Amesbury Urban Race - Vet 40+/Women's Open
Started quickly and felt pretty good , the odd seconds hesitancy here and there but nothing major apart from no.10 where I rushed out of control to get away from guy I caught here and turned left before realisong there was no route that way (10 secs), quickly over took him again only to lose time on an iffy mapped small path.... it was shown as coming out onto a paved area, but went down what I thought was path, whick looked like it disappeared behind a fence.. went back and down path a little further but no otger path...went back and turned out it was correct path (35 secs).
Coming out of 12 (with that guy again) - dog legged, but then realised that there was far too much climb that way, so returned passed the control westward (30 secs)
No.16 - poor route (10 secs)
Only other significant time loss (10 seecs) was getting stuck on fence between last control and finish!
Good fun, but timed out road crossings were a bit odd as was same crossing point, but two sets of controls a short distance from crossing.
Looks like I slowed in second half as left achilles a little sore - was 31 seconds up at no.10 and 1:07 up on Richard B
3rd.... 3:11 behind Richard Barrett and 0:17 behind Peter Suba.
