The first Casey Cycling Festival was held over the weekend in Berwick.

A total of 34 teams lined up in the event with 19 Secondary/Community teams and 15 Primary teams

taking part with organisers hailing the event a great success.

Some Fast Facts from the weekend:

  • Total distance covered was a cumulative 2,751 kms.
  • Average distance covered by Secondary Vehicles was 110.5 km per vehicle,

    at an average speed of 22 km/hr.

  • Average distance covered by the Primary vehicles was 60.4 kms , at an

    average speed over 17 km/hr.

  • (If we assumed each pit stop cost 20 seconds onto the lap time then the

    real average speed for the primary schools was 19.4 km/hr)

  • If the 20 sec penalty per lap for the primary schools is accurate, the top 2 primary schools would

    have been competitive with Black Betty(The Dads from Wheelers Hill).

All of the results were collected by RaceTime Computing – the timing team also responsible for

clocking every lap at Wonthaggi, Maroondah and Maryborough’s HPV events.
