Women’s Weekend at Angel Fire Bike Park

July 10 and 11, 2021


HG is stoked to present…

The first annual Women’s Weekend at Angel Fire Bike Park! HG and it’s talented coaches will host two days of lift-access riding at one of the best bike parks in the country in Angel Fire, New Mexico. Riders will enjoy guided runs down some the most fun trails anywhere, with professional instruction and coaching along the way.

HG will have at least two coaches for a group of no more than 10 riders, with multiple lift-accessed runs throughout the day to maximize trail time. Topics covered will include:

*Keeping speed and traction through corners and berms

*Learning to “get air” with drops and jumps, and the fundamental mechanics necessary to land safely

*Bike park culture and etiquette

*Line selection and technical, steep descending

*Finding the flow required to ride fast downhill


Prerequisites:  All riders should be “strong-beginner/intermediate” with some exposure to technical, downhill trails. A full-suspension bike with a dropper seat post is required. Full-face helmets and protective gear are also recommended. WANT TO RENT A BIKE? Angel Fire Resort has a full bike shop, with downhill and trail bikes available for rent at 20% off for clinic attendees. 

So grab your lady crew and sign up today!

Tara Alcantara

With over 25 years in the sport, Tara has dedicated her life to MTB, and feels most at home on gravity-fed trails. As a PMBIA Certified Coach, Tara has an exceptional knack for pushing riders to help them break free of their self-imposed limitations. Using a logical approach versus a fear based approach, Tara helps her students develop the skills required to make solid decisions on the trail. As one of the very first of only a couple female riders on her home mountain, Mt Lemmon, she often chased some of Tucson’s fastest riders down technical, fast trails. Tara started a Tucson based shuttle, rental, and guiding company called Home Grown MTB in 2016. She has become a resource for locals and tourists alike, looking to experience the big mountain riding and exhilarating backcountry trails of the Sonoran Desert. She is also a founding member and past President of TORCA (Tucson Off-Road Cyclists & Activists), with thousands of hours of volunteer work slinging dirt and rock to make the trails better for everyone. Tara has coached MTB professionally for the past 5+ years, traveling the country working for some of the biggest names in the industry.

Joanna Yates
After coaching full time at Snowshoe Bike Park in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia, Joanna packed up and moved to the ledgy red-rock-mecca of Sedona. Riding in the rugged West Virginia terrain pushed her out of her comfort zone and eventually allowed her to transition from fearing technical terrain to seeking it.
Nowadays, Joanna feels right at home on the rocky, steep Sedona trails.  When instructing, Joanna encourages her students to push their own comfort zones and helps riders to build a strong mental mindset, a key to successful shredding.
Joanna’s coaching style focuses on powerful guidance, technical knowledge and strong structure. She builds confidence in her students by focusing on practice, commitment and FUN. It is a proven fact that it is impossible to ride bikes with Joanna and not be smiling.
She currently holds her Level 2 Terra Method IDP certification and is working towards her BICP Level 3 Instructor Trainer Certification. She visits further training courses yearly and gets coaching monthly, because for her, lack of learning is regression.
Joanna has been coaching professionally for the past 6 years, and has helped hundreds of clients reach their full potential on the bike.


Stefanie McDaniel

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.
