Occassional thoughts about orienteering

MTB Orienteering - None from the U.S. at the WOC?No cyclists from the U.S. are at the Mountain Bike Orienteering World Champs.* When I look at mtb-O maps or read reports from races, I always wonder why the sport hasn't gotten any traction in the U.S. I guess we just don't have the organizers. I don't think USOF has done much to push the sport.
I'm fairly sure the U.S. has more Trail O (aka Pre-O) competitors than MTB-orienteers in any given year.
You can follow the MTB-O champs at the official web page and via Dan Chissick's always interesting blog.
* As far as I know. I haven't heard of any U.S. riders and I didn't see any in the results list for the long qualifying. I didn't see any Canadians either.
