Men 2006-08-04 13:29:02
So Thierry, Novikovs, Andersson, Wingstedt is not in for gold anymore.
Men 2006-08-04 13:28:34

Finish very soon for Misha Mamleev, but he seems to have lost some time.
Men 2006-08-04 13:03:08
We believe that the problems with GPS is due to all rain in the forest, wet leaves can hide some signals and make the position wrong. Its raingin a bit now.

Men 2006-08-04 12:53:51
C Nielsen looses some more time to spectator control, now 2.13 behind, and probably he has lost little more because Malmeev lost the lead to that control.
