Suburban School's biking fraternity has proved practise makes all the difference, coming second overall in a recent interschools mountainbike race.
The group of seven keen bikers were picked to go to the race, which was organised by Seddon School students, after having displayed a commitment to their training which has seen them pushing themselves at lunchtimes to train around the Kowhai and adjoining roads.
The school also has a dirt bike track which is regularly used by all the school's bikers.
Although Suburban School did not have any year 7 or 8 students, they scored enough points to secure second place, earning 50.
Overall winners, host school Seddon, earned 70, while Tua Marina took third place with 41 points.
