T'was good fun. Never right on my limits, but not far off by the end of it all and pretty knackered after.

Your log says you missed a turn, could he have passed you then?

We were within sight of the correct track, and it was only about 1km into the ride, so I doubt we lost that much time. Didn't have to double back, just rode a softer, rockier track parallel to the dirt road we were meant to be on before cutting up onto it. Guess it's possible, but I'd be surprised.

Ahh yeah I see what you mean now in the splits. What was the 1min run at the end? Looks like you made a 30sec error on it.

It was a token run out of transition, around a cone on the beach and up the finish chute. They weren't very good at enforcing the 'going around the cone' bit. I went the wrong way for about three steps, turned around and did the right thing. 30 sec finish split = ignored the cone. If there is ever a sprint finish in the Ultra (where there is cash on the line), they're gonna need to sort out their finish system.
