This race is not a gazetted event, which means it is mainly a practice event in my own view. However, as I was too familiar with this field, although I did generally well, I still made some mistakes.
The first mistake I made was at point 2, where I ran too fast onto the field directly to the opposite site without looking carefully at the stairs in the presence of people practising kung-fu.
Then to point 11, I also ran too fast overestimating the distance between controls, and stopped when I saw something inappropriate.
The circle on the west of point 12 was blocked, so I had to avoid it when going 11-12 and 18-19.
In leg 21-22, I wrongly reduced my speed on an earlier junction when running down the slope, unnecessarily reducing the speed.
For leg 24-25, I might have taken a bad route choice by going upstairs after crossing the tunnel, unnecessarily reducing the speed where I could accelerate till the end of slope and keep the momentum under the canopy.
Although all the above are minor mistakes, in sprint “every second counts”, and a few minor mistakes already accumulate to difference between the first and the middle of the field.
Overall I got the 4th place in class M21 among 11 starting competitors, which is in my expected range. More information can be found in the links below:
