WA long champs at Spice Brook. Was pouring rain all morning so not very pleasant conditions. Was one of the late starters which sucked a bit. And was disappointed to find out it wasn't a NOL! I can't understand why not. Anyway I haven't done much long distance stuff recently so just aimed to cruise around and save myself for tomorrow. Took me a bit to get into it, found myself drifting off line several times. Had a good section in the middle but then slacked back off through the shrubby sections a bit. Ended up a surprising 7th, only just behind 6th and 5th.
On another note my official time was 1 min slower than my Garmin, dunno what's happened there.
