TWO Tathra Public School pupils stole the show at the inaugural Bundadung Blitz Interschools MTB Challenge on Friday.
Charlie Todd and Dylan Moon worked together to complete an impressive 57 kilometres in three hours.
The pair, known as the “Tathra Terrors”, recorded speeds of just under 20 kilometres per hour over 19 laps of single trail.
Charlie and Dylan, both aged 11, combined to win the primary school boys category.
Charlie, a member of the Tathra Mountain Bike Club, started the blitz by completing the first two laps in 18 minutes and 49 seconds.
From there, the Tathra Terrors continued to gather momentum, including a best completed lap time of eight minutes, 56 seconds.
While Charlie set the fastest times, Dylan certainly didn’t let his team-mate down, consistently finishing laps in under 11 minutes.
The pair competed against teams of three, but no-one could catch them, according to event organiser Andy Johnson.
Johnson said the Tathra Terrors’ performance was on par with the senior high school competitors.
“No-one matched them until the seniors,” he said.
“Without a doubt, they both really impressed us.
“Charlie is a future champion, we already knew that from previous performances at the Tathra MTB Club, but Dylan surprised us with regular lap times.”
Johnson said Charlie and Dylan caught the eye of everyone attending, including Vincentia High teacher James Wright.
“James couldn’t believe their talent,” he said.
More than 100 students took part in the Blitz, the first of its kind to be held in Tathra.
Thirty-seven teams from nine schools took part in the event.
Boys and girls of all ages competed in four divisions – primary, junior high, intermediate high and senior high.
