SSS 8 at Pymble (Bannockburn)
Hilly streets with plenty of options around the start/finish. Lost about 50s at #4 which was hidden behind the tree and the another 10s at 19. Apart from that, nav'd well. Conceded defeat to Ondrej as he zoomed by me on the way to 26, although I pepped up when I saw he went for #9 which I thought was too far out of the way (but as it turned out it wasn't too far for his speed). Pushed through the hilly southern part to finish with a minute to spare.
Skipped 3 & 9 for 580. Well off Ondrej's 4min/km pace but somehow managed match his score... he was unlucky not to get the 600 - mp'ing #2 and overestimating the course. Keelan 560.
