Rebecca Henderson in the Olympic Cross Country

Make a note in your diary!

Local Canberra mountain biker and Commonwealth Games Bronze medallist, Rebecca Henderson, is all set to ride in her second Olympic Cross Country final in Rio this coming weekend. Rebecca started her mountain biking career competing in ACT Schools Championships and CORC club races, and has been a source of inspiration for many of our club juniors and female riders alike. It will be well worth the late night to see Bec race early Sunday morning – broadcast on 21st August at 2:30am (AEDT).

Rebecca’s partner, Dan McConnell, who is another local legend, will also be racing his 3rd Olympic games final on the weekend. Dan’s race is due for broadcast on 22nd August at 2:30am (AEDT)

I’m sure everyone will join us in wishing them both two great races.
