Current World Cup title holder, Catharine Pendrel to race this Saturday in Pemberton

Posted on May 25, 2010

May 25th, Pemberton, BC: Canada's Catharine Pendrel has confirmed she will be picking up her race plate Saturday morning (she registered several weeks ago) and will be racing Nimby Fifty.  

Catharine is riding very strong right now, winning the World Cup event in Offenburg, Germany last weekend, which put her at the top in current overall women's World Cup standings.  So if you see her before or after the race, be sure to give her a big high-five for her awesome achievements on the world mountain biking stage.

In addition to Catharine, the field is looking strong, with accomplished marathon xc race rippers like Whistler's Matt Bodkin and Jason Shorter, and Squamish's Dwayne Kress and Neal Kindree set to start, along with former 2x Canadian Cyclo-Cross Champion, Wendy Simms, and Four Jacks winner Sylvie Allen of Pemberton also in the line-up.

It's going to be quite a weekend in the small town 25 minutes North of Whistler, as 200+ experienced mountain bikers from Washington State and around British Columbia, including the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, the Interior and Sea-to-Sky country, descend on Pemberton, BC to race the first annual Nimby Fifty. A demanding bike race, which consists of a grueling 4500 feet of mainly single-track climbing and an equally challenging 4500 feet of descent, spread over just 30 km of epic technical bike trails.
