 This was Giant's women's ride clinic. Most of these girls were learning and/or advancing their skill. I think we, as Pinkbike users, often expect these banger videos on the main page. I think we should view these videos as an opportunity to show your female friends, sister, girlfriend, wife, mom, etc... That mountain biking is truly a sport for everyone. Perhaps these videos can inspire more women to give the sport a try and not feel like its all extreme all the time.

Lady train on A-Line... "effing" awesome! Thanks for the vid.

 To be fair, they somehow only managed to film the beginners. A lot of the girls are WAY better than shown.

 Very cool. This is how I got my daughters to jump and gain confidence downhill, showed them videos of other girls riding. And let me tell ya, there are very few of those videos out there. My older daughter said,"Oh, I look like that, right?" "Yeah, ALOT of people look like that". "Oh, well when are we going riding again?" She thought she had to ride like me to be good. She's hooked... The other one saw an old episode of the Athertons and wanted to find a double to jump after watching Rachel ride. And did one!! The ladies in the video might not have gone huge, but I'll bet a girl somewhere was just inspired to push herself. That's cool...

 i'm always amazed at the number of women shredding in Vancouver/Whistler everytime I visit. Walking around the village the first day of Crankworx made me wish I would have scheduled my business trip for a longer stay. UGH!!!!

Some drunk guy followed me down A-Line and although he crashed a couple of times he made it down. A-Line and Dirt Merchant = FUUUNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!

 AAHH. how cute. Nice vid, but I don't think the girls where thinking that their riding was cute. I showed my daughter, and she said, why don't they show them ripping the lines w/ some gnarly tunes like they do for the guys. Girls just want to have fun, really.

 Agree the song kills it ...it's kind of not taking it seriously kinder makes fun of the vid and girls ridding . So come on I want to see a vid with females shredding it with good ripping tunes please . Ps the song stereotypes females in what can seem a male dominated sport . But this is not the case so again I ask please give us a better vid that shows just how they rip . Slow mo sucks to

 There is one more difference noticeable between genders, consistency and stalibility of riding through terain that keeps bending and rocking bikes.

 Well they are girls so ya

 That is nothing worse. Just a difference. In some sections it may occur even better not to hold a bike so stable.

 Do it. Fly to Seattle on Southwest take your bike ($75 each way) drive up to Vancouver (2.5hrs) stay the night. Ride North Shore (Froome, Seymour, Cypress) Drive to Whistler (2hrs) and since you brought your bike you can hit Squamish on the way back if you are not tooo tired. Flying will be cheaper than driving in your case, depending on vehicle of course.
