Report from Sadie and the organisers…

Sunday saw the Auckland Secondary School Individual XC Champs unfold at Woodhill Bike Park. There was controversy, crashes and courageous efforts. A day of excitement. JAFAKIDS featured on the podium but what impressed me most was the humble winners, the support of each other and everybody giving their all on the day.

But wait we have more Rockstars. Those who made the event happen. I am talking about the parents, and siblings,  your parents, your brothers and sisters who volunteered their time to mark the course, marshal, time keep, cook sausages, sell coffee, pull in tape, take photos etc. Without these rock-stars this event could not happen. So a big thank you from us, the organisers, to your whanau.
