A persistent light rain fell for most of the morning, but some riders came home more soaked than others as the Head of the Lake was a final soggy landing point for a number of riders. At the end of the CCI* (referred to at NAJYRC as the CH-J*), 13 of the 44 riders will not be continuing on with the competition, with several finishing the day at the water jump.
