Racergirl Launches

Last weekend, while in Victoria, I had dinner with Melanie McQuaid - the pro mountain biker sponsored by Rocky Mountain. We talked about a new initiative that she is heading up, called Racergirl. Racergirl is intended to encourage young girls and women to become involved in the sport of cycling. To that end, the Racergirl Foundation will invest in cycling programs and camps for women. Melanie has committed to donating 10% of her race winnings into the Foundation. The Racergirl website was launched today, and will contain (among other things) a weekly report from the pro circuit by Melanie. You can visit the Racergirl website at
