Middle distance summary
Control point where I had a time loss Time loss Reason for time loss
#8 4 min and 36 seconds Navigation mistake, should approach this control from south west via the clearing, instead I have tried to be smart approaching it from north and failed
#10 12 min 46 seconds Map misreading
I simply went from 9 straight to #11 but realised it only at #12 throwing to the trash the opportunity to beat Michael Ridllely Smith to the bean!
#15 5 min 40 seconds Navigation mistake
It often happens to me that I have become disoriented after leaving singles back to the fire tracks. Why can't I just stop and look on the map before I am wondering where I am?

Things to improve
• Map reading add hesitations
• There was no reason to mock control #10! at all
• Stop for few seconds when leaving singles back to the fire tracks!
Rank in the race: 4th
If there was a day when I had the best opportunity to beat MRS today was the day! But instead I made sure I threw this opportunity to the bin by doing a massive mistake with control #10 (just skipping it from some reason and went straight to 11 but realised it only at 12). Splits suggest I was 2nd at control 7 I won 2 splits and took 5 seconds. Yes, I had issues with the suspension and fell twice, that is just an excuse, but I must be stronger than my excuses! For god sake.
Well… I can be pleased by the performance of half of this race which was more longish than middle distance event by its nature. Lesson learned? Hopefully!
