Pedal Prix

September 24, 2018 0 comments
 
This weekend 8 students from PIC competed in Round 6 of the HPV super series at Murray Bridge (Sturt Reserve). Students raced non-stop from 12pm Saturday through to 12pm Sunday displaying our school values and amazing spirit the whole time! All staff involved where extremely proud of the boys racing! 
Playford finished the race 23rd completing a staggering 411 laps or 750kms in 24 hours.
To put that into perspective the 8 students below rode from Elizabeth to Melbourne CBD in 24 hours! We are currently provisionally placed 13th overall for the series.
 
I would to acknowledge the work that Shaun Wallace has done over the year, without his help the 5 races we have competed in would not be possible!
 
Below is a summary of all the races we have competed in this year.
This year has seen Playford have undoubtedly the most successful year in the 10 years we have been involved in this program.
An example of this is that we did over 100 more laps this year at Murray Bridge compared to last year and overall this year we did over 1600kms this year or Elizabeth to Goolwa 7 times!
