Not terrible, but definitely not pretty. Lots of little errors, kept overrunning or tricked by nearby other features, again and again. 4 times in first 5 controls, ouch! A bright side was fantastically fun real route-choice legs:
4 - Over the top or around. I did over the top, think it was faster.
10 - Around left, around right, or over the top. I went around left, and went really well, quite fast compared to others who did over-the-top or around right, maybe the best choice?
15 - For this, I saw a high route, a mid route (along the shelf), and a lower route. Didn't like the lower, too long, climb back at end. Didn't like the middle, because the slope looked like I wouldn't be able to keep track of where I was on it, so went for the high route. Knew exactly where I was leaving the ridge, but then overran control anyways, boo. The mid route seems like fastest (Sam up by 3 min on this one, I think?) and apparently people could keep track of where they were.
16 - I only really saw the route I did, but you could also go over the hill, or around left. Could have improved by a more gentle cut down to the trail at the beginning, I think, and maybe more ferocity up that final hill!!!
As for what I need to do to prevent bobbles. QR shows I'm often just distracted off a line I'm maintaining fairly well right in close to the control, sometimes by a control on a similar feature (argh, #2) or a similar feature without control (#1, #8). My bearing was just off for #5 and #15, #5 I really should have noticed the distance from the nose with cliff more, for #15, just needed more care with bearing considering the fast decent and not hugely detailed hillside!
Also, looking at splits, was only 1 min down to Sam at #14, she killed it on those last 4 controls!!! (Or maybe I got way tired, or both.)
