Mt Billy SE

This area was mapped some years ago and hence, the vegetation (both yellow and green) should be interpreted accordingly. The terrain varies from open wandoo to scrappy and scratchy thicker vegetation. Full body cover, especially leg protection is highly recommended. Some recent changes to motorbike tracks have been mapped, but there may still be some unmapped tracks – especially west of Ball Rd, which only impacts H1 competitors.

Water will be supplied on courses as per OA rules. One water drop is located near the finish and this is primarily for H1 competitors. It is marked on all maps with the water cup symbol. The other water drops will be located at controls – 1 water drop for each Hard course and the Moderate course. You are encouraged to bring your own water as well.
