Liv Brings Women’s Only A-Line Session Back to Crankworx Whistler
July 20, 2022
First 150 women to register get exclusive access to the legendary downhill trail
WHISTLER, Canada (July 20, 2022) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, Liv, the company dedicated to getting more women on bikes, has again partnered with Crankworx Whistler to bring the Liv Women’s Only A-Line Session back to the event on Sunday, August 7. The following day, Liv will host Liv Racing Day, a social ride on the Lost Lake Trails led by Liv Global Ambassadors Lindsey Richter and Anita Naidu and an autograph session with Liv Racing professional athletes.
The Liv Women’s Only A-Line Session was started 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. In addition, SRAM will host a hydration and tech station for participants at the entrance to A-Line.
This session offers a no pressure environment for women to take their skills to the next level or just have fun with friends on a trail that is closed to the public. Following the event, participants are invited to Black’s Pub for apres and giveaways. All participants will be included in a drawing with an opportunity to win a Liv Intrigue.
