SA Champs Middle - Grabouw Eikenhof Dam
Had a pretty decent race. Lost about 30sec on #6 - I came around the south of the hill and the control was further around and higher than I expected. The whole area in the control circle didn't look how I expected. I had another problem with visualization in the circle on #8 (lost 50sec), I was also starting to get pretty tired so not thinking straight by then. Caught sight of Tania on the way to #11 so that spurred me on for the rest of the course.
So quite a clean race, but not moving fast. Barely felt my back which was great.
Ended up 2nd, behind Steph with Jess 3rd. Paul ran 29:55.
While I don't really enjoy the way the start times were done, it added some new pressures which were quite interesting - having Christie 2 minutes behind me definitely played on my mind.
