Great results at Round 5 of the Victorian HPV Series

Near perfect weather conditions were experienced for the final round of the Victorian HPV Series held at Casey Fields last Saturday.

The St Margaret’s and Berwick Grammar School’s Human Powered Vehicle and Cycling Squad had 65 students and 24 parents and former students competing, fielding a total of 11 teams. With 109 vehicles entered into the event, our Squad made up 10% of the total field!

I was very pleased with our rider performances throughout the event. Most importantly, everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves, both on and off the track.

A very successful Victorian HPV Series for St Margaret’s and Berwick Grammar School’s Human Powered Vehicle and Cycling Squad. Our ‘Team’ is a very successful one only due to the fantastic support provided by our families, former students and the contribution of our sponsors. Without this we would not be able to provide so many students with an opportunity to compete in this sport.
