Sat 19 Mar 2005
2-day mountain bike orienteering event. KIMM on bikes.

The event centre was at the school in Brecon
. I rode with Nick Eames. Steve Loughran and Will Wray were also competing. We had a great ride in fine weather. Everything went pretty much to plan. Only two minor mechanical failures - Nick's cleat and my map board.

We finished 18th out of 146 starters in the Senior category, down from 15th after day 1. Steve and Will did well too, finishing 42nd.
