I first met Tammy Donahugh at Ranchstyle 2011, the only woman to fly solo to the podium, over giant slope style jumps. One year later, over 30 women eagerly traveled thousands of miles to ride with Tammy and four other PRO women coaches, on an intro slope style course designed with the attitude, "if we build it, they will come". Kudos to Matt Bollig, Grassroots Cycles of Grand Junction, CO., to have the foresight & vision to create a world class event that grows larger each year. Professional women from ages 20 to 50's, eager to learn the basics of the pump track, bunny-hops, bridges, roll-ins and the next logical step of speed and grabbing air, spending 3 days sharing skills and words that women resonate with, expanding their limitations & confidence.
Girls PLAY well with others, FLOURISH in supportive environments, LIVE up to the challenge, and LOVE booty flattering, stylish gear. They no longer wear their boyfriends riding shorts! Generous sponsorships were made by IXS helmets, Native Eyewear, Kali, Teva, Truvativ, Deity, SuperCo, Rock Shox, Sram, Shimano, IMBA, Crave Jewelry, Muddbunnies, Sweet Lines, Shine Riders, Bodyarmor Sports Drink ... to name only a few.... they know that girls TALK and SHARE, spreading words like a torch in the dry grass. Wanna get hot ? .... Dixie Trix is coming near you !
