MEET YOUR COACHES:
Tara has been mountain biking for 25 years, and has devoted her life to growing the sport and helping increase opportunities for riders, specifically in the all-mountain, or “enduro” discipline. Tara is a PMBIA Certified Coach, and a Head Coach for Ladies Allride with Lindsey Richter, traveling to Montana and Wyoming in the summers to help spread the stoke to ladies in this sport. Tara is a founding member and current president of TORCA (Tucson Off-Road Cyclists & Activists), and owner of Home Grown MTB Tours, a guiding, coaching, shuttle, and rental company. Tara’s first love is downhill, and riding fast and challenging terrain is where she finds her flow.
Growing up riding dirt bikes on technical desert single track, Stefanie is no stranger to two wheels. After picking up mountain biking in 2015 and entering her first race in the fall of 2017, she’s quickly made a name for herself in Professional Enduro Racing. Stefanie is the current 2-time Arizona and Nevada state Enduro champion, and most recently 3rd overall Pro Woman in the 2019 Big Mountain Enduro Series. Riding for the US Factory Pivot Cycles Enduro Team, Stefanie is looking forward to continuing to rise up the ranks in the coming years. She owes much of her success on the bike to continued quality professional instruction. Her passion for learning and practice has grown into teaching others how to progress safely and become more confident and skilled riders. As a PMBIA Certified Instructor, Stefanie is excited to pass her stoke for bikes onto her future students!
**PLEASE NOTE: HG believes a well-rounded athlete benefits from the perspective of both male and female coaching. While this clinic is focused on the ladies, HG will utilize it’s professional male coaches to provide coaching assistance and mechanical support.
