I thought this was a great course; technical and interesting terrain. Thanks Dersu. I just didn't bring my A game. It started snowing at control 5 (not surprising giving the course setter) so visibility was hit or miss depending on how wet my glasses were or how the snow was on the terrain. Underestimated distances repeatedly (which cost me big on 7), made a 180 out of control 17, and had a ton of errors linked to poor focus. Frozen feet stopped flexing by control 20 and were thwapping the road pretty hard on the long leg. Bottom line, I should make a point of sleeping more or better.
