August 17th we hosted our 2nd annual 180 for ONE80TC Spin Event.
Once again hosted by Castle Hill RSL in the front foyer we hosted 7 teams smashing out 180 km on spin bikes.
With three teams from Castle Hill RSL - representing management, staff and C2K they were competing for line honours hoping to overturn the previous record set by Castle Hill RSL Staff team in 2016.
We also had teams from TREK Bicycle Store Rouse Hill, Sports Apparel Australia, and two teams from ONE80TC (men's and women's).
While all our riders hit out their 30 km contribution, there were three teams intent on racing the 180 km as a team. The Castle Hill RSL teams hit it off at 11:00 am and the competition was intense, with staff paying close attention to spin rotations, speed, resistance and the all important rider changeovers.
At 4:00 pm in the afternoon the three teams were smashing it out. Alas, for the 2016 line honour champions, Castle Hill RSL staff team, they were out of contention - too far to pull back. But Castle Hill RSL Management and the C2K Fitness teams were neck and neck, with C2K rapidly reeling in the leading management team.
Then at 4:20 pm, 180 km late, there was only 200 metres in it as CASTLE HILL RSL MANAGEMENT team took out the line honours and crowned the 2017 champions!
Captured are the final moments as the Castle Hill Management team achieve line honours! For the record they also smashed their fundraising efforts and contributed over $5,000 towards ONE80TC.
Thank you to all involved and we look forward to an even more extraordinary event next year!
