This weekend marked the second anniversary of the womens specific slopestyle event; the Sugar Showdown. The event, held at Duthie Hill Mountain Bike Park, just east of Seattle, Washington, drew the best of the best of women's mountain-biking out for a weekend of coaching, competition, and good times.

Kat Sweet rallies her troops in for a brief morning meeting before splitting into groups and riding getting underway.

Kat Sweet and Tammy Donahugh, both put tremendous energy into putting on these events and keeping stoke in the infinitely growing women's mountain-biking scene.

Back home from the first set of World Cups, Jill Kintner joins the ladies taking a role coaching and inspiring.

Everyone broke into groups and riding got underway.

And after a weekend that rad, everyone was about this stoked.

Full results here.

We would like to thank the sponsors and supporters of the Sugar Showdown.

 Only thing better than scoring a few free hours on a sunny afternoon to hit Duthie, was riding to the start of Semper Dirticus and seeing the colorful and ripping "lady train" in action.
