Day 1 - Auchingarrich
Started off well by picking up the wrong map twice and binning at least a minute. Fine through the first five, then just couldn’t find the ride to 6. Hit the control fine was just faffing in the green for too long losing 90s. Fine again through the next section, not perfect but no major losses, just trying to pick up tracks to the controls. Coming out of 12 bearing looked fine to 13 but was slightly left. Thought I was too far right though and ended up way off left at the fence. Finally found 5mins later and rushed off losing another 2mins at 14. Just tried to follow the rides into 15 not wanting to mess up again but just forget about my compass and ended up way off left again losing another 3mins. No mistakes after this just no motivation to push it. Ended up in 8th or something 17mins down on Jim 14mins on Joe but only 7mins on Sunley. 3rd was definitely possible if I’d a kept it clean.
