Sidney McGill sidelined by pre-ride crash in Australia

Second year Juventus Junior Sidney McGill has had a string of unfortunate luck. Still - Sidney worked her way through both health issues and crash injuries to prepare to compete against the top Junior Women from around the world.   

At the end of August, Sidney travelled with the Canadian Team to Cairns, Australia for the 2017 UCI Mountain Bike World Championships.

A fluke crash two days out from competition resulted in a sprained wrist that will prevent Sidney from competing. As you can imagine, this is a devastating turn of events  . . . all of the hard work and effort to get in top form . . . and now just waiting for the body to heal. 

Sport excellence is never easy. Congratulations Sidney on all of your hard work to prepare for these World Championships, and congratulations on your selection to the Canadian Junior Women's National Team! We look forward to your return to racing, stronger and better than ever!
