Metro event at Stratton. Mad dash to the first control which was clearly visible across the oval. Good thing there were about seven punches there. After #3 I took over the lead from Riley and it was a pretty lonely run from there. By #5 I had to decide on a route, but I wasn't quite ready yet. It was a well set course with no obvious good route. The decision I made didn't seem great to me as I was running the rest of the course. It wasn't terrible either, but turned out to be about 200 m further than what Andries did. However, he had already done the training in the morning and wasn't feeling so great, so in the end I had a comfortable win. Now I only need a place in the top 4 next week to win the series.
