Districts Champs at Sprint. Quite debatable how serious we were supposed to take this race, but i was 100% commited on doing well on this one. I was very tired, but have been worse. Dug out my cross country spikes, and psyched myself up even more when looking at the rainy weather and knowing it was mostly running on grass that would put an advantage on 9mm spikes.
Not too much to say on this one. Felt the map was really great, had great grip, and didnt do any mistakes. I may have lost some on a few route choices, but i dont know if i would have done anything different. Will post map soon, and have the map speak for itself. Nice area for sure :D
Managed to get a DSQ on one control (showing a wrong punched code), but was 100% sure i had been there, and especially how OCD I am on checking codes, it didnt really make sense. Gave my backup sheet, and headed to the control site on the warmdown to check if i had stampled on the wrong control, but i didnt find any controls nearby, and my GPS shows i had been on the location within 5 meters. Results shows me now on 6th, so this is the first time ive experienced a faulty on emit. Ive heard emit shutting off, but not actually registering a wrong code. Thats real shitty.
Winner: Mattias karlsson 15:40
29 seconds behind Jostein Nørbech means a job well done.
