NOL Relay at Hill End, 2nd leg for Cockies 2 and we came 2nd behind Cockies 1! Jarrah ran first leg and brought us in 6th about 4min behind the leading pack. I didn't really have my head into the terrain on the first leg but managed to limit my damages but it allowed a NSW junior team to get on my tail. Cautious but fine through #2 then headed right of the buildings on the long uphill leg. The NSW kid came charging up alongside in the steep section early but I reckon he stayed on the track while I stuck closer to the line and I never saw him again. Went left on the return long leg, which may have been slower but worked well for me and gave me a nice line into the control and I jumped up into 3rd place. Struggled to make any sense of the detail on the one after the spectator, managed just before descending into the mess but lost my cool and deviated from my plan, ran around like the proverbial chicken for a bit before relocating off a taped pit. Was caught by Dante Afnan here and chased him around the last section, thankfully he was running M20, and brought us in in 3rd place. Andrew than had a great run to pull us up into 2nd.
