The third round of the Wellington MTBO Series is coming up on Mount Victoria this Sunday, 27 May. It's not a big area, and the winning time's predicted to be between 1 hr and 1.5 hr for the long course. Shorter for the other grades.
It'll be a fixed order event, which is great for newbies - you don't need to work too much out, you just need to ride from one control to the next and clip your card at each one. If you know Mt Vic, it shouldn't be too hard at all.
Magnus Bengtsson and Simon Kennett are the organisers, and they have tried to design a really enjoyable course - it certainly won't be full of killer climbs, but they can't say anything more than that without giving the game away.
