Video: Frida Rønning Wants to Make a Name for Herself & Race World Cup DH

Making the steps to become a top World Cup racer is definitely not easy. To be able to ride throughout the winter, Frida Rønning is a full time student working on an engineering degree in North Carolina. In the time between classes she trains and as seen here, rips her trail bike on a local trail.

The plan for 2019 is to make it to as many World Cups as possible and establish herself among the top 10.

 We need more support for the Women riders in DH. Monika almost not being able to race because she broke her bike is case in point. A top five racer having to scrounge her bike? That's insane. Anyone know if she's getting signed for next season?

 Isak and Frida are both super nice and can absolutely rip. Frida is without a doubt a top-ten World Cup downhiller. Good luck finding support to prove my claim!

 Agreed! I had the chance to ride and hang with them at Bailey Mountain in NC. Both are super down to earth and have some amazing skills. She is going to kick some ass next year!

 Always LOVE to see a Canfield bike getting shredded on. I hope next year I can cheer for her on all the WC races on redbull tv

 It's Rønning. They show it in the video for a millisecond.
Otherwise a very strange article. Zero information besides some sponsors. Howactly does she qualify to say she will establish as a top 10 WC contender. Maybe I'm living under a rock but I've never heard of her.

 @colincolin: She's been flirting with top 10 all sender! Additionally, she's a super positive ambassador for the sport.

 @colincolin: Frida is a natural ripper. She will prove her claim. Very humble, worthy rider... needs some next level sponsorship to add to the support from Canfield. However, she is the rider to take Canfield to the next level in the women's ranks.

 @colincolin: she already has a couple top 10 World Cup finishes and finished 8th at crankworx Innsbruck

 Good luck! Maybe give Vali Holl some competition! Unless going straight to the elites, always welcome more competition. Best wishes to you!
