H21E 5.8km, 30 controls
19th of 30
Kept it together fairly well in the tricky terrain until near the end, then totally awol at #24, ran up the wrong valley and looking in amongst the wrong rock pillars. Came out to relocate on the path, did that wrong as was rather further from the correct location than expected...
In the end lost 9.5mins and a decent result, probably 6th or 7th turned into 19th there.
A few other scrappy bits costing maybe 4-5 mins so not perfect otherwise, would however have struggled to do Dave's 48mins (4th)
Winner Oli-Markus Taivenen 42mins
Nick B 58 and Martin 63 not covering themselves in glory either.
