How does the event work? Riders have up to 75 minutes to visit as many controls on the supplied colour map as you want. You choose which ones to visit and which way to get there and back. Each control is worth 20 points. 10 points penalty per minute for those longer than 75 minutes. Simple as that.
Timing: At registration riders are provided with a small electronic tag to record each control they visit. Full results and scores are then immediately shown as riders finish their course.

Refreshments: Sausages, cheese toasties and drinks will be available with funds going to assist the Victorian members of the Aussie MTBO team. So please hang around after your ride and grab something to eat and drink and compare your course with other riders.
