Freeride is a popular discipline within mountain biking. It involves riding the most creative line possible with style, control, speed and magnitude. Hangtime is a women's freeride event comparable only to Casey Brown's Dark Horse or Redbull Formation (both of which are women led and have female athletes that are invite only). These events are taking the freeride industry by storm and helping to bring more women into the sport. Hangtime was held the evening of October 1st, 2022 on the Blue Steel jumpline at Galbraith Mountain in Bellingham, Washington. This event is the brainchild of Hannah Bergemann and is presented by Transition Bikes and Redbull. I attended simply to spectate and to capture the awe-inspiring event that was being held a mere two miles from my house.
Community is everything.
A huge thanks is owed to the WMBC, Transition bikes, Hannah, and the entire community as a whole for believing in the sport of MTB and for supporting the trails!
