The basic concepts behind Mountain Bike Orienteering (MTBO) course design, for the most part, is focused on providing multiple route choices, hosting events at venues with challenging and diverse terrain, and building in navigational complexity.
The 2011 Orienteering USA Annual Convention hosted what may be the first official Mountain Bike Orienteering demonstration model event in convention history.
Could Orienteering USA also obtain the opportunity to host the World Mountain Bike Orienteering Championship (WMOC) alongside the WOC in 2018? Maybe!
MTB Orienteering more like a MOUNTAIN BIKE race that just so happens to have Orienteering! It is a subtle yet important difference that will drastically impact your race turnout.
