- New MTB race format – OrientBeering
In addition to the “official” XC, Downhill and Trials parts of the Weekender competing we’re going to be doing some additional “just for fun” optional mini-events to keep people entertained during the latter stages of Saturday.
The first of these mini-events will be the Polaris OrientBeering Challenge. Basically, it will involve navigating your way from Lee Quarry over to the not-that-far-away Cragg Quarry.
Once you’ve found Cragg Quarry you’ll have to locate a orienteering punch, punch some holes into your raceplate with it, return to Lee Quarry alive and go to the Polaris stand to collect your delicious liquid prize.
Orienteering with beer. What can go wrong? 🙂Posted 6 years agocharlie the bikemongerSubscriber
I invented that around 10 years ago:
Checkpints with beers: crap lager in the valleys and quality ale on the hills.
Extra points for bleeding and getting lost
Points deducted per cog
We had two world championships before deciding it was too dangerous to share with most folk.
Good luck guysPosted 6 years ago

We ran a couple in Oz. Loads of blood, people doing jumps whose wheels had never left the ground before etc.
Came to the conclusion it was a brilliant way to train able-bodied people for the Paralympics.
If anyone wants the orientbeering website, I’m happy to transfer it. 🙂Posted 6 years ago
