Featuring some of the country’s top sportspeople—Olympic bronze medallist Catherine Pendrel, the event’s defending champion, will be riding in the women’s competition, while seven-time National Champion and fellow Olympian Geoff Kabush will be vying for the top spot in the men’s event—Saturday’s mountain biking race will bring some of the country’s most esteemed names to B.C.
