Female Riders Race Team 2017 Line-Up
Female Riders Race Team is a girls' cross-country (XC), downhill (DH) and enduro mountain biking (MTB) team launched in 2016 to promote, support and assist a talented group of up-and-coming female riders to race competitively in the UK and worldwide.
We want to enhance the buzz around the growing female mtb racing scene and look to bridge the gap between the top elite riders and the rest of the pack.
Our long-term aim is to grow the youth-side of the team to create a development platform to grow skills & enthusiasm for racing.
