Vic MTBO Series #5 at Woodlands
We enjoyed beautiful weather for the final round of the series held at Woodlands Historic Park near Tullamarine airport. 66 people enjoyed the event with courses set by Keith Wade.
People seemed to really enjoy the riding and while being a reasonably straightforward area, there is added complexity due to the fences and gates that need to be taken into consideration with route choices.
The event was a combined effort from Tuckonie and Bayside Kangaroos, so thanks to both clubs and their organising team.
Apologies to those who had difficulty making the Paypal entry payment. We had an incorrect date in the system which wasn’t spotted until late.
The final series standings can be found here.
Presentations for the Series will be made at the dinner in Beechworth on Saturday 8 November for the Victorian Middle and Long Championships weekend.
