I think i enjoyed the last day the most, though i was really kicking myself after a risk i had chosen for the long leg ended up on causing me to lose the race for the day (and possible the carnival). I was really clean through most of the controls except for a wobble on couple. When it came to the long leg it took me a long time to decide whether to go straight through the steep bit of crap and then have a whole heap of flat open running, or to take to gentle up hill and stay in the open for the whole leg with the climb throughout. I took the risky first option thinking that Juffy would probably take the safer option. Unfortunately the risk didn't pay off and i was 5th on that leg and that cost me the race. I may have actually not had the legs either way and possibly the race couldn't have been won by me, but we'll never really know. Still i was pretty chuffed to come second and was so impressed by the skills of Juffy, Sten and the other Sledgers they made for a really memorable Easter 3 Day.
