MTBO race (BOSS4) 1:15:20  9.0 km (8:22 / km)
BOSS4 at Wakefield (The Farm)
Really ordinary ride in a great little area.
Started badly due to my familiarity with the area. Looked at a track and somehow decided it was the one adjacent to the start. Rode off onto a minor track. It was faint but orgniser and setter AH had said that some were fairly indistinct on the ground.
Eventually it disappeared and I figured out where I actually was so rode back to the assembly area alread two and a half minutes lost.
Had some other monior error s but rode really slowly. Felt that was as fast as I could go.
Saw a red belly black on the track in front and had to stop suddenly as to not run over it. He was quite large but left in a hurry.
My route choice wasn't great and again I decided to push out my time and consequently lost 2 penalty points. Fairly bad placing overall.
Thanks to Andrew and Nicole especially since they had a lot of scrambling to do due to the sudden appearance of mine subsidence cracks in a central part of the map.
Thanks also to the landholder for helping clear the tracks. Brilliant.
Must do better at Boss5 (and tighten my map board.
