Earlier this year, three of our athletes had the pleasure of taking part in Red Bull Formation - a week long event set in the heart of the Utah desert. Louise Anna, Harriet Burbidge-Smith and Vinny Armstrong set out amongst the red rock, desert heat & with an incredible group of women freeriders to conquer heights and fears alike. The best part? They made their own lines.

Formation build upon the massive start to the year for the women's freeride movement across the world. We've been so honored to have been able to have a stake in such a huge event, alongside our All Time Ride Camp that took place earlier this year.
We had a word with ilabb athlete Louise Anna-Ferguson about her experience.
"[Formation] blew my mind. Such a sick place to ride bikes and the women there really inspired me. It's cool to see the progression of freeride and what's possible with the right environment. Shout out to Vinny spraining her ankle and still crushing her full run, that was epic pal."
