Tosohatchee Bike Hammerfest ELITE 3 Hour and SPORT 2 Hour
« on: October 20, 2008, 06:48:03 PM »
This should be a fun event.  I did one similar to this last year.  The riding will not be technical at all but I still think these events are fun.

Looks interesting.  How much orienteering is generally used for these bike only adventure races?

The last one we did the navigation was easy.  We commented to the organizer that the nav needed to be a little harder to make it more enjoyable, hopefully he listened.

How does that work?  Do the 3 of you just ride around to the checkpoints together?

That pretty much sums it up.  Each "team" get 1 map, so there will only theoretically be 1 navigator.

This sucks!!  I've already got crap lined up to do that day!  A meeting for work and then I've got to help a friend move later that day.  That would've been a lot of fun.  I'll be stuck in suckville all day while your riding around in the woods!  >:( >:(

That's why I do them, for the nav practice.  It also gives me an opportunity to check out other parks in FL that I may not have gone to otherwise.

Ya, I may see you there. If I race solo and you race team are we in different classes thus not competing against each other?

I think this event will be a little less formal.  They will post the results most likely as in class and the overall.  So you could be 1st in class and 4th overall (for example).  Course will be the same for everyone.  I am going to see the event organizer this Saturday at the Superhero AR.  I will get more info from him then on how he plans to run this race.
