Ski Orienteering race (Lapland Lake) 1:26:36  ***** 8.6 km (10:04 / km)
spiked:13/14c shoes: Salomon Racing Skate 9
Long drive (technically long ride in the car). Bitter cold (-4F at 8:30AM, maybe 5F by start?). Complex O map compared to usual venues. The differences between small and large trails was often different than the map, which lead to more challenging orienteering.
No significant issues until leaving control 11. Broke a pole on the in/out bushwhack next to the flag. Floundered around a bit, then detoured back to the lodge to get new poles, so 11-12 was a 23 minute leg (~10-15 minutes extra). Avoided any additional bushwhacks for the final controls.
