This is made possible by SRAM, Park Tool, UBI, DT Swiss, Problem Solvers, SPANK, MAXXIS, DERO Bike Racks, and WTB. Check out the press-release below!
“The winners were selected from nearly 300 qualified applicants because of their passion for increasing ridership among underrepresented groups and their demonstrated commitment to the projects they’re currently working on. The scholarship covers the winners’ tuition and lodging, plus a stipend to help defray the personal expenses of travel and meals.”
“The time spent at UBI will help each recipient build a solid foundation of technical knowledge to strengthen their bike industry career while also helping to grow the network of talented mechanics.”
