Batchelor wins $10,000 scholarship
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.
