In this message i will talk about the race that i've participated in 15 October.
I Know ..... a long time ago
I promise that by the end of this week I'll update the blog.
This race took place in Évora, more precisely in S. Bartolomeu of Outeiro.
I've been there before 3 times but in this race the map is new.
Is a map with good progression and a lot of rock details and dense vegetation near them and this is what makes this map so interesting.
In the morning my course had 4.6 km and 145 m climb and I do missing point - MP ( on 16º point )
2 - Hesitation on the point's area - '25
5 - Little Hesitation on the point´s área - '15
6 - I run in the best option but in the end of the leg I have problems to find the point - 2'20
9 - I pass close to the point and I don´t see it and lost lot of time to find it - 4'10
10 - Huge Hesitation on the point area - 1'05
11 - A little deviation on the final of the leg that drove me to another rocky outcrop - 1'30
13 - Big deviation with a wrong azimute - '50
16 - I miss this point ( I pass so close.... with the quickroute file you can see this )
18 - I wasn't look in the point's right place - '20
In total I lost 10 minutes and 55 seconds , a lot of time for a race like that.
If I don´t have done the MP I stay 10 minutes behind the first athlete.
My opponents are very strong now.
I have to train harder to have nice results.
