Mareeba teens tear up Crankworx
TWO Mareeba locals ripped up the red dirt tracks in Cairns against some of the best mountain bikers in the world recently, coming first and third in the Crankworx competition.
Cayden and Krystal of St Stephen’s Catholic College raced harder and faster than ever before, competing against some of the best in the sport from across Australia, England, New Zealand, Canada and Europe.
Cayden competed in the under 19 Pump Track against competitors from Australia, New Zealand and France. After some very close and tight racing, Cayden finished in first place.
Krystal competed in the under 15 Pump Track and Dual Slalom against competitors from Australia and Great Britain.
Krystal demonstrated her skills and talent, finishing first in Pump Track and third in Dual Slalom.
For their outstanding performances, both Cayden and Krystal will be granted wild card entries into any event in the Crankworx calendar, having won gold medals in their respective events.
The staff and their peers at St Stephen’s congratulated the duo for their efforts and look forward to supporting them in their future biking endeavours.
