5th NICA Annual Awards Announced with 2014 World MTB Champion Catharine Pendrel Hosting

BERKELEY - Calif. Catharine Pendrel of Team LUNA Chix will be the guest of honor for the National Interscholastic Cycling Association’s annual awards ride and banquet, January 24th, 2015. Robin Farina, president of the Women’s Cycling Association and 2011 National Road Race Champion, will serve as the master of ceremonies for the banquet.

Pendrel states, “I am super excited to be a part of the NICA Annual Awards! NICA is an amazing program that I wish existed when I was a teenager…and in Canada! There is nothing that inspires me more than seeing young people having fun on bikes. Cycling has given me so much as a person. It has encouraged me to really challenge myself and discover my potential, not only as an athlete, but as a mentor. For this I am ever grateful. I look forward to meeting the next generation of cyclists!”
