so the tactical error was not stopping at the finish on the way to the start?

I lost fifteen seconds in the chute in Canada in the sprint. So very frustrating.

Yes, I walked right by it, but didn't look at anything. Would have helped not get the tunnel vision and blow by finish flags within spitting distance of the go.

I thought I learned that from my trip to CAOC, where unlike SMOC they don't have the finish punches on the starting table. So I had tried to do that. I'm reminded!

I screwed up the chute at the last Pig. It's hard when you want to hammer that, so redlined and can't think straight.

I was the 394th fastest in the chute.

Prevailing winds from the w so the banner was just an edge. View from GO

Without thinking to look for them, and then with supersprint extreme tunnel vision, the flags blended with the banners for me that day. I scouted today for sure and shaved like 27 seconds off.

Took me a while to find the banner.
