BSE Students from Years 7, 9 & 10 enthusiastically gave up their first weekend of the School Holidays to compete in the SA International Pedal Prix competition.
An amazing effort was given by all students to qualify 5th on the grid out of 225 teams. This was an outstanding result considering the bike qualified in front of most of the senior and community teams. The team completed 381 laps, each lap 2.06 kms, a total of 785 km. The team was running in equal first, excitement was building at the possibility of a podium finish when the bikes chain broke causing it to roll. Disappointment turned to determination and 32 mins later the bike was in action gaining a well deserved 6th position in their category.
Nicholas Simpson gave a standout performance, displaying great skills and determination. Huge congratulations to all who participated in and supported the BSE team. Well done!
