The Team Managers put in an enormous amount of work to support the teams, and we thank them all for their magnificent work.

 

The event would not be possible without the pit and catering teams. The crew organised all of the equipment in the lead up, then made fast tyre and rider changes, fixed damaged trikes and kept everyone hydrated and fed during the event.

Thanks to the following members of the pit crew; Rory Baker, Tilly Davis, Luke Driscoll, Dillon Ferguson, Geordie Gollop, Ella Govan, Dom Roche, Hannah Lanfranchi, Oakley Maddison, Tyler Medlyn, Felicity Rentsch and Mrs Medlyn.

 

There were also numerous staff and past students who assisted preparations and across the weekend, and we extend our appreciation to those people.

 

We would again like to recognise Daryl Stewart. Daryl has been building and supporting Highview College race trikes for many years now. This year he again produced three immaculate trikes. These trikes raced so fast, yet so reliably, to win two races, and place second in the other.

Overall, all three trikes finished inside the top eleven overall finish on the track, and completed a total of 1952km across the event.

Daryl also volunteered his time to educate our teams on the Design & Construction element of the event. We were able to win that section with two of our three teams, and place third in the other. We thank Daryl for his exceptional work.

The results were fantastic. Winning all three of our categories was an incredible achievement and something we are enormously proud of - however that is just a bonus. The event benefits students in many ways. It teaches them how to work hard, to commit to learning and getting better, team work, appreciation, gratitude and pushing themselves physically, mentally and emotionally. And it is a privilege to be involved.

 

Congratulations to all riders and pit crew for their efforts, attitude and behaviour across the event. The team spirit and family involvement were excellent and the joy and feel amongst the group was very positive.

 

A big thank you again to all staff and parent helpers throughout the entire program and particularly the weekend.

 

We are extremely appreciative of the community support. The generous support of many organisations provides this wonderful opportunity for our students and families, and would not be possible without the kind contributions.
