2015 World Cup - Round 2 - Middle Race
My first race back in Swedish forest in nearly thirteen years. Quite a different start to the day compared to yesterday, with more than a 4 hour wait in quarantine. As for the race, first control was taken cautiously but then I came unstuck on the second and lost 4min. 3,4 and 5 weren't as bad but were still unclean and I lost more time. My route choice to six wasn't great but I managed to keep better map contact. This continued from 7 through 12, better contact but still small errors. I was caught by Leon at this point and stayed with him thought to 19, happy that I could actually move through forest at a decent pace. And then my race ended. Coming down the hill from 19 I rolled my ankle and could all but manage a hobble back to the finish.
