Liv to Host Women’s Only Trail Session at Crankworx Whistler
August 10, 2018
Exclusive access to the iconic A-Line trail, Liv demo bikes and a chance to win a Liv mountain bike
WHISTLER, Canada (Aug. 10, 2018) – Liv Cycling, the company dedicated to getting more women on bikes, along with Crankworx Whistler, are proud to host the Liv Women’s Only A-Line Session on Sunday, August 12. That same morning, Liv Canada will also offer demo of the Liv Hail Advanced, the first truly women’s-specific 160mm enduro bike.
The Women’s Only A-Line Session was designed to bring women together for a freeride shred session on A-Line, a 1,200 vertical-foot flowy jump trail featuring masterfully sculpted berm turns, jumps and tables that is recognized as one of the most iconic flow trails in the world. Participants will have access to bike park coaches for tips, tricks and guidance on how to approach more challenging sections of the trail, and will ride alongside Liv ambassadors Katie Holden, Lindsey Richter and Leigh Donovan, as well as Liv Cycling staff.
“Liv Canada is honored to bring together women from around the globe for this world-class event,” said Amalie Gunn, Liv Brand Specialist, Canada. “The Liv A-Line Session is one of the largest women’s-only bike park events in North America. Together with Crankworx we are stoked to hit the trails for what’s sure to be an epic day.”
In a no pressure environment, women and girls will have the opportunity to take their skills to the next level, or just have fun with friends with the added comfort of A-Line being closed to the public. SRAM has also partnered to offer technical assistance to participants at the entrance to A-Line.
Following the event, participants are invited to the GLC for après and giveaways. All participants will be included in a drawing with an opportunity to win a Liv mountain bike.
