Flying Pig Middle Blue - mostly very fast woods and steep climbs, although they didn't seem so steep compared to Yellowwood. Of course, in a middle it was harder to feel good about walking up hills when they got steep enough that that was the most efficient thing to do. Back to a fairly satisfying second,just ahead of Mattias and not quite a minute back of Eric. AP splits analysis says I was quite clean but that's partly due to inadequate sensitivity - I lost 20 seconds or more to the fastest on five legs out of 17. Course wasn't particularly technically difficult but was very physical so as in the sprint, I'm pleased to have managed to keep my effort level high throughout without blowing up anywhere. It'll be harder to make that happen in more technical races to come this spring.
