Change-over zone

Another magnificent arena for the Relay, on a cloudy morning with a little dampness – but not enough of that to dampen the enthusiasm of the big crowd. Huge cheers for the men’s mass start, and now we are following the race on the big screen with plenty of tracking to watch, plus some TV from the forest. There is a spectator control on the edge of the arena in a patch of high-visibility deciduous forest, then a long marked route including coaching zone, all visible to the spectators. In front of that a fast downhill run from the last control to the changeover, so a fine spectator bank with everything in sight – superb!
