MTBO race 3:00:00  43.5 km (4:08 / km) +570m 3:53 / km
shoes: Giant XTC
Midlands MBO - Medbourne Arable area, mixture byways, tractor ribbed bridleways, sticky clay.
Race time 3.25, moving time close to 2.50 of which 15-20 mins were mechanicals.
Unlike my first event, just about everything went wrong.
Arrived late & when I started they were going add 25 mins & not start my SI.
Bike wouldn't change to large ring without the chain jamming and having to set by hand x 8.
Generally messed up score RC.
Had a short heavy shower and 3 deg drop, followed by increase in gusts from 30 to 45. At this point I was on the E edge of the map in open countryside, heading directly into the westerley wind.
Then fell off heavily going over a drop kerb onto a steeply sloping away pavement. Felt OK, but put back out even more and R wrist is not great.
Finally organisers decided to time me out. Fair cop, and beyond caring! (V light headed after the rain).
Rode 99%, and 2 to 3 sections that I doubted I could. Definitely helps being in a "race".
Need to have skull cap next time when it's cold. Bike needs sorting out a few days in advance rather than the night before.
Running (Dog run) 4:00 
Cycling 36:00  9.3 mi (3:52 / mi) +150m 3:41 / mi
Mini midweek ride in the squally wind from work. Couldn't get any rhythm going.
