I'll be around for the middle and long champs, so you'll have to cope with my amazing skills - sure to be enhanced by not really training and definitely not practising any navigation beforehand ;-)
Darnit and it's at Jumbuck Hill too, a venue that I always think I should do well at but never do.
Im just totally going to be claiming it is the extra suburb run training you've been doing giving you the competitive edge ;)
Is Jumbuck hill the one that was mapped by 3 different people? If so, I might reconsider coming - I still have nightmares about that place.
Alex Tarr has remapped the whole thing so you can rest easy (hence why we're now using it for State Champs) but it has had a fire go through since he did that...
Bryce, it has at least got me motivated to go running again so thanks!
Middle Champs will be at Jumbuck. Looks like the long day is being shifted to Marginata.
Clash with the Perth Trail Series? I kid, what's the reason for that? I quite like Marginata at times. Mind you it wouldn't be the first venue change this year (with Lovers Ridge being moved to Lovers Lane).
Oops, no it was Calophylla I was thinking of where I got my first podium at a WA MDC. Marginate I think is where I had a really terrible effort in the Aus MDC back in 2011 the week after the 3 Day, getting beaten by the entire field other than Tyson and Fletch with the MP. Yeah let's go there again :-)
No worries ricky - mobile app is almost ready so I'll be trying to push it further soon - it's just taken longer to get there than hoped. Btw in the next few weeks I expect you'll see a few more badges hit your account as I fix a few bugs.
As if Ricky needs more badges... :P
Ha ha - tRicky - that was the day I screwed up, had my family along for a picnic, so I bailed early, only to spend the rest of the day (until after the whole event was packed up) in the hands of the drug testers.
Getting access to the assembly area / parking that was wanted wasn't progressing because a landowner died.
Calophylla and Marginata actually overlap Ricky.
Hopefully on the day I will start behind Fletch and overlap him.
