The 2022 ACT MTBO Championships was successfully held over two days in Canberra!
More than 60 riders from five states very much enjoyed the challenging courses and three diverse areas (including two new maps) – hilly and challenging trails of Jerrabomberra, exciting and tricky open terrain at Sutton Road Driver Training Centre, and a great mix of dry fire roads and fantastic (but very muddy) single tracks of Sparrow Hill.
In spite of expectations of severe rain effects, areas managed to dry up a bit to allow for enjoyable riding and navigation. The Championships competed MTBO National series events season for 2022.
