Having gotten the OMM out of the way, I’ve been having a dabble at Trailquesting the past couple of weeks. What that? – well, a Trailquest is basically an orienteering score event on a bike – you get a map covered in checkpoints and a time limit to collect as many as possible.
Having never done any before, results have been somewhat erratic: Last weekend I did my first race up at Richmond and somehow managed to win it, beating the current British MBO champion – but this weekend down in the Peak I well and truly crashed and burned (well, came 4th) after a series of schoolboy errors. All good fun though – winter mountain biking has got to be the muddiest sport ever..
