Race Details:

Mountain Bike Map Racing is a "Navigation Sport". More specifically, Mountain Bike Map Racing is a time-based challenge, with 1.5 hour and 3-hour options, where participants try to score as many points as possible within the time allowed, by visiting checkpoints scattered across a vast, wild trail network. Participants decide which checkpoints to visit, and in what order. Typically, a set time is allowed before the start for participants to study the map, and determine their route. Participants ride their bikes and navigate their chosen route using the map and a compass (No GPS allowed except for recording your track). Checkpoints have different point values, so that easy ones yield a lower point value than difficult (far away, or lots of climb) ones. To encourage beginners, course setters typically provide plenty of easy checkpoints near the start and finish location. Scores are electronically recorded which are downloaded upon completion of the course to see where you rank.
