WOMEN SHRED presented by Arnicare, by Boiron

women shred presented by Arnicare, by Boiron is back!
As a celebration of women mountain bikers, the 3rd annual women shred event aims at championing female mountain bikers through rides and workshops.

After last year's successful event, women shred caters to the experienced mountain biker who is in for a new discovery or for the novice rider who wants to hone her skills. The annual event continues to be dedicated to the inclusion of women and mountain biking. This year we partnered up with the Women of OZ who will host a First touch to MTB workshop....

tickets to ride/race

First you meet at the festival area where you can pick up your goodie bag at the rider tent. Then you'll start in the women shred space with some balancing exercises, challenge you to ride over skinny beams (on the floor), master braking skills, learn to use your body and warm you up to go on the trails. And the fun part is that Anneke is not doing the workshops alone! She's bringing her friends Rachel Strait, another legend in the enduro circuit and Xylena Hoppen. Thanks to our partnership with LIV cycling you will also get the opportunity to meet and learn from another legend and women shredder Caroline Washam who will join Anneke on the trails. Now how's that for a line up?

These legends will take you on to the Slaughterpen trail system and will decide according to the skill of your group which berm, drop or any other technical difficulty you love to improve at.
To be a better rider, ride safer and have better control skill is key!
Women of OZ, who take care of the essentials and first touch to MTB will introduce you to Mountainbiking and host the beginner workshops, guided by certified coaches.

Don't let these World class riders scare you, they are all very approachable and patient teachers who will explain you everything they learned from riding bikes all over the world in the past 3 decades. Don't miss this opportunity!

THE WORKSHOPS

Start with the women of OZ' fundamental skills clinic for some mountain bike basics and then hit the trails for an introductory ride.
