Today's task was basically the Roldanillo Milk Run, we started over the hills above Roldanillo and then headed north. Turning around a few miles beyond La Union, we then had a choice of staying in the mountains, which were really rough, or heading out to the flats. I think almost everyone went out to the flats and there was lots of lift everywhere.
I played it safe and ventured back into the hills near Zarzal to get lift...I may have gotten up over the valley but I did see people land and I really wanted to make it into goal. With a tailwind, I was able to zip into goal in 1:48, which might be my fastest average speed for the week. Of course everyone else was going quickly too, so it probably wasn't enough for me to podium. But I am very happy to have made goal 5 times in 7 tasks and I never broke airspace. A successful competition and a lot of fun!
Results are HERE I ended up 7th in the Sport Class, and 4th Woman. I was only a couple hundred points behind in both, so close I could taste the podium. To podium I would have had to have 6 tasks in goal and I only had 5...next year!
