bigquotesWhen it comes to ones to watch, few riders out there are as exciting as eight-time Australian BMX Champion and two-time amateur BMX World Champ winner Harriet Burbidge-Smith. At 25, she’s a double threat, having excelled in BMX racing before making the switch to mountain bike, which she says offers her more creativity, freedom and opportunities to stay stoked on her sport.

What’s more, Burbidge-Smith is a die-hard ambassador for women and girls in biking, running female-only training camps and never missing an opportunity to uplift her fellow female riders who are bringing the gnar. This May she joins the third edition of Red Bull Formation, as she makes the trip to the deserts of Utah for a week-long women’s freeride event.

 Mega thanks to Harriet for being instrumental in getting jumps built here in Canberra, including a sanctioned, progressive set (from humps and tables to proper steep DJs) at our oldest riding area, Majura, plus a massive line elsewhere (IYK,YK). The shovel in her hand isn't just for show for this edit - she's been digging for years.

 So she has a BMX background, and that bike looks a lot like a Session. This is the Pinkbike comment section cliche edit. All we need to slap on is an engineer and a dentist.

 Sweet vid. Maydena is the TITS. There's lots of amazing riding in BC and the US and NZ and the Alps but the highest density of stupidly rad trails is at Maydena.

 Why always BMX Background?

 Because handling tiny wheels is hard so it builds skills but it's relatively cheap and accessible.
