MTBO race, Great Horsenail and Badger Slades, Cannock Chase.
Long course, 12 km straight line.
Lots of very muddy single track but not much route choice. Still great fun. Happy not to puncture and finish less than a minute behind Ifor.
8th place, 8 mins down on Ian Nixon.
78 mins for 12km. Would I have been quicker without my bike??
Edit: after a little analysis of the splits it appears that I made a couple of route choice errors. A total loss of around 1.5 mins at #16 and #21 which would have made a couple of places. Apart from that I was (unsurprisingly) a little slow on the more technical single track legs.
