Gravity Girls is a women’s specific mountain bike clinic designed to offer girls a non-intimidating introduction to downhill riding in Thredbo Resort. The clinic will suit riders of all abilities with the aim to progressively improve their skills throughout the day.
World cup racers Tegan Molloy and Claire Whiteman will be on hand as head coaches, ensuring the girls are on point when it comes to downhill techniques. The day will cover all aspects of riding including body position, cornering, braking, drops and jumps in a group environment.
The vast variety of terrain in Thredbo will no doubt give the girls plenty of trails to progress on with the new All Mountain Trail, Flow Trail, Cannonball Downhill and Skills Park all on offer. This is a great way to meet other riders and build confidence on the mountain in an encouraging all female environment. Participants will also receive a discounted lunch + free drink thanks to the Thredbo Alpine Hotel.
