Crank Sister, Women’s Outreach Program for the MN League
Join Us – Let’s Get Girls Racing!
Our new outreach initiative, Crank Sisters, encourages high school girls to become racers and women to become coaches in the MN League. Through networking, knowledge sharing, scholarships, league and fee discounts, and coaching rebates, Crank Sisters will be the channel to overcoming fears, setting goals, and learning how racing and coaching in the MN League is both rewarding and the basis for a healthy lifestyle.
25% of our racers in 2012 were women.
Help us double that amount! Get involved as a coach, racer, or volunteer.
NEW – Summer CrankSisters MTB Skills Day Camps!
Learn basic mountain bike skills for beginner and intermediate riders. Crank Sisters Mountain Bike Skills Day Camps are open to girls only, no racing experience required. Student-athletes will be broken into groups according to their ability and past racing experience. No cost, but we do ask you to register!
On Sat. April 20, over 30 women of all ages, gathered for the first annual CrankSisters Race Day Training Program.
Thank you – Jenna Reinhart and Kyia Anderson, two of Minnesota’s local pro racers who came out to support the CrankSisters Race Day Training Program and to help get more women and girls racing and coaching…or just simply riding!
This unique event was designed for new and experienced mountain bike racers and riders who are interested in racing or joining a team. At the event, we offered a morning of bike racing skills led by Kyia and Jenna and then after lunch, Erik’s Bike Shop provided an excellent overview on basic bike maintenance skills to keep your bike running before, during and after a race.
