Lost a bit of time on the first leg so lost touch with the leaders. Not then helped by trying to leave the showgrounds on leg 2 (bike) the wrong way losing even more time. A bit of excitment leaving the next control as someone was coming up the path on the wrong side meaning I had to leap of the bike to avoid a head on, managed to stay on my feet so no damage done. A bit sketchy through the next two before getting my eye (and glasses) in. No problems in the 3rd (run) leg. Coming out of transition into leg 4 (bike) I had the wrong map showing so promptly heading off in the wrong direction before realising my mistake. Took the slippery wooden steps down to and back up from 16 & 17, still not sure what was best. Bit of confusion working how to come out of 20 before realising it was an out and back.
A good event, probably one of the best DuoOs, with controls in the right place, accurate map and some thought involved to pick the best route. 3rd in Hard 2 to O-ing & Rob Prentice.
