0830 - Mohales Gate. 1:15'000. I had a good start on the M21A course, almost catching Alex (9 mins ahead) at #3 where the control was suspect. Then ran well with only 1 route choice error before messing up #7. Found myself in a loose bunch with Hardy, Alex and Garry, with myself and Garry pulling away in the middle part of the course. Started feeling very tired after #14 and lost considerable speed, Garry moving off onto the horizon. We overused 1 area, which saw me getting a bit bored, but otherwise okay course. Managed to win (4th year in a row) by 10 minutes of Jeremy, Alex 3rd, Paul 4th and Garry 5th. Made about 4 minutes of mistakes, but lost at least 5 mins due to tiredness in the 2nd half of the course.
