I was aware that I didn't want to set off too quickly, but looking at my splits to the top of the hill I suffered on the last 2 ascents, being more than a minute slower than my the first uphill. However I managed to gain time and ground on the fast tracky descents. Unfortunately my poor uphills meant I couldn't quite dip under the hour mark, finishing in 323nd (of 45) in 60.21, the race being won by James McMullan in 48:40 - so I was about 1min/km down on the frontrunners. The results from all races are here.
