NZ Long Champs - Kuriheka
Short but steep.
A wasted opportunity to knock over Greg on his home terrain. Lost time on #3, first drifting, then being thrown as I got high enough up the hill to see the clearing. Eventually ran out to the paddocks. LOss of contact and confidence.
#5 I turned into a comedy of crap, crossing over first hill, then getting turned 90 degrees, relocating on fence, cross over next spur and gully in contact, up next hill where I lose confidence (form line here could be circular), run down spur away from control, then back up before attacking control (tree in forest) with negligable confidence and competence).
Fin after that, but that was 12+ minutes down the tubes.
