NAOC Middle - Tough run. Wet and rainy. Bobble at #2 (1 min), then slipped and fell on wet rocks on the way to #5. Banged up my knee, landed hard on the side of my chest and cut my hand to boot. Finished it off Ok, however. Ended up 17th. Winning time 30:57 by Michal Besta. Top North Americans: Ross Smith, Mike Smith and Eric Bone.
NAOC - Thomas at Kimberly Nordic trails. Good run - a couple of tactical mistakes during the Score-O. Small bobble on one control during the Sprint. Overall, ran at about 80% to save myself for the days ahead.
Larch Hills Traverse with Rob, Rob and Rob (Hart, Nash, Van Varseveld). Celebrating Rob Nash's 40th birthday with cold beer at the high point. Hot ride up to Larch Hills from S. Canoe, then really nice riding along the single-track up high. Total time out about 5:40. Finished up with a refreshing swim in the lake at Sicamous.
