    [​IMG]Reigning elite world champion Catharine Pendrel of the Luna Chix pro mountain bike team had a good weekend at the Albstadt XC World Cup, claiming third place. She won her second world championships in 2014 on the Orbea Oiz, and while it’s a bike she rides often, she was on the Orbea Alma hardtail at Albstadt. Photo: Logan VonBokel | VeloNews.com

      Pendrel rides Shimano’s M9050 Di2 with a 32-tooth single ring. The Shimano single chainring design features extra-tall teeth to keep the chain on the ring, but Pendrel also uses an E.Thirteen XCX chain watcher, just to be safe. Photo: Logan VonBokel | VeloNews.com

      Fox’s electronically-controlled iCD shock and fork allow Pendrel to control her suspension and drivetrain via small electronic remotes at the right grip. The rear derailleur, fork, and shock are all powered by an internal Shimano Di2 battery. Photo: Logan VonBokel | VeloNews.com

      Plenty of tiny zip-ties are used throughout Pendrel’s bike to keep the Di2 wires tidy. Here, the wire to the shock enters the seat tube, and the wire to the rear derailleur is kept away from the chainring. Photo: Logan VonBokel | VeloNews.com

      Pendrel’s Pro Tharsis XC Flat Top handlebars are designed to have Di2 wires run internally, but with the iCD fork, that does not look to be an option. Photo: Logan VonBokel | VeloNews.com

      In case anyone was wondering to whom the 27.5 Fox iCD fork with Canadian livery belonged, it’s written on the crown, too. Photo: Logan VonBokel | VeloNews.com
