7 August 2017: Bronze Medal at the World Masters MBO Champs

While last week a large group of Berkshire Orienteers' members were running through the forests, moors and marshes of Scotland, two members were doing something very different. This year the World Masters Mountain Bike Orienteering Championships were staged in the Orleans area of France and Denise and Eric Harper were part of the British team taking part. Denise had taken third place last year in the W60 Middle Championships but an error this year meant that this was not repeated. However, instead she was able to achieve third place in the Sprint Championship race and so has again come away with a Bronze Medal. Congratulations to Denise! The picture shows her tackling the middle course (before things went wrong!).
