Ken Peeters wins 3rd stage at the Flanders 3-days

The last stage of the Flanders 3-days took place on a new map in Lommel (Heeserbergen). There are rumours that this map will be used for the Belgian middle champs in 2012, so today was a perfect test for the competitors.

Todays race was announced as a middle distance race, but it was more like an extended middle (8.42km for H21E). Joost Talloen, who won the previous stages, ran again a good race and was faster than his opponents for the general ranking. Only Ken Peeters was able to beat him. Yesterday the trol star came home from Finland (results Finland) and today he already won the H21E race in 44'44. Joost Talloen became 2nd, Jeremy Genar 3rd and Alexander Lubina (GER) 4th.

In class D21E Monika Depta won all stages. Kim Geypen traditionally finished in 2nd position (2min behind) and Lenka Vorackova 3rd (4min behind).



In general Talloen was the clear winner ahead of Desmond Franssen. Alexander Lubina still succeeded in beating his temporary teammate Karl Tiselieus for the 3rd position. In womens class nothing had changed. Monika Depta won ahead of Kim geypen and Lenka Vorackova.

Since the Flanders 3-days are over, it's time to look forward to the Belgian champs. In 2 weeks the Belgian relay champs will take place at Schrikkelberg and in 4 weeks it's time for the long champs at Gruitroderbos.

    Belgium, the only orienteering country where you can prepare for championships running on the competition map 1 year before...

    @Desmond: do you know why the map can not be published?

    for the moment, link to the map is still there at Desmond's and Ken's-trainings-log (AP), and probably some more (foreign) runners will publish it..., so it is still published...
    Don't know the reason; Hope it has nothing to do with an embargo: if we were allowed to orienteer on it, the least they could do for all the others:
    - who took not the opportunity to run there
    - were not able to come to the event
    - ...
    is to publish the map, so they could at leastsee it....

    BTW, I liked both the map and the course ;-)
    Maybe I should take a headcam next time ;-)

    Same as Jan... if the reason is the embargo, then it's the worst decision they could take!

    Ardoc, the only orienteering clubwhere you can prepare for Belgium championships interclub running on the competition map 1 year before...

    If you give interclub champs and Belgium middle champs the same value, you're right "Anoniem".

    Would be interesting to ask orienteerers whether they prefer winning interclubs or belgian champs...
