1 - Hands quite cold at the start. Took the safe route on the trail up the big climb. Lungs a bit cold as well. Really surprised to have been only 3s down on Scott on this first leg.
2-Got to where I thought the control was but couldn't see it. Realised fairly quickly that it was over the next hill. (10s lost)
3-In off the small trail. Fine
4-Hesitated a bit when I got close. Veg boundary seemed a bit off, but could see the green patch.
5-Hesitated as I got close. Should have just been confident.
6-Quite slow through the green cut area. Couldn't see the boulder at first.
7-Saw the cluster of boulders, but didnt look at the description (only on the map) to see where the flag was exactly. Checked the north side of the right boulder but didnt see it and searched around for a bit before going back and finding it on the west side. (50s lost)
8-Out to the small trail and planned to cut north to the indistinct trail to the road. The vegetation was totally off though and couldnt make sense of anything. Headed west to where the runnability looked better but eneded up in the rough cut areas. (45s lost)
9-Wasn't paying attention going into the control and ended up too high. (1min)
11-Ok, but I climbed too high after the road.
14-Good, but a bit thrown off by some unmapped details going into the control.
15-Good. Caught back up with a pack of 5 or 6 guys
17-Followed the pack but lost track a bit of where we were once across the second road. Not so sure about the route. Maybe south and around was better?
18-Some of the guys started going too far north. Broke off with a guy from Skogsfalken here and spiked it.
20-The skogsfalken guy had a different fork, and he pulled me a bit off my line. Had my head up looking for the shape but didn't see it. Ended up way north up on the other hill. Most frustrated with this mistake. Lost two places here and was hoping for a good sprint finish with the other guy. (1:30)
Overall an ok race, but too many small mistakes. The start and the last third were pretty good. Would have been nice to have been under 70.
