It’s Not About Having Time, It’s About Making Time
Your watch is there to help you avoid time penalties. Don’t forget to start it and have a plan to use it! A good cross country watch will help you, a bad one will hinder you. Be sure you understand how to use your XC watch – both the actual functionality of the watch and how to calculate your optimum time. Knowing the rules of eventing is also useful – be sure you don’t circle before the final flags is a good hint.
