At Murray Bridge High School, Pedal Prix is quite different from the usual extracurricular sport.

In year eight, participation in the program is not compulsory.

Students are given the opportunity to join the team to compete on their own accord. All students – cyclists, football players, runners – are welcome to tryout ranging in age from year eight to year 12.

They even cater for students who don’t usually participate in team sports, or those who don’t usually participate in sport at all.

The school’s lead team – GT Human Power-Nemesis – is not a select group of trained cyclists, but a combination of current and graduate students of MBHS.

The students in this particular team are aged between 16 and 18 years and have been competing in Pedal Prix since year eight.

Their years of experience have taught them the ins and outs of trike racing, giving them a determination and drive to achieve their best.

Team Nemesis’ experience is utilised to mentor the younger participants in the development team – Cadence.

This season, the MBHS team’s excellent preseason preparation has reflected in their best race results so far, including first in category C5, and third in category C5.

Throughout the year MBHS are generously supported by major sponsors Adelaide Hills Tyre and 4WD Centre, Murray City Lions, Murray Bridge Lions and AutoPro Murray Bridge.

The team also appreciates the contributions from Coles Murray Bridge, IGA Swanport, Newell Composites, Murdoch Insurance Brokers and Trump Engineering-Trump Trikes.
