2018 Victorian Schools Mountain Bike Championships

At the start line

Congratulations to all students who competed in this year’s Victorian Schools Mountain Bike Orienteering champs. The 96 Competitors were in for a windy morning to complete the 2 hour score course at the You Yangs.

Almost half the participants visited all controls within the time limit. Eloise Morris was the fastest rider on the day, completing the whole course in 56:49 to win Senior Girls Solo. Only 7 seconds behind her was Jeremy Frost, winning the Senior Boys age class.
Despite a few hiccups with out timing system; the day ran smoothly and there were smiles on the faces of the riders.

Braemar College was successful in retaining the Champion Schools Shield with a clear lead. Balwyn High came in second place but took home the Champion Government School Title. Third Place went to St Leonard’s College who had a perfect score: all of their entrants winning their respective age classes; also taking home the champion small schools title.
