Hunter Christian School Mountain Bike Team News – the Rocky Trail Entertainment Shimano Grand Prix Series wraps up for 2019

After travelling around the state for five events spread across half a year, the students, staff and parents from the Hunter Schools’ Mountain Bike Team (MTB), have just concluded the Rocky Trail Entertainment Shimano Grand Prix (GP) series!

Long drives in the Hunter Christian School bus took us to venues across NSW, such as Stromlo Forest MTB Park in Canberra and the Wingello State forest in the Southern Highlands. The June event on our “local turf” at Glenrock came with a welcome home-town advantage, (and a sleep in!), before we headed off to Nowra State Forest ‘Coondoo’ for an epic weekend of fast, flat riding by day and shared living quarters in the one house by night! The final round in August at the Ourimbah State Forest was possibly the most challenging of the series, full of rocky descents and up-hill pedaling.

Congratulations must go to all the mountain bike riders who participated in the 2019 race series! Our own MTB race team dominated the General Classification across all race formats, securing podium finishes for the following members:

FAST GP – 4hour Format (under 18s)
