Sugar Showdown Santa Cruz + Co-Ed Clinics

Sugar Showdown Santa Cruz

Sweetlines is proud to announce Sugar Showdown Santa Cruz as part of the Santa Cruz Mountain Bike Festival presented by FOX and Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz. This two day event for the ladies includes a day of skills coaching followed by a day of competition. Skills focus on dirt jumping, pumping, railing berms, and tricks. Lisa Tharp built us a brand new beginner line at the infamous Post Office dirt jumps, including a steezy trick step up. The comp—open to all amateur and pro women—is a fun way for clinic participants and other amateur riders to push their limits to the next level, as well as an excellent opportunity to showcase the top pros, inspiring women to follow their lead.

Bring a dirt jump style bike with flat pedals and skate style shoes. Helmets are mandatory and pads recommended.

Minimum 1 year mountain biking experience required. Check out the Sugar Showdown Santa Cruz page for more information.
