The adventure continues. Are you prepared for Stage 2?
Today, SMHI says that there will be cloudy weather and between 15 to 20 degrees, nice running weather for everyone to continue fighting in.
O-Ringen continues at Arena Grosvad, terrain area Grosvad for the Ol and Loreberg for MTBO, located in Finspång municipality.
Today, the start is located west from the arena on roads and paths for all classes. Show respect for the residents in the area and use existing toilets located at three places. Liquid is also available in three places. Out on the maps, all classes pass one or more places with fluid.
The area for the stage has nice forest with both fir, pine and almost no clearings. The terrain varies where the shorter courses advance in a area with lots of path and the long courses reach a detailed, difficult-to-orientated area. The hills is moderate, but there are some steeper slopes. Most courses will contain long routes with interesting road selection options. The longer courses pass through paved roads, so be careful about the passages.
As after yesterday's completed competition, it can be nice to have a bath. Medley's water park is located in the arena. Otherwise, as usual, there are our nice home-built showers on the arena.
To keep track of everything important listen to Radio O-Ringen, FM 104.0 MHz here in Finspång. The broadcasts start at 6:30 am every morning during the week and go on until 9 pm.
