Why Sugar Show­down? “This is my third time here.”

How have you pro­gressed since start­ing to come to Sugar Show­down? “I used to be deathly afraid of drops and I’m not as bad at them. (Point­ing at drops) I’m ex­cited about this part. Be­fore, this was ter­ri­fy­ing to me. When I would hit jumps I would maybe get my front tire off and not the back, but now I’m get­ting both off and land­ing safely.”

Goal: “I want to get more air when I jump higher, and I want to be faster so I can get higher on the wall-ride.”

Is there some­thing spe­cial about be­ing in an allfe­male en­vi­ron­ment? “Yeah! I don’t know if I can say what it is, but it’s awe­some be­ing around all women . . . Be­ing here with all th­ese women it’s so inspiring to see peo­ple that are so much bet­ter than me and peo­ple at the spot where I was last year. It’s neat to see peo­ple progress.”
