The Sombrio Freeride Scholarship
Spreading the Spirit of Freeride
Sombrio started as a cartel – a crew of freeride pioneers exploring the possibilities of what life on two wheels could bring. The spirit of freeride has been at our core since the beginning. It’s all about being creative, pushing the limits, and having fun along the way. It’s about sharing our passion with others and it’s what motivates us every day.
Sombrio, in partnership with IMBA Canada, is proud to introduce the 2nd annual Sombrio Freeride Scholarship – a free ride to an all-inclusive week-long session at mountain bike camp in Whistler, BC, awarded to a promising young rider who embodies the spirit of freeride.
Sombrio has released a special edition apparel collection with a portion of proceeds going towards funding the Freeride Scholarship.* For 2019, our special edition collection highlights the tools of the trade.
The 2019 Sombrio Freeride Scholarship is open to Canadian residents with a minimum of intermediate mountain bike skills between the ages of 13 and 18 years old, with parental consent. The scholarship includes:
- Tuition for a week-long summer bike camp in Whistler, BC with professional coaching. (Camp dates are July 13-20, 2019)
- Supervised accommodation
- Return transportation from anywhere in Canada
- Week-long high performance mountain bike rental
