Remo Madella is in good shape after the competitions in Portugal! Today, near Sezana (Slovenia), the best italian trailorienteer had won the tempO format organized by OK Trzin. There were 8 stations with 4 tasks: very interesting terrain and various type of questions; I think the best competitors have found their right position in the final results. Wainting for the ufficial results I can say you the best 10:

In a sunny day, near Padova, more than 30 people have competed to win the first round of Italy cup; all the controls were inside the Golf Club area (Galzignano terme). The terrain, open areas and a lot of green dots, didn't permit various controls but using alignments and good precision to choose the right green areas. The competition seems easy but at the end only two people had the full score: Michele Cera and Elvio Cereser. One mistake for Emil Kacin and Ivo Tisljar and three for Lenarduzzi. The planner has unexplainably made six time controls! Remember: this year, time controls aren't counted for the final score. Time controls were very clear but very deceptive.... Next step in Cro-Ita-Slo cup is Lipica cup on 8th and 9th March but in Italy cup it's on 15th and 16th March in Milan.

On Sunday, near Padova, Italy cup 2014 starts... The formula is Pre-O and the planner is Danieli Daniele, the italian champion in 2013. More than 20 people are at the start: from Italy there are Michele Cera, Renato Bettin, Susy De Pieri but not Remo Madella on holiday in Portugal... from Croatia will arrive Ivo Tisljar, Jasminka and Dalibor Perovic. The map and the terrain are inside the Golf Club Galzignano and the ability of planner will be very important to decide the difficult of the controls. After some years, finally, the time controls aren't important for the score but only for the position, in case of equal number of right controls.

Dear ITTG competitors, our virtual meeting is over and I have sent you the final results. Other people can see the final standing in the "winner" page. Despite some controls were evalueted difficult or tricky the best competitors have taken the best positions. We had few suprises and many confirmations: Marit and NMF26 are the WTOC 2013 silver medals, Antti and Pinja don't need their presentation, Christian has won last edition. The surprise is LATEM but his name could become famous in the next future; the surprises come from Hong Kong and USA and this is a good news for our discipline. And Raus? after a complain the jury has analyzed his score and it has decided to disqualify him because his score was unreal if he played without cheating; I don't know if he has played correctly but if he was able to beat so clearly the best trailorienteers of the world he must prove it in a real competition: for now we cann't trust in him. I hope to organize next edition soon and that one could be "made in Finland".

Here the game
Here the results
This game was the most difficult; you had to keep on your self control. The first and last task were the same flag with two different descriptions (you had to think about which tree and the right side were good). The second and third controls were Z ansers because both were in different places: B flag was near the corner of the house (and not in middle part of the side) while D flag was three meters far from the corner of building. I think you had to use the lens to be sure of your answer. Infact, the best competitors needed about 40"/50" to answer well. In this game Antti lost 90" penality and now, his place on the podium is very difficult; viceversa, Pinja recovered very well and now she is not far from the podium.

Here is the game
Here are the results.
This control was a mix of real control and artificial flags. I chose this picture because there were some different features to use the tasks; only the last task has created some prolems. The mapped feature isn't visible in the picture but if you checked well where were X and O symbols you could understand that A flag couldn't be in the right place and the utility pole wasn't mapped. There are only two more games to the end of the competition and the standing is becoming more and more conclusive.

Here the game
Here the results.
This game was an experiment: to take a photo and put the flags artificially. I think the result is good because the mistakes in this game were about one control and not due to the bad drawing. I chose this picture of a construction site because a lot of features were not mapped because not fixed; the most of you had a good results here. The problems were about the fourth control: if you watch E and F flags are at the same level in two different part of the hill. I used E flag (hill N-E) precisely but I didn't use the hill for the fourth task (spur). I planned this control to understand if you read the control description. F flag had to be fixed some meters lower than that one.

Here the game.
Here the results.
I have to admit this picture was difficult because the distance of the flags was high. The first control was an easy "between" because you couldn't see the aligment; I used this description to permit the good vision of the flag; it's very stupid to put a Zero control so far. The second control was terrible for you: C flag was at the corner of the fence. If you understood this one you hadn't problems otherwise the mistake was sure! third and fifth controls were regular while the fourth was difficult if you hadn't understood the second one. The center of circle was quite far from C flag (corner of fence) and from the corner of yellow/white dots area. Now, we are in the middle of the competition and the standing is becoming clear....

Here is the game.
Here are the results.
This station have two difficult tasks: the first, where the true tree wasn't visibile because was behind the orange stripes; you could understand it because the distance, in the map, was long much more than on the picture. F flag was near a tree but it was not mapped because too much small. The third tasks was difficult because D flag was at the top of the wrong staircase. The circle was at same distance of two trees (green circles) while D flag was near two pillars (on the path). Other tasks were regular and the most part of competitors have answered well.

Here you can find the results.
In my opinion, this control was not too much difficult; first, second and fourth tasks were regular (you had to trust in me for "pit task"). The problems were at third and fifth controls: they were in the right direction but they are in wrong place: third was near the corner of the stream (about 3 meters far from the end of the green area), while D flag was picked on the knoll and E flag was near the corner of the stream. It can be the depht of image was not right for your choice.

Here you can see this station. I have to say you have found this control very difficult. In my opinion, the important strategy was to understand where was the house: it was T on map. After that decision, you could understand the first and second controls (wrong fence and right tree near the house) while third and fourth were regular controls (you had to understand the right features); some question will be about fifth control: I put the same flag of second control. That house leans on the branch of the tree so I have used control description to tell you my plan. Zero answer wasn't possible because eventualy right flag would have been too much close it. Here you can find the results after the first station.

In few hours 3° ITTG will end; my target of 100 competitors is over and I'm very because I saw Countries and players who never were here. Not news about Ukraine and Russian; it's possible they don't know about this edition but I wait for today. Finally, Finland has decided to play some cards and the match for the podium is very interesting. New visit from Spain and Danmark: I'm thinking about a National team standing using the score of the best three competitors of each Nation.

The number of the competitors is growing and slowly we get close number 100. The competition is becoming very interesting because a lot of competitors are in few seconds; for this reason, I have decided to publish the results day by day. It means every day I will give you the result of one station and only after 7 days you will know the winner. Yesterday, I saw some flags from France (it's a news for ITTG) and GB; perhaps, Pinja (world champion) couldn't play ITTG due to birth of second child: good wishes to her.

The trophy is continuing and some champions have played their cards. Marit Wiksell and Lauri Kontkanen have chosen the second day to put thier names in the standing.

Good start for ITTGame: 25 competitors are classified in 24 hours! But, Scandinavian Countries are waiting for last days.... Is it strategy or they don't like TempO Game? While I waiting for them, I can say this edition seemed easier than the second ITTG; after one day, I have understood the players had some difficult to understand the pictures and the maps. Somebody is searching to use his knowledge in computer language to take advantage; I repeat: this is only a game and not the WTOC's selection!
I noticed two strategies: the young competitors prefer answer fast but with many mistakes, the seasoned competitors use more time to answer good, the champions answer fast and good. But, where are the champions? Yesterday, we had the winner of second ITTG (Christian), the fourth placed in the second ITTG (Raus): I don't analyze their results because I don't want to influence other competitors.
Remember: the time score is the sum of the time elapsed and not the final score.

After the holidays we are ready to play the new edition of ITTG; next Thursday is the date. From 09th to 15th January, you can play the 8 stations of this edition; it's not necessary to play all the stations together but you can play one station for each day. During this edition you can see the "time standing": it's the classification of the best time scores and it doesn't count the penalties. During these days I'm watching some people are playing the old games to train for next edition. Good luck and enjoy yourself!

Next weekend, in Plitvice (Croatia), there will be the last two rounds of ECTO; they are counted for Cro - Ita - Slo Cup too. Both competitions are PreO style. For the first time, the course setter Ivo Tisljar has informed the competitors about "Zero tollerance"; this matter is dibatted among the competitors to avoid mistakes about Zero controls. Good is the number of competitors: about 70 people splitted in three class. All the best competitors from Italy are there (except Guido Michelotti) and there are the current leader of ECTO, Lars Jakob Waaler, the gold medal of WTOC 2013, Jari Turto.

Today, at Piani di Praglia, there was the first Italian championship of tempO; the winner was Michele Cera (he won the title in PreO - 2012 too) ahead of Enrico Gottardo (newcomer in trailO but "old fox" in foot-O) and the favorite Susy De Pieri. I can say the competition didn't keep up with a championship of TempO: 7 were the stations (4 taskes) but only 1 or 2 were tempO stations! the others were PreO stations.... too much controls were on hidden features or in incomprehensible zone of the map. If you spent a lot of time to understand the terrain, you weren't sure to answer well! so, many competitors decided to answer fast and to hope in lucky. The winner had almost 10 mistakes in 28 controls but the most of competitors had a percentage about 50% of right answers! If I used my "Zero strategy" (all Zero answers in 3 seconds) my score was in the podium! I hope the planner won't use the same method of planning in the next WTOC... You can find some photos on FB

Now, his score is 60 points, in four rounds, and he can play for the final podium; a good confirm is the Pfister's result after Prà Catinat: he took the second place ahead of Gazzetto and Grilli, everybody with 18 points. There weren't Remo Madella, Elvio Cereser, Danieli Daniele and Guido Michelotti (course setter); Michele Cera is continuing his bad period: only 10th place! The competition was not too difficult but some controls have decided the final standing: in particular, time controls were very misleading and the nobody was able to avoid the mistakes.

Perhaps, only in Sweden or in Finland this is possible... Now, we wait for new great competitors from HK in next WTOC because among these competitors must be there any trailo's talent.

New round of Italy cup in Fenestrelle (Turin); August isn't the best month, in Italy, to organize trailo competition because the most of trailorienteers are on holiday around the world. But, this occasion was very special because very close at meeting point it's occuring the WMOC and a lot of foreign competitors were in competition ; so, more than 40 people were in Pra Catinat to play trailO.
Antonio Lo Grasso and Marina Beltramo have planned an interesting competition, not too difficult controls because the map was an orienteering map enlarged at 5000 scale and some details and features weren't mapped well. The terrain was a steep slop forest, in the first part, and a large open area in the last part. The controls were 23 + 4 TC; the most part of them were quite easy and only 4-5 controls were decisive.
At the finish only 4 people had the clear score: Nick Barrable, Remo Madella, Mark Heikoop and Renato Bettin. The difference among them was about the time controls: Nick and Remo were perfect (but Nick was faster than Remo) while Mark and Renato made a mistake (Mark faster than Renato); they have taken the first four place of standing.
At fifth place Guntar Mankus led a group of competitors with two mistakes: SJ Gaffney, Pfister, Cereser, Forstova.
Despite some rumors about a bad control nobody has presented any complain and the standing was confirmed.
The winner In A class was Antunin Forst and in paralimpyc class was Francesco Valentini.
Next italian meeting will be at the end of August in Liguria where the Michelotti's family will organize two competitions among which the first italian tempO championship....

Renato Bettin has won the overall standing of OOCup trailO; after three days of competitions he scored 52 points ahead of Christian Gieseler and Zoltan Mihaczi both one point less than him. The leader, after two rounds, Tomislav Varnica and other competitors didn't compete because Monday is a working day and they weren't on holiday. The winner of the last stage was Mark Heikoop, the last one who had one mistake; the competition was very different to the first and second stages; open areas and steep slope instead of forest and detailed terrain. The last competitors have given up to time controls due a sudden storm has gotten wet everybody.

On the first day the winner was Marco Giovannini ahead of Tomislav Varnica and Damir Gobec; on the second day the winner was Renato Bettin ahead of Zdenko Horjan and Christian Gieseler. A lot of complains about the controls but only three answers weren't good; the maps are foot-orienteering type and only few days ago they were available to the setters.
Today the last competition will be in open area and not in the forest like the first and second stage.

Very difficult is to bet about the winner: from Italy there are Renato Bettin, Elvio Cereser, Susy De Pieri and Stefano Galletti, from Croatia Zdenko Horjan, Damir Gobec, T. Varnica and Jasminka Perkovic, from Netherlands Mark Heikoop, from Germany Christian Gieseler, from Hungary a good group of trailorienteers; other Contries are present: Czech R., Spain, and of course Slovenia.

Everybody know the final standings of WTOC 2013: Jary Turto, Jana Kostova and Pinja Makinen are the gold medal in Preo Open, Paralimpyc, TempO classes. So, what can I add to this news?
I think it was a good WTOC: not surprises in the standing, a good terrain, good organisation. Some words about the courses setting: the most part of the controls were in forest where the countour
lines were gradual and the experience of Scandinavian competitors was very important. The most part of the clusters were set there and the competition of Preo was a little bit boring. The second part
of day 2 was a little diffent and its controls seemed very similar to south Europe setting style. There were some controls where Z tollerance was very important: I'm thinking about control n.1 in both
days! In the first competition, everybody have understood that A flag was in the right reentrance but somebody have aswered Z because the flag was picked very close at the end of the reentrance
(50 cm. far of the right place); the same example about n.1 of second day: the correct flag (B) was 1,5 m. higher than right contour and 2 m. far of the center of the circle. In both cases it could be
very simple to pick the flags in the right place to avoid the protest. I found very incredible the motivations about the reject of the protests: lineguides are only suggestions and every control have to
be guess using past competitions... in Italy, we ask this type of answer "Ponzio Pilato" related to the Roman emperor. Some paralimpyc competitors have protested about n.7 (day 2) because they couldn't
see the flags out of point of view: Jari is 2 m. tall and he's jumping during the n.7 resolution... this type of control isn't fair because the tall can't be a skill of trailO.
However, it's clear we have three groups of competitors: the top competitors, I'm thinking about the Scandinavian Countries and some competitors of Europe which have great talent (Lestinsky, Michelotti, Kyrichenko,
A.Straube,); the second group of the competitors: they are very good competitors but they need another one steep to reach the top. Here I'm thinking about the best competiors of Croatia, Slovenia, Italy,
Czech R. and other Countries. The last group is two steeps behind the top and I'm thinking about good competitors who need more experience to avoid stupid mistakes or they have to train more to solve very
tricky controls (I am an example of this group).
Some words about Pinja: I think she's the future type of competitors; I believe in the next future some elite foot-orienteers will begin to play this discipline.During the ITT game, I saw that some finnish guys, who
never seen in trailO competitions, made a very good score. I know the training of these young orienteers is very hard and they are able to solve very fast the controls.
Next year the WTOC will be in Italy and ETOC in Portugal: we already wait for new medals.

Today first round of WTOC: in Open class the best were Jari Turto (24 + 32") and Martin Fredholm (24 + 82"); in 3rd place was Antii Rusanen the only one with 23 points. There were seven competitors with 22 points and among these there were Guido Michelotti (8° - 85") and Remo Madella (10° - 134"). Very bad the Marco's competition (35° - 16p - 42"); many mistakes and not well performance. In paralimpyc class the podium was for Czech: Jana Kostova 23p ahead Pavel Dudik 21p and MIchael Johansson (21p); Francesco Valentini was 32° with 8 points.

After the weekend of Selkie Remo Madella has become "the man of the moment"; everybody ask who's him and if he could be the next World champ. I know him since 1998 when we were in same club; during the last years he has travelled a lot of km travelling the Europe and to compete in many Countries. His progress in trailO discipline has been ever increasing despite the Italian movement didn't keep the same pace; now, he has found a good feeling with Scandinavian maps and terrains because he has planned the last two years to this WTOC. I don't know if he will be able to take the podium in Vuokatti but he showed that some years to work one's way up now he has reached the best trailOrienteers of the world achieving their respect. Good luck Remo. ...

The past weekend, in Latvia, there were two rounds of ECTO: my reporter from Miķeļtornis has described the terrain very tricky but the maps were not well drawn. The competitions were fun although some controls were not clear. The winners were K-char: Kobzarev Aleksandr (Russia) won first day, Kyrychenko Vitalii (Ukraine) won the second day. Good results, in both days, were for Shmatov (2° and 7°), Jovaisa (3° and 5°), Normund Narvaiss (4° and 9°), Ivans Peteris (3° and 8°), Zita Ruksane (9° and 10°).
The leader of ECTO, Lars Jakob Waaler has to forget this "two days" because his placements (13° and 32°) were so far as his reputation. Good news to Remo Madella (the only one italian trailorienteer competitor): 11th place the first day and 2nd place in the last day.
Next rounds of ECTO will be in October in Croatia but in July there will be the most important event of season: WTOC.

At this moment, I haven't the final results because after the finish (and when I copied the standing) the control n.5 was erased.
But the discussion about this weekend of trailO remain: how is possible that Martin (37th place yesterday) won today and Lars J. (winner yesterday) dropped to 40th place? How is possible Stig Gerdtman (WTOC champ) arrived around 20th place in both competition and Marit (European Champ) took places over the 35th place? Simple: in the fantasy trailorienteering of Roberta Falda everyone can win! remember this news during the next WTOC (2014) in Italy...
I think, to wait for an hour before tempO controls (in the middle of the competition), was an awful idea; wrong descriptions (A class had number 31,32,33, instead A-E letters), full magenta circles not cropped, wrong alignment features, point of views free, all these reasons have created a low profile competitions.
Unfortunately, I can't give you the official result but I can write Martin J was in the first position (21 points) ahead Erik Lundkvist and Jari Turto. The winner of overall standing was Erik ahead Daniele Danieli and Marina Borisenkova.
Italian champion 2013 is Danieli Daniele ahead Renato Bettin and Remo Madella.
When I will have the official results I'll update the ECTO standing. ...

This is only a breaking news because I haven't (not only me) the final standing.
After the finish, in the meeting point, everybody asked: "Who is Gazzetto?" I thought about Gazzerro (President of FISO) but the question was about the current leader! This italian competitor is a good trailorienteer but he never won a competition in Italy; the story of the first day of ITOC (and ECTO) is not a good news for trailO: the project was to have 18 controls (16 +2 T.C.) but one was erased before the start and a second one was cancelled after a double protest about number 5 (erased) and 8. It's clear the best competitors have mistaked about three controls: number 5, 8 and 12. The most problem was to understand the Zero tollerance (as Lauri calls it): in some controls the flags were 2/3 meters far away from the center of circle... The provisional standing was: Lars Jakob Waaler (16 points and 12"), Hannu Niemi (16 and 13" ), Gazzetto (16 and 37"); they are the only three (Gazzetto had 17 points before the protest) who have scored 16 points. With 15 and 14 points there are a lot of people but I can't tell you the right position after the protest. I remember the situation about ITOC: Gazzetto (16), Danieli, Madella, Cereser, (all with 15 points) and other large group (Giovannini, De Pieri, Bettin, Lenarduzzi) with 14 points. The site of manifestation and the news about the competition aren't updated in time and this is not a good news about WTOC 2014....

Do you remember 2^ edition of ITT? Trakoscan's tempO was at the same level of difficult. This competition has sparked a debate around the format of this discipline: option A, easy answers and time of solving about 10-15 seconds and 30" penality; option B, answers maked more complex and 45" penality. It remembers the same debate around sprint CO format some years ago.
At present moment we have some rules but the planners haven't adequate experience to plan the right format. Jasminka has planned some controls very difficult: the problems were to see the right feature in the terrain so, some answers were given hoping to get lucky.
Said this, the standing is very clear: the best trailorienteers are always in the top positions! the winner was Ivo Tisljar (720"), 2nd Kreso Kerestes (732"), 3rd Goran Markovic (746") and 4 th Mihaczi Zoltan (761"); they used different strategies: Ivo, Goran and Zoltan were very fast but had 13-14 mistakes, Kreso and Ivica (5th - 839") were less faster than them but had 9 mistakes.
Italian trailorienteers didn't shine but they has taken the 6th place (Remo 855" - 13 errors) and 7th place (Marco 931" - 11 errors); in the rest of standing we found a lot of young people from Croatia: this is good news for trailO and we hope they were scared by the difficult of TempO....

Sometimes, the planner of TrailO are able to surprise the best trailorienteers; in Rogla, Kreso has planned 21 controls (19+2TC) among the meadows and the forest using alignments, microforms of terrain and colors. Some flags were wery close each others and this type of PreO is very difficult to understand and to explain. So, the podium was quite surprising: first place for Damir Gobec, second place Alewijnse Feike, third place for Susy De Pieri. On Saturday evening, there was the night - O competition: the winner was Jasminka Perkovic ahead Marco Giovannini and Renato Bettin.
The final result of three days competition is: the winner Remo Madella, second place Susy De Pieri, third place Jasminka Perkovic.
Next round of Cro-Ita-Slo is on Sunday 16th in Trakoscan (Croatia)...

Crazy time during the tempO competition: the some minutes before to start the weather decided to give us a little of hail! after this pause the tempO competition was regularly done despite the soft rain has disturbed the competitors. Seven stations with 5 taskes in each of them; Remo Madella won clearly with only a mistake and the score of 220". Behind him, Susy De Piery and Ivo Tisljar but their scores was 100" higher. Good positions for Elvio and Renato in 4th and 6th position; Marco was 11th because his strategy (all answers Z in 1 second) hasn't payed. The terrain was a classic park terrain among the houses and tennis courts of Rogla. In the evening there was the night-o and today the PreO competition....

During the last day a lot of people have played the game; there are over 100 people in the final standing and this is my personal satisfaction.
The cup of ITT game is flying toward Sweden from Finland: Christian has played using the right strategy. The best score in the "right controls" results and the exact speed; second place to Martin (NOR) who has hoped untill last hours to win the title. Third place to Marko (FIN) who was able to answer very well in the first station (the difficultiest); behind them the Italian surprise Raus who has used the strategy of speed: many mistake but only 10/15 second every station. Another Christian in the fifth place: I'm happy because he's the first one who plays from Germany; sisth place to Stoyan (UKR). As you notice there are six different flags and this is the true achievement of this edition.
See you to next edition....

Yesterday, some good guys has tryed to beat the wall of 1000"; the podium is under this line and some results are very close to this limit but not enough. We waited for Antti but his performance wasn't brilliant (1118" and 32 right); better than him was another finnish competitor: Jari needed only 14 seconds over the wall! (1014" and 36). Great competition for Manix: he has taken the fourth place and bring his flag (GB) in top five (1004" and 34). Today is the last one: I hope to reach the same competitor as the first edition; the best have played but tempO isn't a rational game and somebody else could try to break the wall....

The most part of trailorienteers, yesterday, have competed in their Countries; the Norwegian people too but after the TempO'scompetition Martin wasn't happy of his performance. So he decided to play his card in ITT to understand if he could be again a good specialist. His result was incredible: record of right score (46) and final score (801") excellent... other Norwegian guys have tryed ITT: Toraaa (1102" and 29) is in top ten, Mini (1131" and 28) is eleventh. Who will be able to fall Marit and Pinja out of the podium? there are not many people: Antti, Lars Jakob, Saku, some others.......

During this week end, there are some manifestations in Europe so the world of Trailorienteering is not at the PC. In a quiet Saturday, Italy has played its best card: Guido Michelotti! his performance was very very fast but he has made 25 errors! he has decide to use the strategy number 1 (let read the old post) and he has taken the fourth place two second behind Guntars. In the evening, John K. has challenged the English people to beat him and one of them, JJJL has scored 1059" and 37 errors making better than JKGB.
Today, I think will be another quiet day but I hope on Monday and on Tuersday the last finnish pleople will play their cards....

In the first edition, the Coutries more numerous were Finland and Latvia; during this edition I'm seeing many people from Hong Kong but not from Latvia. I have written to Janis and the Latvian competitors are coming to play. One of the best Latvian is Guntars: in the first edition he was 13th... yesterday, he played his chance and the result was good: third place (1029" and 40 right controls)! another specialist, Kreker from Slovenia, has taken the fifth place (1085" and 45) and he has the record of right answers.... I admit this edition is very tricky; I see many quick competitors to mistake a lot of controls and the slower of them are able to answer well but not so fast to win. The average for every station is about 90": you have to decide if to use all that time and don't mistake or to need less than 60" with one mistake..... It's a game's strategy!

Do you think TempO is a discipline to old man or disable people yet? You are wrong! in these years some young people have started to play it and now, you can see the results...
ITT Game is a window on this discipline; during the second day of ITT, some "great names" have played their cards. The first one was Remox, he was the better Italy's competitors but not the best (1247" and 33 errors); the second one was Marit and she has played very well (not like in the first edition) and her score was the first one under 1000 seconds (995 and 38). The next one was JKGB and his score was very good (1150 and 36) immediately behind the first day's leader Hongkongstyle. In the evening, Lauri ( 1053 and 36) tryed to take first place but he had the same time score than Marit but he made two mistakes more than Swedish girl. In the night, the surprise from Finland: Pinja Makinen! from the first edition of ITT, I'm following her performances and I'm not surprised about her score; she needed more time than Marit but she had hitten 44 right controls! now, the best time is 975 and it will not easy to Antti, Martin or somebody else to win this edition. I want to tanks all the competitors from Hong Kong: I can say: "HK has discovered ITT!"

After first day, Hong Kong is the Country leader of ITT: "Hongkongstyle" is the player who has scored the best result (1143" and 33 right controls). The second place is for Portugal with "Xeriph" (1243" and 37) and Jiri Fiser (Czech R.) has taken the third place (1287" and 40). Only fourth place for "Mamma Susy" who is the Italian specialist at next WTOC; The bronze medal of the first edition, Saku, has started his performance and after three stations his score is good but there are others stations to defeat... After the first day, I can observe there are only 2 stations very difficult others are easier.

The Italian Trailo's Chief has selected the athletes for WTOC 2013 in Finland:
Team leader is Remo Madella (Preo and TempO), Guido Michelotti (Preo and TempO), Marco Giovannini (Preo), Susy De Pieri (TempO), Francesco Valentini (Paralimpyc).
Eventual benches are Michele Cera (Preo) and Renato Bettin (TempO). Guido doubted about his presence due to his work but it seems he could be at the start; the coach had a difficult choise between Marco and Michele because Michele has won some competitions in Italy but his international experience is poor respect Marco who played well during the ECTO's manifestations. Despite Renato was better than Susy in the last TempO's match, the coach has selected Susy who has played well during the old TempO's competitions.
Next appointments are on June: on 8th and 9th in Rogla (Slovenia), 16th in Trakoscan (Croatia), 22nd and 23rd in Folgaria (Italian Championship).
Remo Madella, this weekend, is in Sweden and he has collected some good results (around tenth position in all the competitions); he need another step if he want to take the podium in WTOC.

After four rounds, ECTO's standing begins to show the real value of competitors; Lars Jakob Waaler adds 87 points to his score and now he has 148 points. Behind him, Ola Jansson (109 p.) and Stig Gerdtman (107 p.) seem in good shape but their middle score don't help their for the victory; William Rex has lost the leadership having 19 points more than after Norway's round. The real risks for Lars are Antii Rusanen (92 p. but only 2 results) and Lauri Kontkanen (78 p. and only 2 results) while Lennart Wahlgren and Marit Wiksell haven't sufficient good results to be in the top three. I remember you, the overall standing will be arranged with the five best scores.
54 people have at least one point and 137 are the competitors untill now; the next step will be in Italy on 22nd and 23rd June

Some years ago, I competed in Finland and I saw many old people who won the overall standing; I thought trailO was a discipline only for them but I didn't understand the reason. This week end I came back in Finland and I saw many new young faces and the combined results has told me that the trailO is changed. It's clear that PreO is an old discipline because only the faster competitors can win the manifestations. During the tempO competitions I have seen Antii, Lauri, Marit, Martin and other few people: I was very impressive to see their speed during the answer's time. I try to imitate them but my result wasn't the same.... congratulation to them!
Now, same numbers: four competitions, five standing, 90 competitors.... a very intersting weekend between Tampere and Turku. Antii Rusanen (79 points) has won the FintrailO competition in front of Lauri Kontkanen (78), Marit Wiksell (78 and 62"), Martin Jullum (78 and 86"), Martin Fredholm (77 and 60"); italian competitors were Remo Madella 13th (75 and 42"), Marco Giovannini 17th (74 and 20"), Renato Bettin 21th (73 and 33"), Elvio Cereser 34th (71 and 73"), Michele Cera 37th (70 and 25"), Susy De Pieri 59th (67 and 97"), Alberto Grilli 64th (65 and 39"), Giuliano Michelotti 69th (64 and 68"), Dario Citterico 73th (63 and 71"), Fulvio Lenarduzzi 78th (62 and 38"), Emilia Arcaleni 79th (62 and 96"), Marina Beltramo 83th (53 and 41").
Another possible long list of results is ECTO cup but I invite you to watch the link's site or to wait when I have finished to insert them in my database.

On 18th and 19th May in Finland there will be the third and fourth round of ECTO. In both days there are scheduled four competitions, two Preo and two TempO; the Saturday's Preo competition and Sunday's TempO competition will give scores for ECTO's overall standing. A new formula is used in this occasion: during the PreO competition won't be the time controls but the first station of TempO competitions will set the position of those who have the same right control in the Preo competition!
Nearly 90 people will take part in TrailO's manifestation: Sweden, Finland, Norway, Latvia, Russia are the nations more numerous but Italy has a good number of members in Kokemani.
The best Italian trailOrienteers will be in Finland only Guido couldn't be there; Remo will try to take the top ten place, Michele will be the Italian new entry as nobody (in Scandinavia) knows him, Elvio, Renato, Marina, Alberto, and the others already know the Finland's terrain and Marco will try to repeat the good competitions in Norway.
The next week, the Board of Italian Federation will call the five people who will go at WTOC.

Second day for ECTO and Norwegian Spring: a very interesting competition in the forest among rocks, knolls, hills and contour lines. Martin has planned another good round with easy controls and others very difficult like n. 6 (only 28% right answers). Only three people had the maximum score: Lars Jacob Waaler (23"), William Rex (32"), Erik Lundkvist (34"). Behind them 7 competitors had one mistake: Stig Gerdtman (28"), Tomas and Ola Jansson (33"), Martin Fredholm (34"), Marco Giovannini (36"), Michael Johansson (42") Rolf Karlsson (43"). Eleventh place for Marit Wiksell who has improved her position after the first day: incredible her time controls: only 14"!
The overall standing of ECTO is for William Rex ahead Ola Jansson and Lars Jacob Waaler. Next round is on May in Finland: there will be the finnish guys who were not present in Oslo.
Next week, I upload the "International" results where you can find (on ECTO menù) the single results and the overall ECTO standing.

The first round of ECTO is gone: Martin Jullum has planned 20 controls (plus 2 time controls without score's value); the first part was in the forest using rock and contour lines and the second part with some long distance flags in open area. I think the competion has been good and the map well revised. Five Swedish guys had managed a perfect score: Ola Jansson (16"), Michael Johansson (20"), William Rex and Stig Gerdtman (22") and Lennart Wahlgren (79"). Behind them 8 people had one mistake; first one who don't belong to Scandinavian countries was Tertsunen (10th and the only finnish), behind him a couple from Latvia: Guntar Mankus (14°) and Zita Ruksane (15°). Marit Wiksell will have to forget this competition because her 39th place is not her value. Italian team has played quite well: Marco Giovannini (19°) and Renato Bettin (22°) had two mistakes while Fulvio Lenarduzzi (31°) had three mistakes; Francesco Valentini has found many difficult to understand this type of terrain and his position is 72° place.
Tomorrow there will be the second round and everybody will try to do better.

This weekend, in Ostfold (Norway), it will start the unofficial ECTO (European cup of trailorienteering). Two are the rounds: every match will give some points for each position. The winner of ECTO will be who will have the highest score possible using 5 or less rounds. At this moment, 74 are the competitors in open elite; the most part of them comes from Scandinavia but there are competitors from Latvia and Croatia. Four people will rapresent the country of Italy: Bettin, Giovannini, Lenarduzzi and Valentini.
It will be very hard for them to reach the top ten but nothing is decided before the finish. The favourites are Marit Wiksell, Stig Gerdtman, Waaler's family, Fredholm's dynasty, Taxth Loland, G. Mankus, Oien, Tisljar I. and others.... but, I'm very courios to see one competitor: Olav Lundanes! I'll try to keep update you.... (if I'll find a free internet).

This weekend, while the best italian trailorienteers were in Rome, Remo Madella and Valerio Pfister were in Sweden to compete in some round of Sweden's calendar. The level of competitions was very high because the best Norwegian, Czech and Danish trailorienteers were present. Martin Jullum, Marit Wiksell, T.Loland, Stig Gerdtman were some of the "great" names in the competition; Remo, after first round (18th place) has reached two times the top ten: this is a good signal for his feeling towards the WTOC.
Valerio Pfister has competed well but the Nordic competitions have a number of excellent trailorieenters and his position is not so good than Remo.
On 20th April, in Norway, there will be the first round of EOTC but Martin couldn't win the competition (he's the planner).

On 20th April, it will start the first edition of European cup in Norway: despite the most part of Italian orienteers will be at Italian championship (middle distance), I think some trailorienteers could be at EOTC. I'm thinking to add the result of EOTC on world champs webpage.

New round for Italy cup and Cro-Ita-Slo trophy, today, in Valeriano (Italy); the best trailorienteers of Italy, Slovenia and Croatia were in competition in a cold afternoon. The map was a long stripe with only a path in the center; one side was a steep slope (contour line 5 m.) others side a torrent with micro reentrances. Some controls were "old style" and some competitors have fallen on ambiguos controls. Only Jasminka Cindric Perkovic (CRO) was able to answer cleany to all 16 control and only very difficult time control has soiled her performance. Behind Jasminka, again the couple Michelotti jr.(3) and Michele Cera(2) (both are Italian champs) have taken the podium despite two errors in the competition; fourth and fifth were Marco Giovannini and Dalibor Perkovic with the same two errors. Only tenth place for Remo Madella who didn't like this type of competition; the problems were for other "great names", too.

Third round of CRO-ITA-SLO 2013 in Slovenia during Lipica cup CO manifestation.
Today, in a raining day Kreso has planned 8 stations and 5 tasks for each station. The stations were scattered among yellow meadows and spare bushes; personally, I have learnt "upper part" of a long knoll, description not very used. Unfortunately, the water has made difficult the change of task because the plastic pages were joined. A good number of competitors were at the start despite the bad weather; among the best italian trailorienteers there weren't present Elvio and Guido M.
The winner was "Mamma Susy" (nickname used during ITT game) ahead Remo Madella (Remox) and Marco Giovannini (ITT planner); fourth place for Ivo Tislijar whereas Emil (5th place in ITT) Jasminka, Renato B., Michele Cera weren't in their best day.
Next sunday, in Bosco di Valeriano (Italy), new round of Italy's cup with all the best trailorienteers at the start.

The 1° Internet TempO Trophy is over.
During last day, a lot of competitors have tried to take the leadership but Finland has placed three competiors on the podium. We have 9 Finnish competitors in the top 12! The first one out of Finland is Emil from Slovenia and the Italian couple Guido and Remox were able to enter in the top ten.
I can say the most part of best trailorienteers have played and this is a big stimulus, for me, to continue this project. I'm receiving some advises to improve the game's option and I'll try to do my best. Now, the trailO's season is starting and I wish to everybody a lot of fun.
I hope to organize a new trophy before the WTOC.

Nobody was able to take the leadership; the news is the number of competitor is over my target of 50 people. Again, I saw many the Finnish competiors (a silver medal at WTOC 2012) and finally, the Latvian have discovered this game reading the message on their national website (I thank Janis). Today is the last day: I've not decided a deadline and I think to stop the game tomorrow, early in the morning.

Saku is the name of the day: he was very close to take the first place. He's another Finnish orienteer and I can write that Finland is the country most active on this website during these days. I'm very happy because I saw some people from Japan to play the training games: I hope to see their nicknames in the competition. My target of 50 competitors is very close and I can say the match was very "high level" because the competitors are the best for each Nation. Among the registrations I see other excellent trailorienteers but they are waiting for last minute to play.

Sunday doesn't bring new leader but the news is the name of a player: Tero! Have you ever listened to this nickname? He's the true Tero... His performance don't sound very well but he has played using an ipod! Finland has tried to add another leader but Marko has lost the podium after last game. We're wainting for Ivo's performance and other good tempOrienteer.

Sweden has played one of his aces: Marit Wiksell. She was the fastest to answer but she hasn't found the right feeling with some controls; 13 errors are too much to take the victory. Next days, I hope to engage Stig, Guido or somebody else of the top trailorienteers. In the night, from Finland, Lion has taken the third place: he's not a trailorienteer but he's an excellent orienteer! he spent the right quantity of time to study the tasks and he made 7 mistakes. Now, the podium is all for Finland....

The news of this day is the result of MartinJu: he has had some problems with the software and the controls... it wasn't the best performance for him but he wrote to me "I want the second edition because I want to score better.."; I think he has underestimated the trophy and his training wasn't sufficient to beat the Finnish guys. I noted the performance of krautrock: in the last four game he's scored like Antti but he was terrible trailorienteer during the first seven games...

Day 4 is been an important day: Finland has played its aces! Lauri and Antti have showed their class; Lauri was faster than Antti but he made one mistake more than him (6 vs 7). Lauri had an awesome score untill game 10 and he has preserved his first place for 7 seconds despite last one horrible score. Behind this excellent couple, there is Remox: he tried to answer very fast but some controls weren't in feeling with him. Now, the podium is very important but we wainting for others first rate trailorienteers....

No news about the leadership after third day; the only one entry in top five is the result of JanaK. Now, only one control remains without right answer! The most part of the players come from Czech R.

After two days, we have a new podium: Susy from Italy, Christian from Sweden and Pakuo from Chech. 23 are the right controls for Susy and 22 for L.Tecka; three are the controls too difficult (all the competitors have given the wrong answer) while Christian was the only one to answer right to another very difficult task. I'm waiting for other "great" competiors to understand the real difficult of my taskes.

Hi friends, I ask you a favour: during past weeks many people were here to visit the game and the site. I haven't their emails and a lot of them arrived here because some sites and blogs (expecially Spain, Norway and Hungary) have linked this site. Now, you're playing the TempO Trophy and his finish will be on 6th March; I regret if somebody of them will arrive here after that date. So, I hope if you have emails or blogs you can advise these trailO's friends. Thanks

Many registrations but few results; after first day I saw 5 competitors at the finish and more than 10 at the start. I am very interesting about some controls: are they too difficult? the best result is the score of Kreker he's a very good competitor) but only 19 controls are right! In the next days, I hope to see other good player to understand if my controls are too much hard.

Hi everybody, now you can play the TempO Trophy; pay attention when you register your dates. I suggest you to open "HELP: follow the steps" and read the red types near or inside the red circles. I hope you are honest and you play to enjoy yourselves...

Hi everybody, I'm working about the TempO Trophy; I have ready eleven games and in next weeks I want to organize the match. My idea is to register all the competitors with a registration online; the competion will be open for a week or more (I'll decide it later). You'll have a password and you'll play during this time your games; after every game, you can't see the solutions but only your score. At the end of the competition I'll post all the games on line for everybody; if you have others ideas please contact me to say your opinion.

Today, many Italian competitors will remember this manifestation: 40 controls scattered in 8 stations around the town near Venice! TempO is a discipline very exciting but today the difficult of some controls have increased the stress of the match. Remo Madella, when arrived at the finish, was confident his performance had 4/5 errors; when he saw the solutions, he wasn't happy because 10 errors were too much to win the competition. Elvio Cereser was very happy when he saw the solution because he had only 6 mistakes! But TempO is not PreO: Remo has won the competition, Elvio was only eleventh.... As you have understood, today everybody (except Elvio) have more than 10 errors but the penality (30" for one error) has rewarded who has spent few seconds to answer. The jury has deleted one control (right place but wrong control description) and has reject the protest about station 5 (some people have invaded the terrain during the competition and one competitor was impaired); curiosly, Jasminka was member of jury and if the station number 5 was deleted she would have been the winner. Behind Remo, the second place is for Kreso Kerestes, third place Jasminka Perkovic, fourth place Daniele Danieli, fifth place Tisljar.... if you think the name of Ivo you are wrong! his name is Antun and he's the future for Croatia team!

Today, in a sunny and not too much cold day, the Italy cup started in Martellago. There were 30 people to compete for the victory; despite many good trailorienters have competed only Remo Madella was able to make a winning strip of answers. Behind him, the only one with one mistake, the Italian champion 2012 (ex aequo) Michele Cera; two mistakes were for Dalibor Perkovic (3°), Dario Citterico (4°) and Marco Giovannini (5°). Bad news for Elvio Cereser (10°), with two mistakes in time controls, Alberto Grilli (13°) and Danieli Daniele (19°); good positions for Ivo Tsljar (6°) and Kreso Kerestes (7°). Renato Bettin, the planner, has submitted 21 controls scattered in a large park with two small lakes and rough vegetation; many controls were very far from the point of view and others were not easy to identify. I can tell it was a good competition with only one control unclear. Tomorrow next meeting: tempo formula in Marcon!

This weekend, two competitions are in Italy: on Saturday, in Martellago, the first round of Italy cup; on Sunday, the first round of tempO trophy. There are all the best trailorienteers except Guido Michelotti and Stefano Galletti. From Croatia and Slovenja there will be at the competition the most of the best exponents. Not offical news about Cro-Ita-Slo trophy but it seems that this round will be the first round.

Today, Italian Federation has a new President and new board. Which will be the future of Italian TrailO ? I don't know because in the programs of candidates about trailo there was only one sentence: "to involve CIP (italian commitee paralimpyc) in trailO discipline...." No words about national team, programs, trainings or something else. I believe nobody is interested in trailO: only the current competitors are thinking about the future, the remainder of movement will continue to think: "TrailO is discipline of low class"

New Year = new life !
www.trailo.it is working about a new look and to add some little trasformations.
Now, you can find the TempO Game and the International result database (perhaps it could have some mistakes).
Only on 15th January, FISO has publicized the Italian schedule; Remo's web site (http://www.remmaps.it/trailo/) has updated the 2013 trailO's manifestations.
On the blog of Joaquim Margarido you can find my interview; here, you can find the news about the second part of "treilonline" competition.
The first round of Italy cup will be in Martellago on 26th January.

Remo Madella has won the Croatia - Italy - Slovenja Trophy; he collected six results of eleven stages and he surpassed the three athletes who were in the podium. Second place to Renato Bettin, third to Elvio Cereser, fourth to Mateja Kerestes, fifth to Susy De Pieri and sixth to Marco Giovannini: all them have more than 500 points.
The last two competitions took place in Galgovo near Zagreb (Croatia); both stages were in the same terrain and map and many controls were very close. I could say the right name of these competitions is " the trailO of the counting steps" because a lot of controls could be find only with this tecnical method; the map was a long stripe of white wood with micro details and few objects recognizable.
The best, on Saturday were Madella, K. Kerestes, Michelotti Jr., Bettin, Horjan (but he didn't answer two controls); on Sunday the best were Michelotti Jr, I. Bertol, S. Zuzic, R. Bettin, M.Beltramo.
It's very strange to see some competitors in different positions despite the rounds were very similar!
