SRAM announces winner of women's mechanic scholarship

Published October 3, 2017

CHICAGO (BRAIN) — SRAM has announced the winner of a women's scholarship for the Professional Bicycle Mechanic Association workshop. The company announced the scholarship last month.

Lindsey Yokley, of Trace Bikes in Nashville was chosen as the recipient of the scholarship award. Yokley has worked as a mechanic in a shop since 2014 and is very involved in her local cycling community as a ride leader and member of the Tennessee Women's Cycling Project. She also volunteers for the Harpeth Youth Cycling Club. 

"I plan to use the knowledge I gain at this workshop to promote and educate cyclists on the products they own. I want to share with my customers, teammates and friends the full potential of their bicycle, the parts on it, and show them how to maintain it and make it last," she said.

James Stanfill, the founder of PBMA, said, "The PBMA is excited to work with SRAM on this and more opportunities for women in our industry; we look forward to hosting Lindsey at our Portland workshop."

PBMA is holding three, three-day technical workshops in three cities this fall and winter.
