Rocky Trail Academy | GD Champs MTB Schools Comp | Welby NSW
Race Details:

An ‘EPIC’ school mountain bike event, guaranteed

This event will launch the Rocky Trail Academy Junior Development Programme in NSW and as the “GD Champs”. It will be held as a continuation of the original inter-schools event held at Welby commemorating the late George Dummer, a talented junior mountain biker. The event was originally held by the local Southern Highlands Oxley College and Chevalier College and we are honoured that our team may play a small part in celebrating George’s memory.

The race is part of the Rocky Trail Academy junior development programme and this will be the ‘epic edition’ of the popular schools comp with timed flow trail sections. It’s fun and all about building confidence. Geared towards secondary school students this race provides a competitive but fun day on the trails. This schools event not only engages youth in healthy social and active recreation but brings a heightened appreciation of nature, the environment, self-reliance, self-learning and independence, all as part of riding a bike in the outdoors. By extension, this program also engages and educates teachers and parents.

It is all about encouraging students of all abilities to come and race with their mates in a safe and social environment.

They will have an exciting racing experience and enjoy a fun event atmosphere together – great memories to share! Students will have the opportunity to test their riding ability across three skill areas on some of the most popular mountain bike trails at Welby Mountain Bike Park – Endurance, Speed and Technical Skills.

Riders may register individually (without a school), however, we ask that a parent/guardian is present on the day. Photos included, Live Timing! Podiums & Prizes!
