The rush to get to the competition seemed to have got to me as i just couldn`t concentrate on the course and did 3 big mistakes that cost me a lot of time.
For the second day of competition we went to the same village as the One Man Relay. Only this time we had a forest sprint. My running speed was good and even though I did only a small mistake in the second control I had a good morale until i hurt my ankle a bit. From that point I just couldn`t concentrate on the map and I did 2 big mistakes. My result could have been by far a lot better.
P.S. Next time I will listen to Tamas and I will wear the Active Ankle no matter what!
It`s now a tradition that every Velikden Cup has a banquet. This year it was nice, with good food and nice music (special thanks to Ursli Jordi for the great song).
After the first two bad days I wanted to do a good race in the middle distance, and so I did, with only some small mistakes and 2 somehow bad route choices. This time my map reading was good but my running speed was not. The stage was won by Kiril Nikolov with a fabulous time!

For the last day, as usual in Velikden Cup, we had the Long Distance (WRE) - the map was good and the terrain was nice (even though on some downhill parts I had to move very slow because of my ankle). I did a clean and steady race, with only a bad route choice to the 8th control (lost 2 min) and some small errors. Probably I could have pushed harder with my running but I am satisfied with the result.
