There were three exciting Mountain Bike Orienteering events at the Scottish 6 Days.
MTBO is an Orienteering sport and uses a specially surveyed detailed map (usually 1:10,000) with slightly different symbols to a Foot O map. There is less emphasis on detail in the forest and there is a special grading of path "rideability" or speed of travel (see below). Riding is not very technica
