Be inspired by the example of Sabra Davison as she builds confidence in our youth those the sport of cycling.

Growing up Sabra was always in friendly competition with her sister, Olympian Lea Davison. Whether it was sidewalk chalk, swimming lessons, or junior competitions everything was a race. As young female competitors, they developed an amazing bond amongst female athletes that they’re continuing to grow today. Take a look behind the movement with the latest in our Role Model series.

 Love this stuff. We need more press on the Sweetlines team as well. Their model and racing program is pretty dang amazing for new girls and semi-pro kiddies who fly in the DH races

 We should do an entire article on Kat and her team, that's a great idea! I have a backstory about the time she found my little girl who was lost on her bike in the woods. She dropped everything and found her. (this is the very abbreviated version).

 This is super cool, I have a friend that was looking to ride with more women in the Nor Cal area and pointed her to mtbexp.com. Via Jenn Bolts she has met a few lady riders to ride with and is really excited! More women on bikes is a great thing!

 I think there's more women than men who MTB round these parts. We really need some male ambassadors or role models to encourage more young men to get into riding.
