Pedal Magazine - - Out in Front -

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.–
