Mtn Bike race (MTBO) 2:34:31  34.0 km (13.2 kph)
First error - left GPS at home, so can't remember my time and worked out dist from nearmap.
Second error - confused start location with finish location, so thought I'd be heading east to start with instead of east (make that southwest). For some reason I always think that the bit of Kesner Rd next the assembly area heads east, when it heads south west, so had trouble believing my compass for a minute, eventually headed off in the right direction and soon passed area51 man, who was adjusting he's seat, then he passed me as I checked my bearings again, then he missed the track into ME, so I passed him after getting the control as he doubled back, after seeing him a few more times heading in random directions decided he must of been abducted by aliens and completely lost he's senses in the process.
Anyway no trouble finding controls once I'd worked out which way was up. Probably made some dubious route choices. Legs really burning heading up Scarp Rd towards the end.
Legs really not happy having to go back up to MR to collect the control, thought on the way up there it would have been easier to leave the bike in the car and jog it, luckily Kirsten had just parked next to my car as I got back to it, so I didn't need to drive back with the controls, unlucky for Kirsten who still had to go and get MP.
Thanks to Kirsten for setting a good course
