Come join an AMAZING community of women at the Sugar Showdown as we empower each other while we build our jump and drop skills at infamous Duthie Hill Mountain Bike Park!

Find inspiration and progression together with some of the best coaches from around the world at this weekend workshop designed to build and sharpen proper techniques. Individualized clinics Saturday will be grouped based on ability and will target skills that will help you stay safe, smart, and aware on the dirt. This is what we call Adrenaline Zen! Instruction will focus on building competence and confidence in freeride skills, including fundamentals, line choice, amplitude, and style. On Sunday, participate in a fun, low-pressure competition focusing on ride style before joining in the rowdy raffle and awards ceremonies!

Sugar Showdown is open to women and anyone who identifies as female. The weekend offers something for everyone. We meet every rider where they are, from 6-year-old sweet peas to the best pro freeriders in the world. Come be a part of the sisterhood of shred with Sweetlines at the Sugar Showdown!

We are working towards a future where everyone, no matter their background, such as age, race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability, feels they too can learn to ride mountain bikes and be part of our community. We are always trying to improve our practice so please share your expertise, feedback, and comments with us.
