National Secondary Schools' Mountain Biking Championships


Held in Rotorua’s fantastic Whakarewarewa Forest, two of our fastest XC racers who have been training hard all year, headed off to ride the fast pumice tracks.

Although only aged 17 years, Cathal Guiney competed in the U20 section which bodes well for next year’s aim of bettering his time. Riding 27.5 kms in a field of 26 riders, Cathal came in an impressive 6th.

Hayden Jefferson competed in the U17, riding four laps making for a 22km course, and came in at 5th place from a field of 36 riders.

Winner 1.0’.24” - Hayden 1.1’.31”
