55.406km with 884m climb in 2:58:53. Poldice valley mtbo. Reality good area lots of tracks in Cornish mining terrain more on the ground than the map though so care needed which I totally failed to give at the start. All over the place to 1 not sure at all which one to go for either. Caught by Will at one and lead him astray going to 20 a bit. Took 15 next to be different and get some simpler nav in. Wobble in circle for 19 into someone's gardens on way to 18 overgrown going to 17. Road around to 23 26 went back way came as muddy looking 22. Had to wait for a train.12 back with Will for a bit decided to out and back 13 from top 11 one road to early looking for 10. Some stray tape before 10 had me searching early. Decided I had rated to much to be on for getting them all so up for 7 AMD the road ride to opposite side of map via 6 then far quicker than expected as on old railway to 5 fast on to 4. Wanted to Cary on but caught about 10 slow moving horses after 200m so went back and did longer route instead for 25 nice single track for 2 zig zag down and up for 3.. Tried to get on old railway again but had to back out after dead end in farmland and go higher the way I had come. Ended up on lower track for 24 even though I thought it was wrong and went back. Nice decent to 16 by finish but still time left so straight past for 14. Decided against risking 21 and turned back for home.
40 point eg 2 control win. In retrospect should of gone 14, 21, 1 at the start. Would of needed to be a lot cleaner to clear and get 8 as well.
