Rome Orienteering – Day 3

Finally after 2 days in Rome’s outlying parkland came the main reason for the trip, an urban orienteering race in and around the old city of Rome. The finish start and assembly area were all adjacent to the Colosseum, a beautiful although slightly bizarre setting teaming with tourists on a Sunday morning.

We had . . . → Read More: Rome Orienteering – Day 3

Rome Orienteering – Day 2

Day 2 was in another large park in Rome – this time Villa Pamphilj , the weather a little warmer and this time slightly longer courses, planned as a middle distance race. As we had split start times, whilst Holly was out I enjoyed a coffee, a pastry and a dose of autumn sun . . . → Read More: Rome Orienteering – Day 2

Rome 2017 – Day 1 – Sprint

We arrived in Rome on the train from Naples and it was a simple journey on the Metro up to Caffarella, a parkland. After handing over a Doctors Certificate (as is normal in France and Italy) buying a T Shirt and saying hello to a few people (Brits and a few Danes) We headed . . . → Read More: Rome 2017 – Day 1 – Sprint

World Games 2017 Sprint – Wroclaw

Randomly we found ourselves in Wroclaw for a couple of days at the same time as the World Games – completely unplanned! The World Games is full of sports that don’t quite have the worldwide oomph to get on the Olympic Stage! On the Monday night we tried to get tickets to the men’s . . . → Read More: World Games 2017 Sprint – Wroclaw

Ride Staffs Sportive and Cycling Festival 2017

The event was based out of Chillington Hall, a location . . . → Read More: Ride Staffs Sportive and Cycling Festival 2017

Poland Cup – MTBO World Masters Series – Long

The long race was to the north of the previous 2 days, characterised by very steep sided  valleys and spurs and a complete mix of track ride-ability from flat out to a shoulder carry. After my middle epic of over 90 minutes I was prepared for a long one out in the hot sun . . . → Read More: Poland Cup – MTBO World Masters Series – Long

Polish Masters Sprint Championships 2017

A hot afternoon brought us back to the same start as the middle earlier in the day. We watched as most starters turned right up the 60 metre climb and wondered how ‘sprinty’ the event was going to be. Apparently the organisers bounced in and out of permissions to use the touristy parks which . . . → Read More: Polish Masters Sprint Championships 2017
