Didn't feel as good as yesterday while warming up. Thought I should've gone out first, but was put in 3rd leg with Simon first and Will 2nd. I went out in 2nd place about 30 secs down on the lead and knew I couldn't hold on to that, but thought I had a chance at 3rd.
Started well for the first few, then Ian went past when I lost 30 secs at 5, then lost about a minute when I was back in the same area at 10. Hadn't seen anyone else, so wasn't sure if they had gone past or not. Went past the start on the long leg to 14 to show them how I was going, then misjudged how far I had gone up the gully and turned off too soon and lost 3 mins. Bruce caught me at 15 and I knew I couldn't keep up, so backed off a little. Bruce decided to cross the double fence to 16, but Simon told me it was quicker not to, so I gained a bit of time there and we got to 16 together. My route along the creek to 17 was quicker, so I got in front, but i had nothing left for the sprint to the last control and the finish. Bruce got me by 7 seconds for 3rd place, so we ended up 4th.
A little disappointed at losing so much time on the course, but Bruce did too, so that was even I guess. Tried as hard as I could in the finish sprint, so not disappointed about that.
