All in all a mediocre race. Not bad for the Gats and nicely organized by Loup Garou. Was perfect weather. Had trouble executing route choice on long legs, mostly due to the bad map. Was pushing really hard on the hills. Coming out of #10 on the down hill at 100% velocity I tripped and flew several meters through the air. Landed face first into a stump decelerating instantly. There was no bounce or sliding. Felt like I'd been punched in the face. Nose is kinda sore and bloody. Incredibly no serious injuries to report. After the impact I stood up, checked consciousness, everything seemed fine so continued the race. Only had 4 more controls to go. Then coming out of #12 I mistook a pond covered in leaves as a clearing. Leaped onto the clearing and sank to my waste in icy cold water and gunk. Climbed out of the pond and finished the race soaked, covered in dirt, sweat and blood. Lost to Robbie by 6 minutes, mostly because of a bad control #9.
Nice weather though :~)
