IOC Relay 3rd Leg
Was excited to go back to the map where I got my first M21E gold.
Kev and Roar put me out 3 mins behind Marcus, I was afraid it was a bit much but I went out very hard. Having watched a lot of faffing occurring on the earlier legs I made sure to get 1 really cleanly. I could see Marcus going to 2 but he was going over the top of the hill when I was just leaving 1. Destroyed myself up the hill but I was determined not to give away any more races and kept it controlled coming down the other side.
I got the same flow as I had in the middle going then, and was getting stuff really nicely and I felt really good running. Was nice and controlled when I had to be and running fast when I could. Coming down from 10 I though I saw a shiny head and a CorkO top. I figured he was on a different gaffel but he looked a bit lost. Went a bit fast to 11 and lost track. I saw that it was definitely Marcus and he went into it. I wasn't sure and I spotted another control to the right and went to that before figuring it out. I though that was about 20 secs but looking at the GPS it was more like 40.
Flaked it down the track to 12 but no sign of him. Caught sight again going to 14 but he was too far ahead. I gained some time but he he took time back again going up the hill to the second last, I had nothing left. Ended up 40 secs down overall.
Another fecking silver.
Pleased with the run though really, I kept control much better and that flow was really nice.
