SHINE RIDERS COMPANY

Womens Gravity Mountain Biking

WHAT ABOUT SHINE?

Shine was created in 2008 by rider Lindsay Beth Currier after a mountain biking accident in the Santa Cruz mountains. Shine's mission is to ILLUMINATE and INSPIRE female GRAVITY mountain bikers across the globe. GRAVITY mountain biking includes downhill, enduro, freeride, and any riding with an emphasis on descending and tackling challenging terrain.

SHINE'S GOALS ARE TO:
Increase global awareness and connection of current female gravity riders.
Cultivate a universal womens mountain biking community.
Encourage more women to safely participate in gravity mountain biking.
Advocate through participation for equal sponsorship & prize money for gravity racers regardless of gender.

SHINE'S PROGRAMS

Our PROGRAMS are mindfully created from years of experience, insight, and rider feedback with the intentions of meeting our goals and mission.

Technical Skills Coaching

Do you want to get into mountain biking but would like to avoid the pain of learning the hard way? Are you tackling harder terrain and bigger obstacles with nothing more than speed and courage? Mountain biking does not have to be hard or dangerous. Technical skills coaching can help you learn the easy way, and prevent many unnecessary accidents as you progress to more advanced terrain. Riders of ANY experience level can benefit from Shine's technical skills coaching with knowledgeable and encouraging coaches.

2015 California Enduro Series Round 5: Santa Cruz Super Enduro @ Soquel Demonstration Forest
Aug 8 – Aug 9 all-day
2015 California Enduro Series Round 5: Santa Cruz Super Enduro @ Soquel Demonstration Forest | Los Gatos | California | United States

Santa Cruz Super Enduro • TBD • Soquel Demonstration State Forest in the Santa Cruz Mountains

The wildly popular Santa Cruz Super Enduro, which has capped off the California Enduro Series for the past two years, will run midway through the series in 2015. This weekend-long event, presented by Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz as a fundraiser for local cycling projects, offers racing, riding and rad activities with an extra helping of rowdy good fun and camaraderie. Between racing some of the best trails in the Santa Cruz area and celebrating the spirit of Enduro back at camp, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Steve Gemelos, Event Director for the Santa Cruz Super Enduro in addition to CES, says, “The Santa Cruz Super Enduro was epic—physically challenging and technical. The best part was seeing all the stoked riders and smiles during and after the race. We are really looking forward to 2015.”

“Racing in my hometown at the Santa Cruz Super Enduro was definitely a highlight for me this year and I am very happy it’s on the schedule again for 2015,” says CES 2014 champion Lauren Gregg. “All the stops last season were super fun and I can’t wait to race them again, and I’m excited to ride the new venues.”

2015 California Enduro Series Round 6: Northstar Enduro @ Northstar California Resort | Truckee | California | United States

Northstar Enduro • Saturday & Sunday, August 29-30 • Northstar California Resort in Truckee

Northstar is upping the ante this year by expanding to a two day event, which means another multi-day race on the 2015 CES schedule. As one of the most prominent mountain bike parks, Northstar is the perfect location for an epic and memorable multi-day Enduro.

“Mountain bikers consistently rank our park among the best in the world,” says Northstar’s Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Bill Rock. “We are thrilled to take part in this series, providing us an opportunity to showcase our park to world class riders and allowing them to enjoy our unmatched views and trails.”

“Northstar was a great addition to the series last season and I’m thrilled to learn they are expanding to a two-day race for 2015,” says Jackie Swider, who took Pro Women first place at the 2014 event. “Last season’s event was a blast, ripping trails with friends in practice then cracking down to business the next day. Each of the stages offered challenges from berms, rocks, and off-camber sections to pedaling and jumps.”

2015 Pro GRT #5 – California Enduro Series Finale – Kamikaze Bike Games @ Mammoth Mountain
Sep 24 – Sep 27 all-day
2015 California Enduro Series Finale: Kamikaze Bike Games Enduro @ Mammoth Mountain | Mammoth Lakes | California | United States

Kamikaze Bike Games Enduro • Thursday-Sunday, September 24-27 • Mammoth Mountain in Mammoth Lakes

The Kamikaze Bike Games Enduro, a racer favorite for 2014, will cap off the 2015 series. With the Enduro being one aspect of a four day event featuring several types of races enjoyed by CES participants, the Kamikaze Bike Games is the perfect venue for the series finale.

Mammoth Mountain’s Senior Vice President Bill Cockroft says, “We are pleased once again to be a part of the Kamikaze Bike Games. We look forward to a huge event in 2015 after our very successful Enduro event last summer. Thank you CES for teaming up with us. We promise to crush it in September.”

Pro rider Jacob Dore—who took third overall for 2014—notes, “Mammoth really stands out from a Dad perspective—my son can’t wait until the next Kamikaze Bike Games! CES is amazing in that we can all connect on course and at the venues.”

PRO GRT DOWNHILL

Our builders at Mammoth Mountain Bike Park manipulated Mother Nature’s curves in 2001 to build Bullet DH for the Grundig World Cup. With big hits, bigger drops, and super technical sections, racers are required to bring their A-game and a lot of travel. Pros chasing USA Cycling points will let it all hang out on this supergnar course. And to make it even more interesting, the trail is going to receive a total facelift this summer!

DUAL SLALOM

Mountain bike trivia: when and where was the first MTB dual slalom? Right here at Mammoth Mountain. The brainchild of the hardcore cyclist, skier, and Mountain Bike Hall of Fame member, Bill Cockroft, who believed snow lovers shouldn’t have all the slalom fun.

The first race was dubbed the Dual Challenge and it went down in 1986. The name was changed to Dual Slalom in 1987 and the rest is history.

Spectator tip: don’t miss the finals on Saturday. This will be a spectator highlight of the weekend!

SUPPORT SAM: $15 for the raddest 15 year old gravity rider in 2015

While contemplating mountain bike goals and dreams and crunching numbers this winter, I realized if Sam’s going to go where she needs to go (EVERYWHERE), she is going to need some funding, and soon.  She’s quickly gone from 11 to 15 in the short time that I have known her, and before we all know […]
