Welcome to the first(?) GVOC mountain bike specific orienteering event! I am happy that GVOC has been very supportive of trying new events and I'm excited to share it with you all!


  • Score-O, collect as many points as possible!
    • Each control is worth X0 points based on the first digit of the control. (Control 32 would be worth 30 points, etc)
  • 1 or 2 hour time limit, you choose.
    • Lose 10 points per minute over the time limit. Plan wisely!


  • Please register on this website so we know how many maps to print.


  • Control locations will be on legal mountain bike trails
    • All trails with controls will be maximum blue square rating
    • Difficult trails (black diamond) will also be marked to ensure you don't accidentally ride something beyond your skill level.
    • Trails with bikes prohibited will be marked on the map. Please don't ride these trails.
  • Controls will be marked with orange pinflags
    • Paper maps provided and/or you can use MapRun6
    • Each pinflag has a word on it. Note the word and control number!

Start/Finish Location

  • Start and finish will be at Blueridge Park. We will be at the the north corner near the baseball diamond.

Post Race

  • Bring your park beverages!

I'm looking forward to hearing all feedback from this event and want to make future MTBO events better. So please feel free to share your thoughts.

Have fun!
