Mountain Biking has long been a strength at Westlake Boys’ High School and this is no less true in the year 2010.
The Mountain Biking season centres around several Auckland-based events in Riverhead and Woodhill Forests. The boys compete in the Auckland Individual Championships in early May, before a Winter Series of four races throughout July and August.
The top boys compete each April at the National Championships held in Levin , this consisting of a Cross Country, Hill Climb and Downhill with the best combined points taking the overall crown. The results for the 2010 season are as follows:
- Locky MacArthur (Year 13) 4th Cross Country and Hill Climb National Mountain Bike Champs, 2nd Overall.
1st Auckland Secondary Schools Champs
- Kurt Standen (Year 9) 4th Cross Country and 2nd Hill Climb National Mountain Bike Champs, 3rd Overall
- Ben Reynolds (Year 12) 4th Hill Climb National Mountain Bike Champs, 6th Overall
- Daniel Harris (Year 12) 13th Overall National Mountain Bike Champs, 4th Auckland Secondary Champs.
As well as this, in the past few years Westlake has had numerous New Zealand Representatives in Mountain Biking including
