Sign up for Mountainbike-O 2016 – learn more about this event, and let us know you’re coming! This race has no course arrows or other markings. Competitors read a map to find checkpoints. The course is designed so that there are usually a number of route choices to each checkpoint. The map gives clues that will help make good route choices. An explanation of the colors and symbols on the sample map are given at the bottom of this page. Electronic timing will be used at this event! You will receive a printout of your split time for each checkpoint. Starts will be at one minute intervals. You will have the choice of an easier 3 mile race or a rugged 5+ miler.
