Easter 2011: Day 1 - Frazzled Begins
10:59 AM. York. Burned 475 calories.
Course: 99 5.1 km 205 m
The Mass Start! As it turns out the race wasn't black tie after all - silly me for wearing my suit and bowtie. We all lined up just a stone's throw from the toilets and raced up the hill to the first control. I was a little stunned, no one else appeared to push to the first control and i got there to win the split and the hearts and minds of the adoring public. Pretty soon i was passed by Juffy, and most of the faster people. The second leg was the long one and Juffy led them astray on a less than ideal route choice, while i was left alone to plunder the control. Despite me not having the pack to assist me i mananged to punch this control only a couple of secconds AHEAD of the pack, so my route choice stacked up. I lead for the next couple of legs until my legs decided the hill was too tough. I wobbled up the hill and fell way behind the front pack. The down hill leg wasn't so flash and i think i caught up Juffy and Sten (Juffys parasite for the day) as i saw them leaving the control. Then i chose the wrong route choice and took 2 others with me - Andre and Michael. The rest of the course was spent trying to catch up to Juffy and Sten but they were too far ahead. I finished in 3rd behind those two and was really quite tired after racing in my Tuxed-O.
