So the makeshift mapholder held up through all the rain and the ADL once again made me feel very sure footed on the trail. Easily taking on drops that I would otherwise have faltered at. The only issue I had was one a created. I lost all brakes with over 1 hour to go. I should have put new pads in on Saturday. This meant that for the last hour I had to run down every hill in my bike shoes and because of that I now have black toe nails and expect to lose them soon.
It is at least 2 years since my last race so I was pleased with the result. We finished 3rd in the Male pairs category although we were very late back and got penalised for that. My navigate was a bit rusty but on the whole we were going in the right direction.
Think I might do one again soon. Link to results below.

Doing my first Adventure Race in 3 years tomorrow on the North Downs. I have a may holder but it is for standard bars so will not fit on the ADL as it has oversize. I had a hunt around the shed on Friday evening but it was going to be a real faff to change things over just for 2-3hrs of riding so this morning I rigged up a basic mount and added the rotating map holder onto it. Hopefully it will be robust enough to last the 2-3hr ride tomorrow. It's going to be a wet one so lets see....
