Summary sprint MTBO racehttp://obasen.orientering.se/winsplits/online/en/d...
Two control points where I lost time:
CP7: I Was distracted by another (near by control point) and lost 30 seconds by riding towards the wrong one (Navigation error)
CP 15: The control looked in the map like the finish control (several others had the same issues) so did not go to the right control point until realised it (3 min 12 second), lost my air stick capability as result of this, so punched manually afterwards.. (map reading issue)
30 second chain issues / mechanic
Total time loss was approx.: 3 minutes and 42 seconds
Time without mistakes and mechanics could have been: 37-38 minutes
My navigation was almost clean, map reading for CP15 could have been better, took me a while to realise it was not the finish control. Others also had the same issue. https://www.strava.com/activities/1152079640
Good things: almost clean from mistakes.. It is the 4th race in 2 years I have finished in top 3 places
Won 3 splits and 5 2nds...(-:
things to improve:
Map reading, took me a while to realise that CP15 was located somewhere else and not in the finish control
Can ride faster in the long legs..
