Caddihoe chase, day2 chasing start, slim 34 sec lead over Roger T., Rob Parkinson a minute behind. Blue, 4.8km, 215m, more climb than yesterday.
Started OK, chasing start, started in between Jackie & Clive, passed Jackie, was OK to no 1. no 2 was good, & 3 easy; 4 lost maybe a minute by going south. (Rob P went north).
Doubling back after no 5 i saw Roger & I think Rob P , at least 1.5 - 2 mins down, so I knew i was pulling away. Long leg to no 8 sadly I drifted too far north off the line, intending to aim off, but was too far north - 1 minute at least. An anxious minute til I identified the massive banked feature. (misty)
Careful near the end as first to these controls, & all good. Won the day & overall. A wet but fun, & successful, weekend. So long as I avoid Yellow start flags in future (nb. Kris Jones had a similar calamity yesterday in the World Cup Sprint final!!! https://twitter.com/Thekrisjones/status/1177973811...
Tim Lenton's return to O went extremely well on Short Brown / M45. His long leg time was mightly impressive .
