Watch: Epic Lady Train Sends it on Whistler’s A-Line

Five years ago Liv Cycling and Crankworx noticed something troubling; there weren’t many women hitting A-Line. It’s one of the most hyped trails in downhill riding, but due to the jumps and the intensity of the riders—it’s also one of the most intimidating. So, Liv had a wild idea: let’s shut it down just for the girls.  This resulted in one of the most beloved and popular events for women in the industry, in which they can try A-Line for three hours with confidence and support.
