On 17th of June, Cardijn College competed in an exhausting 6-hour race. The two teams consisted of students from different year levels cooperating to achieve greatness. The two teams (Southern Blue and Genesis) pushed hard, worked hard and pedalled even faster!
Southern Blue ranked 102nd (out of 150) and Genesis amazingly finished the race in eighth! Fantastic results from both teams.
The race was at Victoria Park racecourse starting at 10am with the first driver, Blake behind the Genesis trike (pictured). On this racecourse is a corner called 'crash corner', it is known for its immense amount of crashes! Both the Cardijn trikes unfortunately crashed! This crash was big as more than 50 cars were involved or damaged.
Our cheer squad was in full effect with sideline cheers and encouragement coming from everyone, even some furry friends! Both trikes performed extremely well, throughout the day! Working hard and pedalling even harder to the finish line putting in a fantastic effort and brilliant results!
Stay tuned until the next race!
Congratulations to the Pedal Prix Genesis team who finished 3rd in their category in Race 2 at Loxton. The team has been training hard for the 2017 Pedal Prix season and this is a great start to a very competitive competition in the senior secondary category. Congratulations to Ronan Jones (11FA) who pushed Genesis to record the fastest lap.
