WA Mountain Bike Orienteering Champs


July 11-12th

To all riders or those wishing to try a new activity, please note that entries to the State MTBO Championships (middle and long distance) to be held at the newly updated Turner Hill map on the weekend of July 11-12, are now open. To qualify for championship status, you must pre-enter through Eventor prior to the closing date (Sunday, July 5).  EOD entries will be accepted on any course but not in championship age classes. In addition with pre-entry you are guaranteed a map. Note that you can ride in whatever age class you qualify for, so you are not restricted to your age group, if you want to compete against younger guns! 

Preliminary information on the events can be found in the June edition of O Express, with final course details to be published in July.  Turner Hill has not been used for orienteering in about four years so it's practically a brand new map with lots of new (and old) places to explore, loads of exciting single track and fast fire roads to traverse! Overnight camping is also available at the nearby Marrinup campsite or alternatively stay in Dwellingup for the evening and enjoy a meal with fellow riders.
