I wasn't looking forward to running Red, and I intentionally didn't check the M45 entries to check my chances. Turns out I was 4th by a long shot.
Screwed up the first two controls. I'll check the track, but I'm guess 3 min on 1 and 4 min on 2. On both I felt like I did everything right, hit all my attackpoints, saw everything I expected except the right control. Splits say I messed up 5. I'm not sure I did except leaving it.
I think practicing last week on a map I don't trust hurt my confidence. From 5 on, I got comfortable with the map and started hitting everything really well.
Nice course. Only complaint would be some unmapped green, especially on the last leg. Could've saved a few minutes taking a different route.
