WITH faster times, larger crowds and more impressive rigs than ever before, this year's RACQ Technology Challenge in Maryborough has been the biggest one yet.

The 24-hour cycling and endurance challenge drew more than 2,500 students and supporters from all over Australia to the barricaded streets of Maryborough's CBD, fighting to see who had the fastest, strongest cycling invention.

The heart of the heritage city was turned into a 1.5km racing track, where teams of 10 rode virtually almost non-stop from noon on Saturday, through to noon on Sunday.

Maryborough's own St Mary's College took out fastest time in the open mixed category, second in the open boys category and third in the open girls category.
