NSW Med Champs.
My chance to claw something back.. and it didn't work.
Lost a minute at the start trying to work out what was going on with the tracks. Then has a slow and shakey 6mins into the first control as i sorted out navigating in the pagodas. After that it went well and i seemed to be dead on (slow compared to others but at least accurate). I think the 9-10-11 leg was a waste since it just a backtrack along the same route from 10 as going there. 11-12 could have been better as well. should have stayed high. From 13 though it all went totally wrong as I left the pagodas and went into open country.
Got really confused on the accuracy of the map near 14 which cost me and severly undershot 15 and then in the confusion messed up 16 :(
This day should see RL definetly overtake me for 1st in the State League. No real surprise - i'm unfit and carrying more wieght around than i was at the start of the season.
