Race Evaluation

Newcastle NOY 1 - Fairley Dams: Hard Medium


1. P D P R 2 +00:10Not sure, but I think straight would have been better. Did gain about 10 seconds on Cath cutting the corner through the bush. Got confused at the track junction.
2. P D P R 2 +00:10Climbed too high from 1 and had to run an extra 50m on the track to the bend.
3. P D P R 4 +00:30Ran a needless 100m extra at the end of the leg.
4. P P R 4 Lucky, but had rightly picked it was below the main line of rocks. Saw Cath standing for a long time above it, with her back to the control.
5. P D P R 3 +00:20Couldn't read the detail and veered more off line when I thought I saw Jenny punching.
6. P D P R 2 A slog. Kept high.
7. P D P R 4 +00:30Firstly - chose the wrong route (straight). Contouring was quicker. Then failed to get the right height off the track and stupidly followed ?Quirkey? to the wrong boulders.
8. P D P R 2 Just ran down the line of rocks till the first likely boulder clump
9. P D P R 2 Might have been quicker to keep above the rocky ground?
10. P D P R 2 Kept a good line with the compass.
11. P D P R 2 +00:30Thought that straight through the green would be quicker, but failed to keep up a good pace. Running around to the right was much quicker (350m at 6mk versus 300m at 8 mk)
12. P D P R 3 Got this one right
13. P D P R 3 And this one
14. P D P R 4 +00:15Had seen Bjorn come out of 13, so rushed at 14 straight down the gully. Got caught in green and had to read the map.
15. P D R +00:05Again chasing Bjorn. Cottoned on when he did a U-turn and came back towards me.
F. P D P R Sprint, caught in green for part.

Total Time Lost - 00:02:30
