Race 8: Bloom Wood Evening Race

This was another of the TVOC summer series races – a mass start race of three loops. See my race writeup.

Here’s my mistake towards the end of the second loop, leg 5->6. Green shows where I thought I was going, red shows where I was actually going.

On leaving 5, I made a big parallel error. There were certain things that should have alerted me to the mistake – the fact that the ride went on for much longer than I expected, and an apparently unmarked tower – but they didn’t. I ended needlessly climbing the hill and ended up at control 2, punching it before realising and heading back down. In doing so I dropped out of the lead of my running group, into third.
