Participants liked today's competition - perfect conditions with fun and tricky paths.
Many gathered in the Vrinnevi forest to sign up for the O-Ringen MTBO try outs. For some it is their first MTBO and for others they have been on the bike many times before.
One of the first at the finnish line was Sofia Tunesson from Kolmården.
Have you done this before?
- Yes, I compete in both MTB and orienteering and have tried MTBO before. When I run the orienteering I compete for Skogspojkarna in Söderköping.
How did it go?
- It was difficult at the end and extremely much trails, so a bit hard to keep track of all of them. But otherwise it went well.
What do you think is the difference between orienteering and MTBO?
- When you cycles MTBO you have to be involved all the time because everything goes so fast. Orienteering in the forest, it´s a little slower and you can read on more details. Here you only read on paths and in the forest you also read on stones and other things.
Good work everyone who went around the tricky paths despite the heat!
