US Classic Champs Day 1
Couldn't believe it when I turned over the map, wasn't expecting the whole area to be like the map sample they showed us.
The terrain was such a joy, I had a big grin on my face through the whole course (whilst on the plateau). Funnily, I was never really motivated to race hard - possibly cause I don't really see the point of calling this type of event a 'championship' (and I'm pretty crap in terrain like this).

Thought I was having a pretty average run through the technical stuff, but it actually wasn't too bad looking at splits. Lost total contact on the long legs and got very worried when I realised, but was fortunate that the course setters put the controls quite close to obvious features and I didn't really lose time on these.
Unfortunately, I turned my brain off after the last control on the plateau and made 10 minutes of mistakes on the last 1.5km down the hill to the finish. Should have done around 80 mins.
