The map for the sprint event is at 1:7500 scale with 5m equidistance drawn using the “International Specification for Sprint Orienteering Maps 2007”. As in foot-O events all private areas and features marked as impassable on the map are forbidden to cross. Competitors can only cycle on the areas mapped as brown on the map. All areas marked in yellow are out-of-bounds and even “corner cutting” will be punished with disqualification. There will be many controllers in the terrain making sure this rule is respected. The sprint model map has the same standards.

- Riders should ride on the right side on all roads and tracks. Overtaking slower riders should be done on the left.

Mapping Specifications

There will be two rules deviations from IOF mapping standards due to the specific characteristics of the terrain used in this WOC.

- Use of symbol 527 Settlement with alternative symbol (black line screen), to represent areas with houses and gardens that it is not possible to represent individually. Example:

- Relevant stone walls even if lower than 1,5m are represented on the map. There are many small stone walls in some areas and some tracks have one in each side making it a very distinctive feature. Example:
