Today is going to be one of those days where I posit the question that we may not be able to answer. Why don’t more women race?

I’ve always wondered about this but racing the Big Mountain Enduro really brought it home. Why aren’t there just as many girls racing (period) and why aren’t there just as many girls racing enduro. Why is it that we have women physicists, women senators and women urologists but we can’t match the boys out at short track?

This year, the ride, the festival, the sisterhood, and the inspiration will be back and bigger than ever.

There’s this great line in a song by Phillip Phillips. It goes like this; “Hold my head up just to keep it clear. I want a chance to face my fear, face my fear.” That pretty much sums up the Big Mountain Enduro for me. I signed up not really thinking too much about the fact that I would A) have to ride up the chair lift multiple times and B) that I would scare myself like I did and C) that I would make such cool new women friends.
