Average HR: 158
Maximum HR: 180
2h 27min 15s and only 3min mistakes (+ 5 min technical probs), ouch!
Preparations for the french championchip next weekend: *very* long and *very* hilly.
The course was announced to be 15 km one man relay, but that was all very wrong: the GPS logged 29 km +1000m ! (and no one man realy)
No major mistakes, 1 min 5-6 went south of 12th instead of east of.

The course setting was ok but far too long.
Difficult to find (hidden controls) 6 th, 9th, 12th and 13. Especially 13th one had to pass a gate signed "No trespass- private".
8th control, not a fantastic idea to put it at the bottom end of the trail.
6-7 difficult but interesting
to 9th control interesting route choice!

Technical problems: the map holder fell into pieces at the 11th control, rode 11-12-13 with one hand. I lost 5 min downhill . have to get a new mapholder for CF
