Northern Championships, Bigland.
My first ever start in Elite - more as an exercise, long distance training to get the time on my feet and practice, practice, practice. Never expected to be in any kind of a race with the young guys so even though technically it was a race, I can't classify this as such from my perspective.
The objective was to complete the course which I have done, despite the rain and in some parts the gale force winds. Real shame about that, I intended to take the GoPro initially to capture the scenery but gave up as the rain started to come down.
Did not make nearly as many mistakes as the day before, but wasn't really pushing hard at any point either. Even the majority of the mistakes came towards the end in the last 45 minutes when I became rmore and more tired.
