Girls On Track - What Did You Miss?


The Girls On Track event took place on 24th & 25th August at Les Angles resort in the Pyrénées. Alongside MTB Les Angles, the local mountain bike club headed up by rider Alexia Ministrot, we shared a girls weekend full of shred! With the exception of our very masculine mechanic Alban, the staff were 100% female.
Cindy, Janet and Léa from Marketing plus Rosi from the Web department were on-hand to enjoy the event.

In France as in other countries, whilst the female riding community is far from as strong as the mens, girls who ride are not uncommon.
This event was an example of that passion with about forty female participants!

More established riders or beginners, everyone enjoyed sharing their experiences on the bikes, during mechanics workshop sessions and also evening activities organised for the occasion. If the subject of shopping was still on everyone’s lips, it wasn't shoes or handbags that were being discussed this time..
DAKINE, one of our partners, gave everyone a beautiful mechanics apron so there’s no excuse now girls!
 
Anne Caroline Chausson who's recently returned to bike, came along to provide her good vibes and expert advice on all things MTB.
It was a real pleasure to have her with us and FYI, she’s still got those skills behind the bars! :) 


The concept of the event was simple. With a card registration system, each woman had the opportunity to sign-in for Saturday, Sunday or both. A package with or without accommodation and with every registration we provided breakfast, lunch and Saturday evening out for the girls. There was also optional bike hire and lessons, managed directly by local shops and the local mountain bike school. It was a perfect formula for a stress-free weekend of riding where fun was top of the priority list!

On Saturday afternoon we held Dual Slalom, open to all.
There were no less than 50 participants including a dozen girls who were in the midst of the fight for the title. Despite some crashes, it was a more than positive balance of the sexes. At this point, we must wish a speedy recovery to our weekend stuntwomen Marion and Viktoria...

If you missed it, you missed out! We’ll take away good memories with those who got involved. All that remains is to set a new date for next year. See you there!
