MTBO race (Middle Distance Champs) 53:37 [4] 12.37 km (13.8 kph) +218m
shoes: Avanti Mountain Bike

MTBO Champs weekend at Turners Hill, M60 course

Lois West came back through the start on leg 2 so I rechecked the map and liked the look of that route choice as it kept away from the single track and seemed a similar distance.

#3 was mapped as a clearing which was a bit confusing as it was in forest. It was close to a track junction so only 30sec lost as I stopped at the junction and looked back and saw the control.

#5 the tower at the top of the hill not much choice other than to grind up the steep track, made it 3/4 of the way up when I decided that I was going to blow a gasket and walked the last bit of the steep section.

#7 first part was lots of sticks on the ground so a bit cautious about flicking one into the spokes

#8 took off from #7 heading to the last #9 control but fortunately realised my mistake after about 200m and went back for #8 lost may be 2 minutes.

Drag race with MTBJen from the last control, got half a wheel in front at one stage but the Green Jersey to Jen, who out sprinted me.

Nice course with some decent route choice in parts and mostly tracks were firm

shoes: Black Asics GT 2000

Thought about going for a ride, but it was raining with lots of showers and I did not think it would be nice out there. Also just had a new chain, cassette and service so not wanting to fill the new parts with grit I decided to try and dodge the showers and go for a run.

Reabold 6km circuit but slow to start and a struggle up the hill back to the car park and look out but managed to keep going, just!

New shoes

Orienteering race 1:26:46 [3] 8.0 km (10:51 / km)
shoes: VJ Integrators

Forgot to take my GPS which is most likely a good thing as it would have been embarrassing to see how bad I was. had trouble from the start as I did no pick up the right tracks and was confused for a few hundred meters. Ran into the control circle but could not see the rocks for the black boys, a common story for me and many others! At least 5 minutes lost. More trouble on #2, #5, #8 & #9

A good course from Craig but not my day.
