Glenaeon students form MTB team at Thredbo

17 February 2022

A group of keen mountain biking enthusiasts from Glenaeon are forming a team to participate in the Australian MTB Interschools event taking place at Thredbo from March 23-27.  The event is open to students from Class 5 to Year 12.

The 2022 Australian MTB Interschools event gives school students the opportunity to experience the enthusiasm and energy of a rapidly growing sport in a competitive, educational and supportive atmosphere. The primary aim is to promote participation and evoke interest in competitive biking in the younger generation. The event involves mountain biking disciplines including Cross Country, Downhill, Flow, Pump Track and a new All-Mountain event. The group has the support of Glenaeon PDHPE teacher Jonas Stoebe and Outdoor Education teacher Scott Williams, and looks forward to bringing their Glenaeon spirit and skill to Thredbo!

At this stage we are aware of 10 riders who will be competing but would love to know about others who are already planning on going. We do plan to get team t-shirts printed so would need to know of others by the end of this week. We would like to encourage anyone from Glenaeon who is keen to join to connect with this group. Please get in touch with Simon Clarke (parent of Sammy – Year 8 and Jasper – Year 10) on 0406 537 848.

We wish all participants in this event, a wonderful time at Thredbo.
