Qualification round at the Presidio with Presto! Fun, fun! My legs were feeling it a bit from yesterday, but I could still push a bit. I had some trouble getting into the map and bobbled the first and second controls. I settled in after that and it was clean. Lots of fun tricky walls and vegetation and stuff, and I made it into the A final!

Sprint Final at the Presidio with Presto! The final was a reverse chase, so Marie-Jose was right behind me. Of course, I immediately blew the first control. Then Presto had to pee on the way to the second control, and Marie-Jose caught me by the third control. By the fourth we caught Chris, and now we were a proper pack :-).
I hung with Marie-Jose, keeping a close eye on my map, looking for places to get ahead. There were a lot of micro route choice options, but most of them seemed to be about equivalent. I finally got my break-away chance at 21 and was barely ahead for the rest of the race (although I never managed to make that minute back up). Julia caught up to us by the end as well, and awesomely, all 4 women were in the finish chute at the same time :-). Super, super fun weekend!
