Victorian Sprint Distance Championships
1st place in M21
Bryan second, 13 seconds behind.
Jim third, about 30 seconds back.
A good sprint course with many choices to make in complex building terrain. The start was quite complex, and I didn't quite feel like I was into the map until running to the second control.
I seemed to be taking 4 or 5 seconds out of Jim on most of the route choice legs. Perhaps these were good choices, or perhaps I was just a little faster.
I lost time on 10-11 as I lost concentration and thought that I had to run to 13. I punched it but realised and probably lost 10-15 seconds only.
The map was good quality, and there were no controversies with mapping or illegal crossings.
It will be fun to come back again for the xmas 5 days.
The field was strong for a state race, but could have been much stronger if the Kew East guys (Kerrin, Reuben, Liggo and Warren) turned up.
