Y.O.T.A is an unofficial mountain bike navigation couples challenge that will take place for the first time in January 2019 across the Negev desert in Israel. Participants in the event will need to plan their route and ride through it, collecting checkpoints along the way. The winning pair will be the one who managed to arrive to the finish line while collecting the highest number of points (some checkpoints will have higher points than others) and within the event time frame.
