Event Report: MTBO Series Event 1 Thornlie - Huntingdale

Wilkinson Homestead Museum, Gosnellsthornlie mtbo 2020

Sunday 25th March 2020

The weekend's mountain bike orienteering event attracted around 30 riders, including a handful of first timers, to explore the streets and paths abounding the Canning and Southern Rivers.  The 2 hr score course, which thankfully remained rain free, saw riders utilising all route choice options (through creative course setting), winding their way along both sides of the rivers utilising paved paths, narrow dirt tracks and open areas.  There were four riders who collected maximum points within the 2 hrs.

The map covered parts of seven different suburbs, including Langford, Thornlie, Beckenham, Kenwick, Maddington, Huntingdale and Gosnells so there were numerous boundary crossings involved!

Thanks to all for coming and to Jack & Sue Dowling, Adam Binks, Hadrien Devillepoix, Ken & Carol Brownlie, Penny & Phil Dufty and Rob & Lois West for control collecting; to Ellie Sansom for computer wrangling; and to Ricky for the maps and courses.
