TrailBadger Dominates World MTBO Championships

Trailbadger at the NI MTBO Championships

The 2008 World MTB Orienteering Championships were held at Craigavon Lakes on Saturday 31 May, in glorious sunshine and surroundings befitting of the event.
Run expertly by Lagan Valley Orienteers, there seems to have been a problem getting the event promoted any further than LVO and another 8 people, which is a shame, as it was tremendous fun.
Paul McArthur, clad in his Badger pelt, stormed to victory leaving the rest of us for dead, dominating proceedings to take the crown from last year's winner Jonny Gallier, who finished in second place. Full results here.
Tango & Cash amazingly finished within a second of each other, proving what a well-matched team they are, Cash's navigating proving to be the deciding factor on the day, heheheeeeee.
Team had 4 representatives on the day, L-R: Rick, Ryan, Davy, Paul
A superb event - would be great to have lots more of these.

Well done, pity there wasn't more in the event alright. I didn't even know it was on.
