Catharine Pendrel Youth Scholarship
The first recipients of the Catharine Pendrel Youth Scholarship were named at the
2018 MTB XCO Canadian Championships this year in Canmore, Alta., an award that recognizes passion, commitment and the values that Pendrel has shown throughout her Professional mountain-biking career. The purpose of the scholarship is to encourage excellence among Canadian junior mountain bikers, with a total of $1,000 being made available to one male and one female athlete. The financial support would offset the many costs associated with pursuing a Professional mountain-biking career, and is intended to inspire young Canadian athletes around the country. Pendrel herself presented B.C.’s Emilly Johnston and Quebec’s Charles-Antoine St-Onge with the inaugural award after the 2018 Championships.–
