Event descriptionTwo low key events on the famous Le Caylar area. An opportunity to prepare for nearby O'France 2016. Part of the same organising team that brought you one of France's most talked about events in 2015, the Nationale SO. Saturday 9/4 : a classic distance on an old area, not used since 2007 and finally getting the complete remapping it deserves, with the same "tough but fair" 1:10000 mapping style as for the Nationale SO 2015. Sunday 10/4 : a fun "long sprint" on a rock labyrinth area remapped at 1:4000 in 2015 using the ISSOM sprint norms.
Terrain descriptionMostly rough open, with lots of contour and rock detail. This is world-famous orienteering terrain, a regular training ground for France's recent generation of champions.
