Join the dirtgirls in Morzine this summer


 

Flowmtb’s dirtgirls week is going into its fifth year of girl only biking trips in the Alps and this year the dates are 14-21st August 2010.  BikeEnvy has teamed up with dirtgirls, so we'll be there to report on all the action.  We've been before and it's seriously good fun/riding/food, in the presence of some great company too.

The rider’s week is aimed at regular bikers who want a holiday riding great trails with other women, and getting some coaching along the way. Jo, a fully qualified French guide and the instructor who coached the 2009 dirtgirls (and the French youth DH team!) will be running the skills sessions. Riders will get to learn skills such as cornering, rocks, skids, jumps and drops, and steep sections, plus there'll be time for ice cream and coffee stops too. Mountain girl Ulrika will be guiding again this year; not only is she fast on a bike, she can tell you the name of every flower, tree and animal you pass – and usually an interesting fact about it too!

 

 

Flowmtb owner Sara, will be riding each day too, and original dirtgirl coach and DH racer Emily Horridge should be along on some rides too. Expect a mixture of short coaching sessions on trails, and long days out on the amazing Alpine singletrack.

 

 

Accommodation is in Chalet Snion, a beautiful newly renovated chalet with a large sun terrace for relaxing on and a sauna to ease your aching muscles. Dirtgirls return from riding to a freshly baked cake or cookies. Evenings are spent relaxing with a glass of wine and a hearty three course meal, or hitting the local bars. In male dominated Morzine, dirtgirls always make an impression!

This year Minx will not only be providing end of week prizes, but is offering all 2010 dirtgirls a discount on pre-trip purchases, so they can get ready to hit the trails in style!
