Thierry is M37, and ebone is in M40. The future is bright with potential.
Apples to oranges. Very fast apples that are good at orienteering, to oranges that are not so fast or good at orienteering.
Also, M35 is often a weak category (ie dudes like me). Potential podiums!
Just keep pretending you're elite like me. I've not yet surrendered to M35. Possibly when I'm in M45 I'll consider M35, then work my way up from there.
