The Autumn street (Lamp-O) penultimate event was held from the Empress on Wednesday evening. The conditions were good for mid November, and Linda introduced a new twist of post boxes scoring double points that increased the route choice conundrum – the top 6 placed competitors had visited all 6 of them.
The temptation to gather some controls around Starbeck – and misjudging the time to get back up the hill to the finish, led to me being 50sec late back. Caitlin missed the 45minute cut-off by just 2 seconds, but fortunately didn’t impact on her well earned 3rd place.
Try a trickier night challenge at Hookstone this Saturday.
