By Stodge @stodgeblog

With temperatures in the high 30s competitors at the World Mountain Bike Orienteering Championships 2011 have been racing for qualification for tomorrows Long Distance Finals.

In the Men’s Qualifier Britain’s Ifor Powell, even with a good performance, just looks to have missed out by just 1 min being placed 21st in his heat.

In the Womens race solid performances by both Emily and Lucy have got them comfortably into the final being placed 11th and 16th respectively.

In the Junior Men’s Prologue Chris BB was placed 41st.

Tomorrows Long Final looks to be tough if the heat continues, the men’s race having an optimal length of over 35km with 1350 metres of climb.
