Dixie Trix went off this year thanks to Tammy Donahugh! We had 34 ladies show up for the weekend! 26 boosted their skills in the classes taught by 8 pro coaches; Tammy D., Lisa (Myklak) Tharp, Gale Dahlager, Lindsey Voreis, Lindsay Currier, Sam, Wendy Palmer, and me. 20 competed (11 in the Amateur class and 9 in Pro). Tammy rounded up at least $5000 in prizes and the top 3 Pros walked away with money. More importantly the ladies pushed our riding to the next level in a supportive and fun environment, building the sisterhood of shred.
Thanks to all of the companies that stand behind the Womenâ€™s Freeride Movement; Superco, MuddBunnies, Deity, Sram, Teva, Native Eyewear, IMBA, Body Armor, Somersaults, and Crave Jewelry. Thanks to Ranchstyle for hosting the ladies and building us a super fun course and maintaining it all weekend; Matt, James, Justin, Jimmy, Nick, and Jeff. Iâ€™m seriously looking forward to Sugar Showdown and Queen of the Mountain.
