The carnival website can be found at

There will be live results so those wishing to follow our fellow club member exploits should check out the website. For those unsure of what MTBO is - it stand for Mountain Bike Orienteering. Our own BOSS series is an MTBO event though it utilises a scatter course like our street rather than a line course (like our bush series) which is more common to MTBO events. For those who may have got a new mountain bike for christmas (or interested in giving it a go) - the 12th Jan is the next BOSS event - check upcoming events for more details
