What a shame, you seemed to have been in good shape to challenge.
Kinda good feedback for ordinary folk like myself that I am not stupid for taking things carefully in difficult terrain to limit risk - as competitive as I am, after all it is just a source of enjoyment and self-improvement journey for many of us who are not in the game on the sharp end as much as yourselves. Reminds us also why you are where you are.
It has to be fun - no point doing it otherwise!
Equally if you want to win / do well - you have to push hard in all terrain types.
