Nice work, looks like a tough week and the heat doesn't help.
Straight and around looked pretty evens to me from the GPS, if you do straight agressivly and well. Top 10 had like 6 straight and 4 around. I think there's enough to catch you that it should be grand.
You were +4:14 to the junction by the open field and +3:11 on the last 3rd of the leg. (tulospalvelu has some really nice analysis features!)
I didn't do straight agressively and well. I could have bombed it around on the path at <4min pace which I'd say would definitely have been faster for me - just didn't see it as a route option
Fair, it was an odd direction out of the control
