Thanks for letting me borrow your map. I will scan and publish it for you this evening.
I agree with your observations on 12 and 13. I am impressed that you were able to restrict the time loss to only 20-25 seconds. It is always hard to know where to look next when the control is not on the right feature. I also noticed that the rocks here were mapped differently on the LiveLox map compared to the one that we ran on. There must be a couple of different versions of the map floating around.
12 was weird. It's hard to believe that open ground on the map can turn into green forest in a couple of years.
The depressions at 4 also felt a little dodgy to me.
I also felt uneasy going straight from 13-14. The vegetation appears to have changed a fair bit on that hill side.

It’s comforting to know that I wasn’t the only one that felt uncomfortable at those controls. Maybe some of my time lost can be explained by the map - hopefully not an issue at the upcoming races!
