good racing pete, bus, ag. but medals are medals so kudos go to Simon and his gold.
XC race for me, shit course, shit weather, shit performance. i knew i was tired going into to it but the team needed me to get round to make sure we win team gold at the end of the series. on the last lap im motoring catching and passing people but then go all bambi and slip, head over tits, wiping out a fellow team mate in the process. i get up, stop swearing after a while and then start the chase again.
after half a mile or so im back on his shoulder and realise we have gone the wrong way. looks like a marshall had left his post to treat a injured runner (fair enough) but a small group of us went the wrong way adding on just under half a mile extra. so we turn back onto the correct course and i come in behind people i passed ages ago. so results are all up in the air as it doesnt sound like we were the only ones to go wrong.
