Last week, while running some errands in the Hollywood area, I came across this pickup. Naturally I started taking some photos and a few minutes later, two ladies walked up. Turns out the truck (and trailer) was being driven by Candace Shadley and none other than former NORBA Downhill Champion Lisa Sher.
Candace and Lisa are on a West Coast tour of women’s-only mountain bike skills camps called the Sugoi Dirt Series. Sponsored by Sugoi and Rocky Mountain Bicycles, these camps teach ladies how to tackle singletrack, jumps, and obstacles with style and confidence.
To prepare for the Dirt Camps, Amy Wantulok from the Bike Gallery is running a series of mountain bike rides. Amy was an elite mountain bike racer back in the day and she attended Dirt Camp last year. She has a passion to help women improve their skills and to foster the mountain bike community:

“I attended the Whistler Camp last fall and fell in love with the freeriding and the North Shore of Vancouver. I travel to Canada to stay with my buddies- Lisa, and Candace as much as I can! I was super psyched to see all of the amazing riding some of girls were doing up in Vancouver, and wondered why we can’t do it here. So this is a little step in that direction.”
To sign up for the camp or to learn more about the pre-camp rides contact Amy at firstname.lastname@example.org or (503) 281-9800.
