2016 10 05 Enjoy the record of live TV.  This time comments in Lithuanian as this was broadcasted on Lithuanian TV3.lt

2016 10 01 

Dear athletes,

You are probably aware that we saw an unusualy high number of mispunches (77 athletes in total) at the LONG-distance yesterday.

Please know that we analysed every single case very exactly. In general, we saw THREE different cases:

1) Not activated SIACs – 4 cases. Please remember that you MUST follow the procedure CLEAR -> CHECK (SIAC ON) before EVERY race. We do admit that the CLEAR and CHECK stations were not ideally placed in the mass-start arena.

2) Technical issues – 20 cases. We could identify a small batch of SIACs that showed signs of failure during the race. “Interestingly”, this failure affected only a small number of classes. We are very sad to have to announce that we have voided the following categories:
W60
W70
M70

PLEASE NOTE: We have decided to replace these 20, and 24 further SIACS from the same batch (which actually did work at the LONG, but we want to eliminate all chances of another failure), for todays race. The list of affected runners can be found on a separate page. You will receive the replacement SIAC AT THE START, so please proceed to the start with a few minutes spare to allow for us to exchange your SIAC.

3) “Real” mispunches – 53 cases. Yes, please do understand that a large number of runners did – according to our analysis – have “normal mispunches” – i.e. single missing control, single wrong control (other control punched), course-loop skipped or reversed. Also, we know that there were some cases of abondoning race due to bicycle defect. We will publish the result of our analysis separately.

CONCLUSION: We fully accept if you wish to discuss our analysis. Each mispunch analysis is waiting at the event office for discussion.

Again, we are very sorry about the technical issues, but please understand that NOT EVERY MISPUNCH was our fault.

Thank you, and have a great race today!

Last weekend one of the biggest orienteering competitions in Lithuania were held in Siauliai. Lithuania's professional trek and road cyclist Tomas Vaitkus had a debut in MTBO during the sprint in "TAKAS 2017". Even though he has a wide range of achievements in his career, such as Giro d'Italia stage winner, it was not an easy challenge to orienteer in sprint distance which went through the narrow Siauliu center streets. Tomas Vaitkus during his career has even started in Tour de France which this year will be starting this Saturday, but in this case, after the sprint distance he felt like a "Butterfly in cabbages", he said.
