Congrats on an awesome race, Bent! Especially in these conditions and your recent setbacks - amazing result! :)
Wow, great result, especially for someone who had to hold back! Nice mud! :)
Yep, couldn't have hoped for much better.
2nd Solo to DD11, who is on fire this year. Can't complain about that!
Nice to have matching gold medals with Bash. The way things started out I thought I'd need to get a "My wife beats me" shirt.
We'll arrange a paddle coaching session, haha!
Great seeing you out there!
You too FB. You and I did OK for a couple of old gimps.
my stupidity hurt us more than my bad knees! :-(
I was lucky my stupidity didn't flare up this time. Other than going South from CP2 on the bike vs North but I thought it was mandatory, so only a mild case of the stupids.
Do you mean from CP 2b to get back on original course... if so I think you did it right. We went North (as did DD11 I believe) which may have saved a few hundred meters of linear distance, but added a couple of hills and was a softer road (fortunately there were no big hills on the course!)
I Think our route cost us a few (3 - 5) mins?
Yep, that's what I meant, CP2B/6. I think it was a touch longer and hillier to go the way I did. It looked like DD, Pullin Foot and maybe another team made time on me there. OK, the mild case of the stupids is now only a maybe.
Great work Bent! Good to see you back at it!
Really great to be back at it. I really enjoyed this one. Even being crushed by you ;)
Awesome result looks like your back!
Glad you got to taste some mud!
