Given that 5 of the top 10 overall were in the A final long distance at WMOC and the winner is a 5 day time cross country ski world champion, add in the top Austrians who were not at WMOC, I was happy to complete the competition in 23rd place. The biggest challenge was the variety of scales used. Day 1 started with a 1:7,500 and then switched to a 1; 4,000 half way through...confusing one to begin the competition with! They seemed to be big into 1;7,500 on massive A3 sheets which can be confusing due to the number of times you have to refold the map.
