St Margaret’s and Berwick Grammar School had 32 riders competing in the State Finals of the Victorian School’s Cycling Championship across the disciplines of Road Cycling and Mountain Biking in late October.
On a challenging Mountain biking course, 12 riders competed in excellent conditions. We had some fantastic results, which are listed below:
James McCurdy, Alistair Holloway, Sam Thompson, Patrick Holloway, Lachlan McPhee and Lachlan Webb also rode well in their races.
The Road Cycling races were held around the Bendigo central business district and 20 students competed in this event.
Podium results are listed below:
James McCurdy, Thomas Fenner, Millar Marks-Boulton, Clare McCurdy, River Dixon, Patrick Holloway, Justin Lake, Lachlan McPhee, Lachlan Webb also competed in the State Finals and rode extremely well in very fast racing conditions in each of their respective categories.
For the 6th consecutive year the Squad won the State Champion School’s trophy for both Mountain Biking and Road Cycling.
This is a sensational result for our students who have trained incredibly hard for this cycling series. I’d particularly like to recognise Nicole and Olivia, who have been tremendous members of the Squad since Year 7 and were able to complete their final cycling championships be winning their respective State Championship race.
