Flow MTB Race Team #flowriders

 

Flow MTB are supporting a team of female riders from around the UK who’ll be racing at downhill, enduro and 4X events throughout the 2018 race season.

The women’s MTB race scene has always been friendly and welcoming and our vision for these riders is to encourage more women into mountain biking and promote female participation at MTB races; we see them as ambassadors for the sport and an inspiration to other female riders.

You can follow their progress throughout the 2018 race season here.
