Why Sugar Show­down? “I’ve been moun­tain bik­ing for a cou­ple years. I’ve been tak­ing some classes with Kat (Sweet) and wanted to keep im­prov­ing and grow­ing as a rider.” Goal: “Get some mad skillz! I’m try­ing to get more con­trol in the air.” Is there some­thing spe­cial about be­ing in an all-fe­male en­vi­ron­ment? “I find that women tend to need sim­i­lar things as far as in­struc­tion . . . My hus­band’s favourite thing is to tell me to go faster and it doesn’t work like that. It’s re­ally nice be­cause it’s sup­port­ive and it’s okay to ask ques­tions and an­a­lyze things.”
