 Thanks so much! Casey blew this one out of the park! So cool to see the ladies show up and never take no for an answer. It was always a very uplifting, supportive environment so all they had to do was play bikes.

 Mountain biking for four years and hitting stuff like this. How cool to start a sport so young and just crush it. I'm pretty pumped to see where the next gen goes. Thanks to Casey and Hannah and Katie, and Vero, and Lisa and Kat and all the women that are normalizing this type of stuff. It's definitely not for me, but I'm stoked it's an option for others.

 Thanks Lacy for your continued involvement and support within women’s mtb! You are for sure part of many many successful riders’ careers and lots of people can reminisce on a hilarious story or 5 with you xx

 "You roll in with just two pedal strokes"?

No, THEY roll in with just two pedal strokes. I don't roll anywhere feckin near it!

Also, can we all just acknowledge the magnificent Christina gun show!?

 I was going to note Christina's sick guns in my post but decided that commenting on a woman's physical appearance in this context might be inappropriate. But now that you went there- yeah, she rocks it!

 @Mlloyd550: I figure it's ok because I admire any human who is a good example of physical health. And I'll comment to/about any gender as long as I think (hope) that they take it in the respectful context I intend :-)

 Hahah yeah the slow drop in was really playing games with our heads. As for the “upper body strength”… I literally only rides bikes in the summer. No dumbbell routines for me. I can thank my Dad’s genetics there. Cheers for the compliment

 "All you have to do is fall outta the sky". No problem. I'm great at falling.

 Falling is easy. Landing though…

 @jojotherider1977: yep. It's not the fall that gets you. It's the floor.

 My 10-year old daughter just started jumping; this will be mandatory viewing after school today. The world needs more positivity like this video- great job Christina and PB.

 Than is so much! Schedule is full these days but there was no way I was missing being here to witness this session!! So happy it all together so nicely

 The camera lies sooo much for jumps, those are some huge jumps, I love the atmosphere of this event. I don't care what my daughter gets into as she grows up (bikes preferred), but the support and coming together you see at these kinds of events is what I wish for

 I thought, canada uses the metric system
  • 1 0
 We are so close to the states a lot of things are still imperial. Some things are actually CAD standards half metric / half imperial formulas for some things. It's weird.
