Our cyclists have once again excelled in a fantastic weekend at Cambridge competing in the North Island Secondary Schools Road and Track Cycling Championships.
On Saturday and Sunday our squad raced over the 3 events at the Road Champs. Despite a forced number of withdrawals due to illness it was great to see all our girls ride with great pride and guts coming away as TOP GIRLS SCHOOL.
We say a huge thank you to our wonderful coaching team, led by Paul Leitch, and the Cycling Committee for their organisation and assistance over the weekend.
