From TG on WOC terrain:
sticking to the red line is the fastest option and every extra meters is clearly unnecessary. Definitively a skill I need to develop. With the maps being more and more accurate (thanks to laser curving and other mapping methods), in my opinion, compass skills will be even more important in a near-future. Couple of years ago, "jumping” from features to features was, maybe, the safest (not necessarily the fastest though) technique to avoid map´s distortion. But, nowadays, it might not be risky to hit a rather small target 2-400 meters ahead if you are enough precise with compass."
The maps look as though raw running power will be advantageous. Open bare rock and lots of up and downs.
