I wondered if any of your members would be interested in a Mountain Bike Orienteering Competition

The races are for 2 or 3 hour and I attach a notice of event if you could Help to promote it
Mountain Bike Orienteering
Mountain bike orienteering is an endurance sport attracting both orienteering and mountain bike enthusiasts.
The Sailsbury Mountain Bike Orienteering Score Event is based on an Ordnance Survey Map, 1:25,000. A number of controls with various point values are distributed across the map area & competitors aim to visit as many as possible within the allocated time, either 2 or 3 hours. Each rider accumulates a total score dependant on how many and which particular controls are visited. There is no set order for visiting the controls & riders have to decide the most efficient way in which to use their time and energy. The rider with the highest points total after any time penalty deductions is the winner.
The event start and finish is Summerlands Caravan park, College farm, Combe Bissett, Sailsbury SP5 4LP
