Slovenian triumph (but not for me)   Leave a comment

The last day of the Cerkno Cup was at Cerkno Ski Center, at a height of 1300m, in steep but runnable continental terrain. The skies cleared up and the weather was brilliant, but the course was really tough physically, with 400m of climb over 6.6 km, and although I made almost no mistakes my competitors were fitter and faster and I dropped into a deserved 4th place. I should have taken my chance in the more technical terrain of the first two days, where I could race on more even terms, but I didn't. It was fun competing, and thanks to OK Azimut for a great competition.
What was even greater fun was seeing Roni (my girlfriend) win the W21A class, even though she stopped training 3 months ago and has had health problems for a while. I'm sure the total lack of pressure helped, and she had three solid races which demonstrated the quality of her orienteering.
