Snow Hills, Long Distance M60, 3rd. Well the streak had to end, but how! Completely outclassed in tough spur gully. Basically got the route choice wrong on the long legs and then made mistakes on the last two controls plus the finish. Need to find 20 minutes (get 50% quicker) to be competitive. I'm not sure that is possible -hopefully the splits analysis/routegadget will help.
EDIT: It is possible, just. Major time losses - on the way to 1 lost my line and overcorrected through not-very-runnable bush. Then ran too long on the path (-5). Next long leg to 4 chose a bad route choice (-3) and didn't carry it out very well (-1) and fumbled at the circle, stopped one gully too early (-4). Then, to 5, pushed too hard and ignored compass (-3). That's 38 minutes, so it is possible. To actually do the time is very impressive though.
