Massey High School - Sports/Culture - Cycling


Massey has produced numerous national representative riders in the past two decades and enjoyed a great deal of team success. The Junior Boys team won the New Zealand Secondary Schools Team Time Trial title in 1993. The Senior Girls won their first New Zealand Team Time Trial Title in 1994. The team finished off 1994 at the top of New Zealand Secondary Schools Cycling by winning the Junior Boys, Junior Girls, Senior Girls, and Senior Boys New Zealand Individual Cycling Championships. In 1995 Massey High School began to dominate New Zealand Secondary Schools Cycling. The Senior Girls successfully defended their Auckland and National Titles and the Senior Boys won the New Zealand Title.

In 1996 the Senior Boys were undefeated through the year, won the Auckland Points Series, the Auckland Championships, the Auckland Handicap Series (it was only the second time one team had won all three titles), the North Island Championships, and the New Zealand Team Time Trial Championships. The Senior Girls completed a hat-trick for them in retaining their New Zealand Secondary Schools Cycling Title. Individually the following students have all represented New Zealand at school or club level, Vanessa Cheatley, Jon-Paul Hendriksen, George Fuge, Kirsty Robb, Gordon Bearman, Windy Rodokal, Marina Duvnjak, Jarrod Scott, Wade Rose, Lisa Haynes, and Brian Good.

In 2011 Mayor Len Brown presented the school with a cheque for $2,000 to 'Massey Cycling' which he described as the "future of New Zealand cycling". Sammy Croft was selected to the Under 17 New Zealand Development Squad for track cycling at the age of 14.

Famous quotes containing the word cycling:

    I shall not bring an automobile with me. These inventions infest France almost as much as Bloomer cycling costumes, but they make a horrid racket, and are particularly objectionable. So are the Bloomers. Nothing more abominable has ever been invented. Perhaps the automobile tricycles may succeed better, but I abjure all these works of the devil.
    Henry Brooks Adams (1838–1918)

    If all feeling for grace and beauty were not extinguished in the mass of mankind at the actual moment, such a method of locomotion as cycling could never have found acceptance; no man or woman with the slightest aesthetic sense could assume the ludicrous position necessary for it.
    Ouida [Marie Louise De La Ramée] (1839–1908)

    From the war of nature, from famine and death, the most exalted object which we are capable of conceiving, namely, the production of the higher animals, directly follows. There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.
    Charles Darwin (1809–1882)
