2020 was a challenging year for our mountain biking team. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, all Spur League races were cancelled. This unfortunately included our annual mountain biking camp. In spite of the pandemic, we still managed to arrange and complete an inter-house mountain biking event.

 

The mountain bikers had five days to race a short course of about 5 km at the Big Red Barn. They could race the course as many times as they wanted to. Their rides were uploaded onto Strava where their times and attempts were tracked. This helped us to determine the fastest boy and girl in each age category.

Here are the category winners for 2020:

Senior Boys:             Keanu Selby

Senior Girls:              Jade Slabbert

Junior Boys:              Joshua-Alwyn Smit

Junior Girls:               Lucy Carroll

 

We are looking forward to a normal 2021. Here are the dates for 2021:
