d'ora in poi il TRAIL-O avrà due specialità
Pre-O e Temp-O
l'introduzione del termine Pre-O è forse una vittoria scandinava in Commissione IOF? 🙂
speriamo che vinca anche lo stile scandinavo di tracciatura rispetto a quello british…
ecco le principali modifiche (riguardanti il Temp-O):
Each Federation may enter up to … four competitors for the TempO competition
In the TempO competition only the 36 best placed competitors from the qualification
may participate in the final; if there is just one qualification heat they will be the top
36, if there are two qualification heats the top 18 from each heat qualify for the final
The starting order of the TempO final shall be the reverse of the placings in the
qualification race heats; the best competitors shall start last. Ties shall be decided by
drawing lots. E.g. if two competitors tie for 6th place in heat 1, a coin shall be tossed
to determine who has placing 6 and who has placing 7 in heat 1 for the purposes of
this rule. Competitors with the same placing in the different parallel heats shall start
in the sequence of the number of their heat, ie. 1, 2, 3…; the winner of the highest
numbered heat therefore starts last.
In TempO the shape and size of the maps shall be either circular or square. A circular
map shall have a diameter between 5 cm and 12 cm and a square map shall have
sides between 5 cm and 12 cm. Each map shall be centred on the control circle. All
maps at all stations must have the same form and size. The map shall be fixed on stiff
material which is larger than the map.
A TempO qualification course shall consist of at least 4 control stations and 20 timed
controls. A TempO final course shall consist of at least 5 control stations and 25
timed controls. There should be at least three timed controls at each control station.
A separate, specially prepared map is used for each timed control and the competitor
is given the complete ordered set of maps for the control station as a stack with a
cover sheet on top.
17.6 At each timed control station in a PreO competition, the maximum total time is 60
seconds multiplied by the number of timed controls. The total time and the individual
answers for each timed control are recorded.
17. 7 At each station in a TempO competition, the maximum total time is 30 seconds
multiplied by the number of timed controls
In a TempO competition, competitors are ranked according to their total corrected
time, which is the sum of the times taken at each control station plus 30 seconds
penalty for each wrong answer.
