'The Environs of the Old Pelaw Main Colliery' (catchy). Felt fine after this morning warming up so was able to get straight into it. The area was cool - ok, lots of rubbish and burnt out cars, but loads of little fiddly details going on and really well-mapped vegetation. It all felt quite familiar to me, reminding me of areas in England like Wombwell near Sheffield. Nice and smooth through the first 9 short legs (banana-ed a bit on #2 and #7). Took the safe route to #10 which lost time but I'd do it again given half the chance. #11 was a real game-changer - I dropped 30secs through hesitations, although was never far off line and high-fived myself when I found it. Picked the pace up on the long leg, but lost time on #14 expecting it to be the spectator control (Grant was actually ahead of me here, but did go to the spectator control and mp-ed). Going well til #19 where I ran across the ride without seeing it and did more of a boomerang than a banana but somehow only lost 20secs. Got it back together again for the rest of the course, but got it really wrong on the last control - wrong route, then punched the wrong last control before realising dropping about 25secs. So, a slightly scrappy run, but mistakes probably only totalled about 2mins, which was ok for this but potentially punishable - good enough for the win again fortunately. Very fun course.
