SSS 22 at Cheltenham
Physically & technically demanding course. Enjoyed the challenging climbs & nice bush. A good puzzle which made me think about which controls to omit.
Route: 4-28-8-19-27-6-12-20-3-14-26-22-23-15-7-16-25-30-9-24-21-11-29-17-1. Skipped 2, 5 & 10 & couldn't find 18 - I couldn't read the map detail in the dark under the M2. My other main error was circling NE of 3 losing a minute or so. In hindsight a better plan would've been to skip 3 and go 20-23-14-26-22-15.
Not a clean run but still managed equal first with Richard M (500). Michael B & Greg 490. Results were unusual with 3 veterans in the top 4. Some misplaced controls cost James, Andy & Keelan and others.
