Something I love about the sport is that in the end, the only one you are competing against is yourself. The only thing I focus is to get a better performance than the previous trial and if that ends being better or worst than someone elsethat is secondary.
I need to... when I participated on the promotional categories then I had to compete against others but since I upgraded to IPO A and 1 I am by myself on most trials so to have a 1st place is kind of pointless, LOL. When I get to IPO 3 then I'll have 2 other people to compete against, who happen to be from my pseudo club
. It's what you get living in the tail of a small country with even smaller dog culture.
