Pedal Power at Awaba DuO

Sunday November 4 marked the first event in this season's DuO Adventure Series, a foot and mountain biking orienteering series. Not only is the series giving foot orienteers a break in to the world of MTBO, the series is attracting adventure racers to orienteering and providing a great opportunity for racers to sharpen their navigational skills. While the weather was a little warm, it was thankfully dry and the day attracted almost 100 competitors; an amazing attendance and evidence that the format is popular!

Bennelong Northside made a respectable showing and had some decent results!
