Great Season coaching with Jr Girls!


So much fun! Sometimes when we ride, we have to do 80's Style! Fun riding at Snowbowl

As I look back on this season of coaching and riding with the Jr Girls, I can't help but feel so much gratitude that these girls will ride single track with me. I make them ride up hill, re-do features, fix flat tires and they keep showing up.

Honestly, these teens are rock stars. We have so much fun. SO MUCH! Think of your best ever slumber party times 10 and on the mountain going fast.

Weekly rides were all over the Missoula area including The Rattlesnake, Blue Mountain, Patty Canyon, The Bitteroot Area, Snowbowl, Butte CDT and Discovery Ski Area.

Over and over I heard the girls state that the trails were getting easier than the last time they road them. They are progressing and it is a joy to be behind watch them slay it!
Elise always had a smile on trail!

This season we traveled to many new trails around Montana! Adventure outside of Butte Montana on the CDT

Awesome evening rides with the girls at Blue Mountain.
We did a tons of rides on Blue Mountain. Super fun with Alli, Hannah, Skye, Ellie, Hannah W and Baylee
