MTBO Greenmount

on

Sunday September 7, 9:00am - 1:00pm

This weekend sees the last regular mountain bike orienteering event of the season before the National Series events in Margaret River in October, so it's your last chance to practice before then. Sunday's event is located at the Goat Farm (Greenmount) off Greenmount Rise so very close to the city. Come along and enjoy the intricate track network that was first used to host to the 2006 National Sprint Championships. The map has been significantly updated over the past month and the area has been kept in good condition, with the downhill mountain bikers hosting an event just last weekend.

Registration is available on the day from 9am with three courses on offer of varying lengths and climb.  For full details and directions, see Eventor.
