Fierce Competition   Leave a comment

I finished 4th in yesterday's national event at Tel Govel, and I'm happy about it. The competition in H40 this year is ferocious – in four national events, we've had nine different people in the top three, with no-one more than twice, and with 7 events out of 11 counting for the final rankings I expect a long and tough season. I'm already at a disadvantage, because I missed the last two races (through organising them), but that's just pushing me to try harder.
Here's a small table with the placings in the first four races, to illustrate the situation:
My route from yesterday is here. The race was too physical for my liking (5% climb), but that's just part of the challenge. I lost time on the long leg (10-11), by not finishing it properly on the single-track leading to the control, and at control 15 by attacking the area instead of the control, and not seeing the small path to the north.
