Orienteering race 45:25 [4] 5.37 km (8:27 / km) +143m 7:28 / km
shoes: VJ Integrators

Aus Champs Relay Moondyne Road

M55 Team with Rob West and Ken Post, with me 1st leg.

I knew that the first two runners would be Geoff Lawford and Rob Vincent so it was a race for 3rd in the rest of the field. Long 1st leg had people guessing and split the field up straight away, I went right and when I came out along the fence I could see Bruce Bowen 100m ahead. The legs were sluggish on the steady climb but Bruce was confused in the circle and I got the control 1st. Saw Phil Taylor and Tony Radford on the way to 2 and battled to get past them on the rest of the course but managed to get away on the last couple when they made small mistakes. pretty clean run through with a hesitation at 12 where I was a little off line and there were lots of rocks to pick from and I did not want to make a mistake at that stage.

Managed to get in 3rd of the start block so happy with the run.

Again a nice area and good courses from peterk and Russell Candy controlling.

Aust Long Distance Champs Warranine Brook

First starter and screwed up the 1st control stopping short and looking on various rocks and lost 1min, then went wide to #2 and lost another 1 min and Nick Dent 2nd Starter caught me at 2 and started to get away but I was able to haul him in and we played tag for the rest of the course. Pretty spot on through 3, 4, 5, 6 then on the long leg both Nick and I went east of the knoll when it looks like west might have been a bit quicker. We both end up too high at 7 and I went down, correctly, and Nick up so I got a 30sec break which was not enough as Nick was back equal 11. Managed to run in a few meters in front of Nick but still nearly 2 minutes down. Ted came through for a convincing win 3 minutes ahead of Roch with Adrian and Bert in 4th and 5th places me 6th and then Bruce by about 30 sec

Good race and would not have been able to go much faster with a loss of maybe 2 minutes total on control circle errors

Nice map with more detail and tree cover than I had expected.

Road Cycling 1:24:00 [4] 40.93 km (29.2 kph) +280m
shoes: Colnago CLX

Chasing Eoin around the river - good job Eoin was

a) on my old Piave
b) riding in runners on flat pedals
c) never got out of the LCR

Or I would have been dropped early, hung on until just before Majestic climb.

We were on 30kph pace but lost it on the last few Km
1 PM

Orienteering race 43:24 [3] 5.41 km (8:01 / km) +73m 7:31 / km
shoes: Innovates

Peterdine Scatter event as part of the Karnival

Took O-Ing's start and did course 2 - 18 controls out of 22.

Nice run around Peterdine, a bit warm but lots of elephant tracks and people coming and going from the controls so pretty straight forward.

ran about 70% and walked the rest
