On Tuesday 10 students took part in the ‘Bike it Festival’ at the Velodrom, part of the iconic Olympic Venue. The inspirational day included a BMX track experience on the Olympic BMX outdoor track followed by ‘Bikeworks’, an all ability cycle workshop with modified bikes. Students were then taken on a tour of the stadium where they had a chance to sit in the commentators box.

After lunch students took part in the Rollapuza cycling test. This is a 250m sprint test. Students and staff raced all day with Mr. Muscat clocking up the fastest time of the day at an Olympic qualifying sub 10 second time with Miss Moore not too far behind. Sergio T. came close to winning a super speed Olympic bike when he cam second in the overall student race, if it had not been for a slow start Sergio would have no doubt been cycling his way home.

The day was completed in fine fashion with Sergio M. and Sahil P. tail whipping on the BMX stunt bikes with World Record holder Matti Hemmings.
