Race Evaluation

Troll Cup, NE Champs: Day 1 Red


1. Bad route choice
Lacked confidence
Took trails to the left - right option would have been easier.
3. Did not follow plan
Bad compass work
Intended to take trail but left #2 going due south so continued straight. Hesitated at rocks on edge of circle. Surprised to see I have the fasted split - I was sure the trail would be faster.
4. Went south of first hilltop to small pond, then across reentrants to control.
5. Confused parallel features
South on trail, cut corner, followed stone walls to edge of large marsh, then east uphill into long reentrant, crossing both stone walls. Attacked too early, into light green between knolls.
7. Bad map reading
Confused parallel features
Could not relocate
Took trail. Left it too early and climbed reentrant to the south. Continued NW on across broad hilltop before relocating and approaching control from SW.
9. Ran a bit too far on trail before attacking across hilltops to the south.
10. Confused parallel features
Confused once I crossed trail. Turned up wrong reentrant (with dot knoll).
11. Careful, but spiked.
12. Hesitated at edge of circle, then saw competitor running into control.
13. Did not follow plan
Ran too fast
Did not like map
Could not relocate
Intended to attack from saddle to south. Missed completely, passing near trail junction instead. Ended up on unmapped 2m rockface several contours below smaller rocky ground. Thinking I was there, went due west looking for linear rocky ground and found nothing. Vectored uphill and SE to control.
