3 Hour Score Event 14 May 2016
Course by Kay Haarsma, Organiser Gerry Velaitis
A fine day attracted a number of enter-on-day riders, in addition to pre-entries, to sample the delights of Belair park trails
and the hills of suburban Blackwood.
To simplify the event, all controls were worth 10 points
each, which also helped focus attention on time and efficiency.
Andrew Slattery took
top placing with 5 minutes to spare, and collected all but 2 controls. Andrew was still speculating afterwards
whether he might have been able to collect one of the remaining 2, but, at the time, erred on the side of caution. Such is the nature of this event.!
Kudos to Simon and Kristi for taking very their two junior MTBO-ers in
tow to some of the steeper track networks in Belair.
