A good race even though I got a bit tired towards the end, on control #9 I was in shared third place but ended up in sixth:

Very good to #1, I intentionally ran along the indistinct paths instead of the obvious road/path route.

Halfway to #2 I made the only real orienteering mistake when I took the wrong path, believing I was one junction further NE. Lost 15+ seconds here but it would have been even better to go straight along the west side of the first marsh.

Lost another 15 s halways to #3 when I failed to spot a path junction underneath the 10-15 cm of snow.

Wrong path towards #4, another 15 s.

Very good routes and execution to #5, 6, 7, 8 & 9, as noted I was nr 3 here.

Some hesitation into #10.

Should have taken the paths around right to #11, and the same to #12.

OK in the butterfly.

Very good to #19 where I caught up to another runner.

Made it too complicated to #20 and lost a few seconds, should have stayed on the main path.

Climbing straight up the cliffs above the last control was almost certainly a mistake, I should have turned around and gone back up the reentrant.
