The orienteering will not be so difficult during the fifth stage of this years O-Ringen. ”It is rather road choice and physics that determine who will win, says Anders Besterman, one of todays course setters.
Anders has set the courses together with Tobias Thorsson and the responsible Magnus Eliasson. The course are in the same area as the fourth stage, but in a different part of the area.
”The terrain is similar, but most courses will pass an area with quarries”, says Tobias Thorsson.
Most classes have their start on top of the hill as during Thursday. Depending on the lenght of the courses, the orienteers have to run down and up the hill one or several times. For the oldest, it is mostly downhill.
”The slopes are very nice with almost no undergrowth at all”, says Anders Besterman.
For the youngsters, M and O classes, the start is in a different direction. Their courses is mostly flat and in the beginning they pass an area with older quarries.
