the WOC Middle distance and third placed Kasper Fosser won the WOC Long distance. In the women’s class multi-talent Tove Alexandersson leads the World Cup – and is on track for yet another overall World Cup victory.

World Cup Final Middle 2021: Maps and Results

Tove Alexandersson (Sweden) and Kasper Fosser (Norway) were yet again on top of the results ...

12 comments

  1. TracTrac does not work at all – as always. Unbelievable!!

  2. Why are organizers using TracTrac in orientering when it sucks every single time? It can’t be cheaper than gpsseuranta??

    • Tractrac has signed a partnership with the IOF for live GPS.
      I hope that it will soon end, it is often not working, and even when working the software is definitly not as good as gpseuranta…

  3. Anyone having any luck with TracTrac? Worked for a while, but now down? It’s quite awesome to follow long distance with gpsseuranta, not so much with TracTrac…

  4. They had server capacity problems and they took off public tracking to be able to show it on TV

  5. The live results seems to be totally screwed today …

  6. … and TracTrac seems to be “dead” today as well …

  7. Thanks Jan,

    IOF has still not enabled the links, though …

    Oh, nowadays one searches for sponsored banners rather than control points. Why didn’t they place a car in the middle of the forest – it’s an SUV.

    IMO, a great long distance course, but I am not sure about the mediocre distance.
    Is the element of luck too dominant, especially at control points 15M and 16M?
    Is there a need to make the middle course physically as demanding as it was in Switzerland?

    Anyway, the terrain looks fantastic.

    • The sponsored banners at an easy leg on the top of the treeless mountain on the middle distance might not be that big a deal to me, but part from that they are really ugly and affecting the competition in a negative way in other places.

  9. It´s very annoying that the relay starts at 12:35 and the Web TV at 13:00pm….
