MTB stars go back to school

 

PCS director Donna Dall reports.

PCS Coach Jodie Willett and World Cup trials rider and Mountain Bike Australia female elite rider nominee for 2012, Janine Jungfels recently visited the Woodridge State School in Brisbane's south in conjunction with the Pathways to Resilience program.

Willett hailed the visit a cracking success with trials rider Janine Jungfels stealing the show with her superior trials riding skills and tricks.  Jungfels of Brisbane recently won round 4 inPra-Loup, France & round 5 in Geneva, Switzerland of the Mountain Bike Trials World Cup Series and came a credible 6th place in the recent MTB Trials World Championships in Saalfelden, Austria.

There were at least 200 kids from the school who participated in the visit.  The kids had some great questions about the girls’ bikes and their respective disciplines within the sport of mountain biking.  A lot of the school kids have bikes of their own and were very excited to learn about the opportunities that sport and riding in particular could give them.

The Pathways to Resilience Trust aims to reach as many children and families as possible throughout Australia in regional, remote, and low socio-economic communities. To promote the success of children and young people in school and life through the implementation of anxiety prevention and emotional resilience programs in our schools.
