Swiss relay champs - bois de seyte vaumarcus - H135 (4/44
) - 1st leg
With Chris and Willi.
I did the first leg and I was surprised how good my legs felt (and ran ;-) ). After a safe start I found myself soon together with Koni W (I think I had the same forking as him all the way). No mayor mistake, just a minor wobble to six. At nine Rolf B could catch up with us and he seemed to be a bit faster, particularly on the downhills. After the obligatory passage Rolf had a different forking which was a bit faster and I also went a bit too much to the left because following him was a possible route but not ideal. Luckily Koni was searching this one and I could still do the passage through the finish area as second, just 20" behind Rolf. He was searching the first one after the passage and because Koni could catch up again we came in all together.
Chris could not keep up with the fast guys and had to let pass some. Still he came back fifth. Willi could keep the place and because of a wrong control we ended up on the fourth place.
