Oittans-Solvalla-Oittans

Might be some of the last weekends this season for biking in decent weather... Mostly easy but hilly gravel paths from Oittaa heading north to Solvalla, then back south along the main road.

Iltarastit Solvalla

As daylight disappears Iltarastit moves to Sundays. +11 C or so. Too nervous right after stepping off the path towards #1. Then quite tentative towards #21. The long compass-legs 5-4 and 8-16 look surprisingly good.

Iltarastit Solvalla

A loop around #1, then OK until #3, but followed someone else towards #4 and lost the plot. Tired legs for the rest of the course.

Firmaliiga Solvalla

Decent run for a change, 11th out of 60 runners on the E-track. Just past the wrong stone on #1 and a ~2 min loop back. Drifted into the blue swamp a bit on #6->#7 but nothing too bad. Maybe too safe along the path to #9. After climbing the hill I searched right for #12 when it was just to the left.

Light rain and maybe +17C.

Kiintorastit Solvalla

Cloudy and a bit windy but fairly warm (this being November already..)
Fairly relaxed pace with no major mistakes.

Iltarastit Solvalla

Only bigger mistake towards the end on #20 crossing the swamp and then correcting right - maybe +1min.
Otherwise quite ok in about +12C and sunshine.

Kiintorastit Solvalla

Another run on the Solvalla map with fixed controls. Last one was in April.

Problems on the second control (#50) where at first I didn't know exactly where on the dashed path I had come down from the hill, and then inside the control circle I looked for stones north up the hill when the control-stone was lower down in the forest.

Solvalla kiintorastit, 5km

Still snow on the ground for maybe 30% of the route. Quite wet and soft.

Mostly ok but just inside the #32 control circle we somehow lost faith and did a loop in the wrong direction.

Iltarastit, Solvalla

2014-09-28_IR_solvalla_qr_splits

Nice going on four out of eight legs of the course.

Out of #1 I have the wrong direction and loose 2-3minutes probably.

#5 (3 on the map) is a horrible mess where I drift down the correct hill not really knowing where I am - worst split by far 🙁

Firmaliiga 5/2014, Solvalla

2014-08-19_FL_solvalla_qr_splits

The second firmaliiga event this fall, at Solvalla quite close to the first one.

Close to #1 I should have had a better plan - I've just graced the control-circle and then looked in the wrong direction for some random big stone. Around 90 s lost.

#2-#3 quite OK. To #4 my route is probably too zigzaggy - less turns and leaving all the green areas to the left(north) is probably better.  To #5 the paths on the left were apparently a bit clearer and faster? To #6 I was too high up the hill and didn't find the path.

#7-F is quite OK again.
