The Luna women's mountain bike team will participate in next year's BC Bike Race scheduled for June 28-July 4. Catherine Pendrel and Katerina Nash, both former Olympians, are slated to tackle the race together with the goal of having fun while using the event as an important part of their 2009 season.
"Having these two amazing women and the Luna Pro Team here at the BC Bike Race will hopefully inspire more women to undertake this exhilarating challenge," said President Dean Payne. "It's hard, but fun, and there isn't a better way out there to see this amazing countryside."
The team's motto of getting more women into sports and playing outside dovetails into the overall vision of the BC Bike Race, a seven-day mountain bike stage race with the goal of getting people outside for better health, stress relief and self-actualization.
