WOC Report #6 – a tough sprint relay, a brutal long to come
By Malcolm Ingham - Tue 04 Jul 2017

The NZL team of Imogene, Tim, Ross and Laura have finished 21st in a really tough sprint relay held largely around the ruins of the tuetonic knoghts hill fort in Viljandi. A magnificant setting for the arena in an amphiphetre gave no hint of the steep hills, valleys and depressions just outside which featured prominently […]

WOC Report #5 – Sprint reflections
By Malcolm Ingham - Sun 02 Jul 2017

Having at last had the chance to walk around the sprint terrain in Tartu I completely agree with Tim’s comments that he posted on his blog regarding the courses from yesterday. To qualify – what a magnificant sprint area it was up on the hill: grassy slopes with a network of paths between statues, bridges, […]

WOC Report #4: Disappointment in Tartu

Both Tim and Laura dropped time early on and Lizzie suffered a recurrence of the breathing problems have hindered her sprint performances in the past few years. The courses themselves were very atypical of what Kiwis probably expect of […]

The truth of rumours floating around […]

WOC Report #2 – and they’re off (nearly)
By Malcolm Ingham - Fri 30 Jun 2017

Two more days of light training and sampling of Estonian terrain of various types, and here we are on the eve of Sprint Qualification. Today’s model event (the model for all the sprints) suggested a terrain with as much grass as tarmac, not too many buildings, some steep slopes, and the cobbles of the old town […]

WOC Report #1: Marshes, mosquitoes and meanderings in Estonia
By Malcolm Ingham - Tue 27 Jun 2017

Tuesday morning in Tartu, Estonia and finally, with the 9.55pm flight from Helsinki and the 11.30pm bus from Tallinn delivering Ross and Nick, respectively, to the bosom of the team, all NZL team members have arrived for WOC2017.
