GRASSROOTS CYCLES, Ranch Style, CO set the pace this year and sparked sponsors' interest in the upcoming women's specific gravity biking events this July-August in Seattle & Mammoth, Calif. Career women are amping up their skills, buying dirt jumpers and DH bikes and asking how to jump higher, and add "trix" with style. Girls talk and the word is out ... they no longer are riding their boyfriends bike, and are all about women's specific armor, asking for comfy brands, that flatter their curves and keep their feminine essence alive. All ages and all skill levels are showing up to the riding parks, eager to learn and network. While Johnny is at home on the play station, mom is kicking up her tires!
