Mistake of the week!

Even more tired today, did not find a good route up the first half of the second leg, then OK to 3 & 4.

To #5 my old friend Gunnar Halden won the split by going straight and hitting the narrow white corridor just to the right of the line.

My route to #7 was intentionally slower than taking the big path but I wanted some variation.

Hesitated inside the green to #8 due to marginal/unmapped cliffs but kept on and hit it.

#9 was the mistake of the week/month, the first path I hit was extremely well-used (probably due to MTB'er) so I just assumed that I had already hit the ski track. I did not check the direction, just noted the slight right-hand bend as expected and ran on for far too long until I finally had to admit that I was in the wrong area and had to climb that slash-filled hillside once more. Lost 3 min here.

OK to the last control, then I managed to beat Pål Therkelsen (a friend since we were both young boys in Porsgrunn O-lag back in the end of the sixties) by enough (half a minute?) on the run-in to win the race by 2 seconds. :-)
