Bray Head hill race - 4th (unofficially)
Seem to have lost my number, so all my races are unofficial until that's resolved.
Started quick enough so as not to get blocked in. Moved alright up to the summit, but losing ground on Conor & James. Hit the cross about 40sec behind Conor, initially thought it was more like a 50sec - 1min.
Rallied on and started passing people along the trail beetween the two hills.
Caught James just after the second summit, up to 5th.
Moving well on the way back, felt I was gaining on Conor & Iosac, definitely gaining on 4th, and caught him leading back up the cross.
At the cross looks like I was maybe 25sec behind Conor again, so had gained a little but not loads.
took a wrong turn, as did most because it wasn't marked, came out onto the trail and Mikey Fry had caught back a lot because of that, and he whipped out just in front of me.
Passed him in the technical descent, and didn't have to worry on the road.
Probably slightly slower on the final descent than Conor.
Good race, happy enough with my run, and thoroughly enjoyable when you get weather like we did.
Still work to do on the climbs.
