Schools have been taking to practice tracks in Casey, Cobden and Bendigo over the past month to prepare their riders, practice their changeovers and hone their vehicles. Through each session, the excitement is building for the trek to Maryborough for the 23rd RACV Energy Breakthrough.
In-vehicle practice is a vital part of preparing for the Energy Breakthrough and clocking up enough hours for our VicRoads Log Book and Licence requirements. More information on the Log Book and License requirements can be found in the school’s handbook, available from our Downloads page.
Here’s a quick wrap:
Bendigo 12 Hour Training Event
Over in Bendigo, an impressive 30 teams from 14 schools participated in a 12 hour practice session around the Bendigo Sale and Stockyards. The quality and quantity of the teams in Bendigo suggests that this city could now be considered the epic-centre of Human Powered Vehicles in Australia – though I’m sure that there would be some that might dispute this claim!
This looks like a well run show if this impressive footage captured by Brendan Cherry of Mile Creations is anything to go by:
