Australian Idol: AIS on the lookout for talented female MTBers

The Australian Institute of Sport Talent Search Program announced this week that it is conducting an project looking to identify females with persistence and determination to succeed in cross-country mountain biking. The group is seeking a pool of approximately twenty females between 17 and 27 years old (parental consent required if <18 years old) with experience riding a bicycle (road, track, BMX, MTB) and who live in Victoria, NSW or the ACT (ACT residents: if you are willing to travel to Sydney for testing).

The “Dirt Roads to London” initiative aims to identify the most talented females who could potentially represent Australia at the 2012 Olympics Games in London and provide them with the opportunities to become nationally and internationally competitive mountain bikers. The Australian Institute of Sport Talent Search Program will provide coaching from some of the best mountain bike coaches in Australia, training and education camps and assistance with access to competition.

Interested girls should apply by April 17th www.ais.org.au/talent/cycling/ or email Tammie Ebert at tammie.ebert@ausport.gov.au
