For the fifth year running, MCNS had teams in the NSW All Schools Championship, held at Yellomundee in the Blue Mountains. The race is based on how many laps of the 4.5 km (Junior) or 5.5 km (Senior) km bush track can be completed by team members in 4 hours.

The Senior team was represented by Jayin, Lucas M, Alex B and Harrison M (who couldn’t resist changing schools for the event).

The Junior team comprised Ned H, Arthur T, Griffin K and Robert M.

The day was perfect for the race and competition from the 250 riders in the event was intense. Our teams rode strongly and did well in the rankings, especially considering that virtually all of the schools present have Mountain Biking as a school sport. The riders all had a great day (albeit a very dusty one) despite a number of spills.

Many thanks to the parents who came along and supported the boys so well.
