X-C Skiing (Pitea SkiO Masters) 1:16:14  10.09 km (7:33 / km) +118m 7:08 / km
Long course. Good start then into the narrow trails. Worked thru the first 10 junctions okay, then missed one coming off the top of a hill and got the next by mistake. Put me in a plummet to the bottom of the hill, bouncing off trees. Lost. Figured out the likely problem and worked over and up the hill, finding the control with 15 min lost.
Then back down the same initial trail to the bottom and off to number 3. Then more small trails with a little on a big one. Another hill section, better this time and a couple controls in a flat forested maze. Fast and fun.
Three legs just off big trails with a trivial dogleg. Then into the finish.
Snow was firm and fast just below freezing. Narrow tracks 42” wide with 10” berms. Small pine trees right next to trails, bounced my shoulder off maybe a dozen on the down hills.
