MOYSTON Primary School has taken out the champion school in the BMX discipline of the Victorian schools cycling championships for the third consecutive year.
It also had two individual age champions – Aaliyah Spry in the eight/nine year old girls’ and April Marshall in 12/13 year old girls’ divisions. All students that participated rode extremely well with many placings across all age groups.
The VSCC is a series school of cycling events across three disciplines: Road, BMX and mountain bike. Both licensed (racing) and un-licensed (novice) riders participate in cycling races on fun and safe courses across the state. Moyston students competed against schools from every corner of Victoria. The discipline of BMX is incorporated into the school’s curriculum as part of PE and after school activities.
The BMX events are co-hosted by Cycling Victoria and local cycling clubs, thereby providing a pathway for on-going participation in the sport.
