Olympic Moms Pt. 3: Johanna Bertin
Catharine Pendrel heads into the Olympics as the reigning world champion in Mountain biking.
When she raced a test event on the course in London last year-she won that too. Not bad for a girl who says she "sucked at high school sports."
Catharine lives and trains in Kamloops, but she grew up on a horse farm in Harvey Station, New Brunswick.
That's where we reached her mom Johanna Bertin, earlier.

The women's mountain biking event is on August 11th. That's Day 16 of the Olympic Games in London, and we hope to catch up with Johanna after that to get her call on how Catharine did.
