There's a mix of returning and new crew of riders taking part in women's freeride mountain biking progression session Red Bull Formation this year in Virgin, Utah. From what you'll see below, a ton of progress is being made and these women are sending it in the desert!

Veronique Sandler was unable to make the trip due to travel restrictions, which means that first alternate Camila Nogueira will be one of the eight athletes competing.

 All talented athletes, each killing it with their own respective styles. No model/influencer athletes here. Good to see the sport finally moving in a direction where talent and dedication beats out looking pretty and getting the most likes on the gram.

 Love what they're doing here as well. Ironically, all of these are posted on Instagram.

 @rrolly: instagram is chill, what’s not chill is allocating the small amount of female sponsorship funds in the industry to whoever pleases the superficial male the best on the gram.

 Its only the second year of doing this and most of the lines would have won the first few Rampages. The progression is so accelerated. Also Vinny's whips are real good

 I didn't know this was going on. My GF is a new rider (from ultra running) and we were thinking about going out to SW Utah this weekend for her birthday.

 Waiting for fest to put some more controversy on this freeride event. Maybe that would light up the pb comment section. Wink
