Call for 2018 Mountain Bike Orienteering (MTBO) Team Members

If you've been thinking at all about signing up for the US MTBO team but haven't had the time or made it happen -- now is your chance! Signing up means an opportunity to race against the world's best this August in Waldviertel, Austria from August 5-13. We are looking for athletes to compete in the Women's Elite, Men's Elite, and Juniors category as well!

Practice your skills in a multi-day training camp the week before competition starts, then participate in up to five events, ranging from Sprint, Middle, Long, Team Relay, and the newest discipline as of 2017, Mass Start.

Are you:

  • An avid intermediate to advanced mountain biker?
  • An avid Foot-O or Ski-O competitor?
  • An adventure racer with experience navigating on bike?
  • Excited about the opportunity to compete internationally and see MTBO at its finest?

Then you should really think about applying. The international MTBO community is small and friendly, and the athletes are very willing to teach new participants about the sport of MTBO.

For more information about the competition, please go to wmtboc2018.at/wmtboc2018/

Please apply by Sunday, June 3; send email to Greg Lennon at greg_lennon [at] orienteeringusa.org
