June 12, 2017 – In it’s first year as a team, Forward Racing-Norco will be offering two $500 awards to young Canadian mountain bike racers with aspirations to race at the highest level of our sport. There will be one male and one female recipient.
Evan McNeely and Andrew L’Esperance of Forward Racing have been very fortunate to receive the support of countless individuals on the Canadian mountain bike scene; both through our own development and in the creation of the team. This support and generosity is what keeps our sport going and we want to be a part of that process. We hope that this fund will encourage a young rider to get to the start line when they might not have otherwise been able to do so.
For the first year, we will award selected male and female applicants $500 each that can be used to offset travel and race fees. Please follow the link here for more details and how to apply.
