Røsskleivaløpet, a mass-start orienteering race near Langesund. Complete chaos in the beginning and ended up a fair bit behind. I caught the leaders on #3 and ran first after that. Lead the way from there and navigated pretty solidly for once. Was hoping to break away from the pack and almost got a break, but they were always able to catch me on any slight hesitation. Had a 10s error on #13 since I didn't see the flag and ended up behind 4-5 people. One guy got away and I had to run hard to catch up. Caught him on the way to the last control by scrambling down a hill. Didn't have very much energy left at the end. The last control was in dark green in a stone field and when the leader angled off from the trail into the woods I gambled a bit by continuing along the trail hoping I'd be lucky and find a better approach. The gamble didn't pay off since another guy snuck in front of me. A bit bitter result, but I felt my navigation was really good today, there was just no chance to break away from the pack.
3rd overall, Mathias 5th. Results Map
