Started exactly how I wanted to; controlled and flowing. Was a little iffy on #5 but nothing too major. Caught Ewan at #8 and from there my focus went and things went to shit. Lost time in the green of #9, 10, 11. Ok for a bit until #18 whereby I started navigating to #17 again so stopped to work out what my compass was doing having taken the bearing to #18 from #16... Then proceeded down the path for a while before coming to my senses. FFS. Just circle scrap from there on but still more time just going out the window.
I know that I can do the technical side of things, just need to focus when I'm racing others because it is faster running with others, as long as I stay focused on my technique and use the others as backup. Not a great weekend !

Good through the first 14 round the simple stuff, then lost a minute round the last bit, through lack of confidence in my first judgement and just being careless. Very annoying as wasn't too far down after the first 14. Not a good day.
