Meet Louise Anna Ferguson

A native of Fort William, Louise now calls Queenstown home. Catch her down at Atlas Beer Cafe after bombing Grundy. Read a little about her and what inspires her. Louise joined the ilabb family this year, check her out at Crankworkx in November.

Favourite Trail/line?

My go-to trail to ride from the house is Grundy; it's fast, techy and spicy in the wet. Grundy always puts a smile on my face. 

Favourite Rider and why?

Heaps of riders inspire me especially some rad women! But probably my home slice Mikayla Parton, we went to school together and now she's rocking the world cup scene as a privateer and that takes some determination. 

Favourite piece of riding kit and why? 

You can't go wrong with Traverse pants. Since I had a tumble in Fort William and my knee pads got pulled down as I crashed. I rate riding pants for that added protection and just being all-round comfy as. 

Favourite post ride activity?

To cruise down to Atlas beer Cafe for a refreshing beverage.
