MTBO race 2:00:13 [5] 33.02 km (3:38 / km) +775m 3:16 / km
ahr:152 max:165 14c

Aus MTBO Long Champs. Second, but about 9 minutes behind NZ Rob G.

1 OK caught Tony H who started 2 min ahead. 2 OK most of the way got away from Tony but bad route choice last 200m, probably lost nearly 1 min. 3 OK. 4 OK route but had a brain fade 3/4 way, partially up big steep hill then decided I'd taken the wrong branch at fork, went down and then decide I was right in the first place so back up hill, had to get off and walk some the second time, gps trace shows bit over 1 min. 5, 6 and 7 OK. Stopped at 7 for gel, drink and decide route choice to 8. 8, 9 and 10 OK. Rob G (4 min) passed me between 8 and 9, caught him again at 10. Messed up 11, couldn't see/find vague track on the route I decided, rode around to other major track to get from other side, easy spotted from main track on that side, lost 2:30 to Rob here. 12 OK though in wrong gear to get up steep start of track so bit of running. 13 OK though exhausted by this stage. 14 OK though starting to cramp along way. F OK though slow time.

Rob put another 5 minutes into me from 10 to F, 2:30 on route/execution to 11 and the rest ? not strong enough/fit enough?

ahr:157 max:172 23c

Aus MTBO Sprint Champs. In Dwellingup town and surrounds. First in M50 by about 3 1/2 minutes though about 3 minutes of errors in the rush of a sprint.

Took off to 1 with no real plan, just go fast that way, bush tracks not distinct, probably lost 30 sec. 2 and 3 OK. 4 missed turn and came around from other side, gps trace says cost almost 1 min. 5 OK. 6 OK along single track all way, others few seconds quicker on major tracks, though hit shoulder on tree on way and knocked off seat. 7 and 8 OK. 9 OK but had to pick way through parked cars at assembly area. 10, 11 and 12 OK though hesitation leaving 11 as mind didn't register control number as right. 13 and 14 OK though slowed by several slower riders on single track. 15 probably lost 20 sec as junctions far closer on ground than was expecting from map. 16 OK. 17 took poor single track route, didn't even see road route, lost 30-40 sec. 18 and 19 OK. 20 turned up wrong single track, just followed person I caught out of 19, lost 15 sec. 21, 22 and 23 OK, caught Rob G at 21 and raced off to stay ahead. Paused at 23 when Rob wasn't right behind me to check I hadn't missed a control, probably lost 10 sec on finish split.

Aus MTBO Middle Champs. Second, 53 seconds behind NZ Rob G. No errors though 1 small time loss interpreting clearing at 4 and 2 costly route choices towards the end, taking single track to 11 (2 min) and 15 (30 sec).

1 OK, though slight hesitation to spot track off old golf fairway. 2 and 3 OK. 4 OK but hesitation in clearing to work out where track came off, maybe 15 sec. 5, 6 and 7 OK. 8 OK though minor hesitation going through ruins near control, difficult to identify actual tracks. 9 OK but slow to get going through tracks/clear. 10 OK. 11 OK but chose single track which was obviously the wrong route choice, more than 2 min slower than Rob G. 12, 13 and 14 OK. 15 OK but again went single track, didn't really notice the major track route until too late, 30 sec down on Rob. 16, 17 and F OK.

Aborted morning ride. Sliced side wall of back tyre and after several attempts to get it to seal decided I couldn't be bothered putting a tube in so "limped" back to the car. Fairly new tyre as well.
