Record Breaking Hamilton Boys Take National Title
29 Sep, 2012

Hamilton Boys High School successfully defended their Team Time Trial national title in perfect weather conditions today at the New Zealand Schools Road Cycling Championships in Manawatu.
The five-strong team of Corby Price, Danyon Inwood, Stephen Brunskill, Sam Dobbs and Nick Reddish broke the men’s under-20 New Zealand record as they powered through the 16km course in a time of 22:05.42, to beat Auckland Grammar School and Christchurch Boys High School.
“The team have been training very well back at home and producing some very fast times so I’m not surprised at how they went today,” said Hamilton Boys coach Brian Fleck.
“The boys were elated with breaking the record; it’s really set the tone for the whole weekend.”
The Waikato school’s cycling programme is enjoying a stellar season, having won the same event at the North Island Schools Road Championships earlier this year.
“We’re fortunate to have some great training roads available in the Waikato, which could be to thank for this great run of form.”
Saint Kentigern College were the best of the women’s under-20 teams in beating Waikato Diocesan and Canterbury’s Rangi Ruru to win in 25:27.81.
This is an outstanding achievement for the Auckland secondary school, having been an all-boys school until just a decade ago.
In the under-16 category, Auckland Grammar School won the boys team time trial in a time of 23:23.89, whilst St Peter’s Cambridge was the fastest of the girls’ schools in 26:12.29.
Earlier in the day, Saint Kentigern’s year 7&8 boys won their event in 29:09.92 and fellow Aucklanders Baradene College won the year 7&8 girls in a time of 30:30.15.  
The championships continue tomorrow with an exciting road race, before wrapping up on Monday with a multi-lap points race around the 3km Manfeild Raceway.
