Mountain bike movies are fun, and they get you amped to ride, but it’s rare to see a woman riding in them. I know there are ladies out there who are killin’ it on their bikes, catching rad air, riding elevated skinnies, and pushing the envelope. And to be totally honest, nothing motivates me more than seeing a chick kicking butt on her bike. The fact that Mark Brent from Bones Over Metal had the vision to make an entire movie dedicated to the women of the sport completely stokes me out.
Dirt Divas from all over the Greater Seattle area and beyond are coming out to celebrate tonight at the world premier of Awesome Land Women of Dirt, which is showing all week at the North West Film Forum. There’s a girl posse from Bellingham driving down, and starlet, Tammy Donahugh is flying in from Colorado.
On Saturday, the ladies are getting together for an Awesome Land Jump Jam at Duthie Hill park, from 12 to 3 p.m., highlighting some of the amazing riders from the movie, including two of the best slope style riders in the US, Tammy Donahugh and Stephanie Nychka, along with local riders.
