Schoepfl Mountain Race
First competitive run over the hills (2016) so it was, to coin a horse racing term, a 'pipe opener'.
New course which I considered an improvement on the old one took in less tarmac and more wilderness. With red and white spots on stones and direction arrows or race marshalls where required navigation was not problem.
Conditions on the hill were cool, misty and muddy.
I tracked my old rival Günther Nolz up the final ascent and finished a little under half a minute behind him.
