MTBO (Middle Distance) 1:20:01  13.0 km (6:09 / km)
Took the big track option for the first control - longer but faster. Then headed for control 3, not seeing that control 2 was on the same line. It was when I reached 4 that I realised I missed 2 and had blown my chances for this race with an 11m mistake. From 2 on the single track missed the exit to the wider faster track to the right and lead 2 others away from my intended route choice. Not a lot of enthusiasm for 3 & 4. The fifth control was missing. Given I was clearly and unambiguously in the right spot I took off for 6 but not too soon to see a sheepish dalto arrive with the control.
on to 7 for some strange reason I took the more navigationally challenging route and stuffed it up. I relocated away from the single track and then found it. Mistakes towards the end of the course were related to overtiredness.
Somehow I clawed back to 3rd place for my age group
