Mountain biking

The Midstream College mountain biking team is becoming a force to be reckoned with at both provincial and national school levels. The 2018 season was one of the best the school has experienced. We had exceptional results throughout the season. Here is a short summary of our podium winners:

We are extremely proud of our girls’ team and are looking forward to the 2019 season. Midstream College was placed eleventh overall at the national final event of the Spur Schools MTB national finals. 71 schools were invited from across South Africa to participate in this prestigious MTB event.  Our Midstream girls placed fifth in the country, making us one of the strongest school cycling teams in South Africa.

Mountain biking is a second and third term sport and the inter-house mountain bike race will take place again in August at Midstream College. There will be a very exciting and unique mountain bike camp in the 2019 June/July school holidays to prepare our riders for the season. The league consists of four races held at various schools during the months of May, July, August and September. The season then finishes with the national final in September.

Here are the dates and venues for 2019:

Training takes place mainly on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays and we usually train at the Big Red Barn. In 2019 we will also have an off-season cycling academy to improve skills and pre-season training. The cyclists are divided into groups according to their abilities. Whether you are an elite cyclist or only in it for the fun and fitness, it is a great sport to get involved in. Energy, enthusiasm, a mountain bike and a helmet are all you need to be part of the Midstream College mountain biking team. Watch this space for more details regarding this programme.
