Batch­e­lor wins $10,000 schol­ar­ship

Mansfield Courier - - SPORT -

MANS­FIELD Mount Buller Cy­cling Club’s very own Jodie Batch­e­lor has been suc­cess­ful in se­cur­ing a schol­ar­ship of al­most $10,000 from Sport and Recreation Vic­to­ria (SRV).

The money, se­cured through SRV’s ‘Change Our Game Schol­ar­ship’, has been awarded to Jodie to as­sist her climb through the cy­cling Com­mis­saire ranks - both at a na­tional and internatio­nal level.

In April this year, Jodie passed the Elite Na­tional Com­mis­saire Road and Track Course, held up in Queens­land, mak­ing her the only fe­male in Vic­to­ria at this Com­mis­saire level.

Jodie’s goal is to now pro­ceed to the UCI, to sit the UCI Track Course - held in Novem­ber 2019.

The schol­ar­ship will help Jodie get the ex­pe­ri­ence re­quired to hope­fully be the preferred can­di­date for Cy­cling Aus­tralia to then travel to Switzer­land to at­tend the UCI Track Course.

Well done Jodie.

WELL DONE: MMBCC mem­ber Jodie Batch­e­lor has been suc­cess­ful in se­cur­ing an al­most $10,000 grant from Sport and Recreation Vic­to­ria to help her progress through cy­cling.
