What is Taste Of Mud?
Taste Of Mud is a series of Muni events with overall standings. We (David, Jogi and me) had the idea of having some kind of a European competition in Muni and in March 2010 we finally founded Taste Of Mud.
Our goal is to support, develop and expand Muni, yet keep the fun site of it.
Riders can collect points/muds on all events, that we list on our website by competing. For one discipline on each event riders get additional points when they are within the first 14 riders.
At the end of the year, the rider with the highest score wins the season.
We never had a big introduction, because we first wanted to try things out and see how everything works out. We now know where we need to improve and would also like to get some feedback from you.
Here is a list of all 8 events we added to the 2010 season. Unfortunately we could only announce some events a few days before they happened because we just started this project in March.

Please help us to find Muni events, that will happen in 2011. When you are planning of organizing an event or hear of an event, that is not listed on our page, it would be great if you could notify us about it.
It doesn’t matter if things are uncertain or if there is no fixed date yet.
Maybe we can help you with organizing.
Here is a form where you may suggest new events: http://taste-of-mud.org/events/suggestions/new/

As we address unicyclist and organizers from different countries with our series, we would like to run our websites in more than just one language. Unfortunately we don’t speak many languages, so we need your help!
If you want to volunteer as a translator, send an email to info(at)taste-of-mud.org or use the contact form and tell us what languages you are fluent in.

Dirty Dozen- is that all in one race? If so how are the 3 courses organized? ie 2+ hrs on each.
It is basically a relay where always one rider per team is allowed on the course. One course is opened for a few hours and then the course gets changed. In the evening the teams will be riding on a track that is a bit easier and lighted by floodlight.
Last time we also included a small uphill race and a few laps of XC in between.
Here are some impressions from last year: http://taste-of-mud.org/gallery/albums/events/the-dirty-dozen/
This is a great idea! It would be fantastic to organise a few muni specific events around the time of Unicon XVI so that international riders could also participate. I know turtle was planning the elsbet (spelling?) event around then sometime- so a few more would be great too!
