Zander Lingelbach-Pierce from Bike Mag writes “In the past couple years, barriers have been shattered on the women’s side of freeride mountain biking. Just last month, women competed in Crankworx Slopestyle for the first time. Excitingly, the sport of BMX is following suit. Starting at X Games Ventura on June 27-30, Women will compete in BMX Park.”

“X Games as an event has not always shown up for our female athletes in the way they deserve,” Guglielmino told me. “This year, with the incredible support from our partners and our new ownership group, we are proud to introduce two new women’s events.” (The second new women’s event for Ventura 2024 is Women’s Skateboard Vert Best Trick.)

From X Games: We’re doubling down on our commitment to the progression of women’s sports, with the debut of Women’s BMX Park in Ventura as a medaled event. The field of invited riders will include several Olympians, including Team USA’s Hannah Roberts who earned silver at Tokyo 2020. Women’s Skateboard Vert Best Trick will also make its debut this year, giving 11-year old Reese Nelson another discipline to show off her wide bag of tricks.

“I’ve always dreamed of competing in X Games and it was never a possibility until this year,” Hannah Roberts said. “ Women and girls are bringing so much progression, creativity and energy into action sports across the board and it is exciting to see X Games continue to grow these sports for the next generation.” – Source: X Games
