UK based kiwi Mountain Bike Orienteering competitors (MTBOers), Rachel and Liam Drew, have had some outstanding results at the World Masters MTBO Champs 2021 just held in Abrantes, Portugal.

Rachel achieved a clean sweep in the W45 class, taking out 1st place across the Long, Middle, Sprint and Mass start events. This also gave Rachel the win in the World MTBO Masters series which takes results from across several championship events (all European based this year).

Liam (M45) achieved a 6th in the mass start and 4th in the middle distance event, but this was enough to give him the title in the World MTBO Masters series as well.

This is an outstanding result and Rachel is one of the few Kiwi athletes to achieve a clean sweep across all races at a world masters championships, in any discipline.
