Mountain Biking

Mountain Biking at King's takes place in various forms during the year depending on riders' commitment and ability. During the summer months on a Wednesday afternoon we ride at various venues around Dunedin, allowing for multiple levels of riders.

There are two weekend Mountain Biking Camps, one at Naseby caters for the single track / cross country enthusiasts, another later in the year at Alexandra for the Down Hill Heads. Both are well patronised and very much enjoyed. 

Competitions

We do not compete in any formal competitions as a school but a number of young men do ride competitively.  There are some interschool opportunities available throughout the year. The sports department will make students aware of these.

History

One of our most accomplished Mountain bikers, Josh McCombie, joins an elite list of King's sportsmen to win a national title while at school.  He was the NZ U15 Downhill Mountain Bike Champion and has recently left school in pursuit of a downhill mountainbiking career.  Following on from Josh we have also seen Calum Booth flourish as an accomplished rider. Calum now assists with younger riders here at King’s.
