Second day of Ottawa O-fest, long distance. Thankfully a little cooler than yesterday, but still hot enough to be uncomfortable by the end. The terrain was mostly flat which some deep, steep gullies. The bush was thicker than yesterday, and I was moving through it pretty slowly (definitely at <80% speed through all the white). This was my first ever chase start. Started 6 minutes behind yesterday's winner Forest, and 16 seconds behind second-placed Anton. Anton and I took different routes to #1 and to #2, but I saw him at both controls. Then we also took a different route to #3, and I didn't see him again until he suddenly appeared again at #8. Then I straight away lost him again until we ended up running side by side to the spectator control #13. It seemed like it might be an interesting battle to the end. Unfortunately I messed up #15 (stopped a gully short) and that was race over. Finished fourth on the day, but still held on to third place overall, so I ended up on the podium and got a little souvenir to take home.
