Nothing decided yet in the MTBO World Cup 2015

Posted on | August 16, 2015 | Category: News

On Tuesday August 18th the World Mountainbike Orienteering Championships (WMTBOC) kick off in Liberec, Czech Republic. Individual medals in MTBO’s main event will be handed out in Middle Distance, Sprint and Long Distance competitions and the championships end on Saturday August 22nd with the relay competitions.

The World MTBO Championships also constitute the final round of the MTBO World Cup 2015. And there are some exciting battles to be fought over who will be the final World Cup winners. The scores of 5 of the 8 World Cup rounds held this year count to the final total score, so with 3 competitions remaining there are still lots of opportunities for some significant changes in the results list.

The men’s World Cup is especially exciting as the 3 top competitors are within 20 points of each other, Anton Foliforov (RUS), Jussi Laurila (FIN) and Baptiste Fuchs (FRA). Emily Benham (GBR) holds a commanding lead at the moment in the women’s World Cup results, having scored full points for wins in 3 of the 5 first races.

In the Nation’s Relay World Cup only 1 point separates the Czech Republic and France so this will certainly not be decided until Saturday’s relay competition. Link to the Relay World Cup standings.

The championships in Liberec also include the Junior World MTBO Championships, and over 275 athletes will be in action during the week to come. The championships can be followed via the IOF LiveCenter and the organisers’ homepage. The sprint competition on Wednesday August 19th is scheduled to be broadcast on Czech television  and via the IOF LiveCenter.
