Welcome to British MBO
There are two types of BMBO Mountain Bike Orienteering events. The most common is known as MBO Score. The second format is MTBO which is the international event format. Both can provide a great deal of excitement and bike riding enjoyment for participants.
MBO Score events require riders, either solo or pairs to visit as many of the available control points on a map within the allowed time. Each rider accumulates a total score dependant on how many and which particular controls they visit. There is no set order for visiting the controls & riders have to decide the most efficient route on which to use their time and energy. The rider with the highest points total is the winner. As route choice, level of difficulty and duration of riding are all decisions for the rider, these events really can give anyone a buzz, whatever their ability level.
MTBO events use orienteering style maps and are usually held within areas containing a good network of tracks and paths, providing a variety of route choices. The aim of these events is to ride between the controls in a particular sequence within the shortest amount of time.
