On Sunday 3 May, the first round of the Secondary Schools Road Race series got underway. Sacred Heart was represented by 19 riders ranging from Year 7 through to Year 13. The racing was held in near perfect conditions on Pukekohe race track with some great results coming from the Junior school.
In the under 13 year group, Year 7 riders Ryan McGuire and Finlay Jeffs came 4th and 6th respectively. Under 14 age group had Andrew Mathews and Ben Verhaaren place 4th and 8th. Under 15 had Cameron Davies in 13th place and under 17 rider James Mathews placing 12th. The under 19 riders were unfortunately involved in a crash during the race taking all of them out of the race, however prior to this they were riding well.
