Race Evaluation

QOC Fountainhead: Green


1. P D P R 3 +00:45Had a good mental picture, but didn't read the fine print...needed to be on the other side of the erosion ditch.
2. P D P R 4 Decided to stay low, read the big features, and come up the erosion ditch. Opted to use the spur instead when I got there, but easy spike.
3. P D P R 2 +02:00Had a good mental picture, but it didn't match what I was looking at. Thought the small long spur was actually the one to the north that had a small hill at the tip, ended up circling back to the trail junction to be sure of where I was. Then had trouble reading the little spurs into the control. None of the details in this area made sense with what I was expecting.
4. P D P R 2 Straight at it, ticking off big features as I went.
5. P D P R 4 +02:10Had planned to stay high and count tops of reentrants, but got sucked off to the right. Not sure how I relocated, probably realized I was looking at the wrong reentrant.
6. P D P R 3 Straight at it. Saw the dot knoll on my way over the top and knew I had it.
7. P D P R 5 +15:00Got lost in the thick vegetation when I could no longer apply my big picture. Actually saw #8 but didn't realize it was my control. Relocated off of the trail, and then #9. Walked a lot, had real problems visualizing the terrain here.
8. P D P R 3 +00:30Slow in the middle when I stopped to figure out what spur I was looking at.
9. P D P R 4 +00:30It helped that I had been through here before, still having trouble seeing little things on the map as big features in the terrain.
10. P D P R 3 One of my stronger splits, ran the trail and attacked off the clearing
11. P D P R 3 +00:15Stayed by the line, probably faster if I had gone higher as planned.
12. P D P R 3 +01:00Meant to stay low, but then got distracted by #1 on my map.
13. P D P R 3 Big features
14. P D P R 2 Felt like I did one side too many of the fence
15. P D P R 2 Probably a bit faster to pop out through the start
F. P D P R 1 +00:15Didn't care so much...

Total Time Lost - 00:22:25
