Cycling Victoria’s ‘Schools’ Mountain Bike
Last Sunday, a number of Middle School students enjoyed the opportunity to compete in Cycling Victoria’s ‘Schools’ Mountain Bike series at the You Yangs.
The students attacked the undulating course with skill and speed to compete very well against a full field of riders. Alexis Jane (Year 5) finished 2nd in her Under-13 event, which is a great result and we congratulate her on this achievement.
Sam Coleman (Year 5), Spencer Jones (Year 5) and Sam Iddles (Year 6) raced very well in the Under-13 age group, finishing a respectable 12th, 13th and 14th respectively. Charley Green (Year 5) was a late withdrawal on the day due to illness, but was still there to support his teammates.
Further, Riley Taylor (Year 7) has competed in the Under-15 age group for this series, finishing 5th in Round 1, unfortunately suffering mechanical problems in Round 2 and finishing 3rd last Sunday in Round 3. Riley will now compete at the State Finals in Bendigo in October, where we wish him all the very best for this event.
