Came 4th but quite annoyed because i messed up on the long leg and the one right after it and it cost me a podium. The first 5 legs went pretty good and i was trying to go steady and nail every control. at number 5 i was 2nd, 1 minute and a half ahead of the others. Matthew was ahead by a long way the whole way. on number 6 i took a safe route choice but when i was coming off the path i rushed it and had to relocate. I was still in second when i got to the control though. For number 7 i crossed the open and went along the ride, but came off it too soon and when i went into the re-entrant i was too low. my garmin says i run just past the control but i couldn't see it because the bracken was high. I relocated onto the hill and looked down and saw it but id lost a lot of time and slipped down to 4th. 8 and 9 were fine then i ran the wrong way up the run in to the finish and felt rally stupid.
