This is a huge year for downhill skateboarding!  We are only steps away from Olympic dreams, with the first step being the World Roller Games in Barcelona, Spain!  With the recognition of our sport and inclusion in this prestigious event, the USA has announced its national women's team!

USA women's downhill skateboarding team is so excited to have the honor to represent at the World Roller Games in Barcelona 2019, but we need YOUR help to make it there!

With the announcement of this privilege coming only a couple of months out, the USA Women's team is seeking financial assistance now on our way to Spain!  

The money will go towards our flights, entry fees, team leathers, and accommodation.  We want to make sure our team makes it out to this event to properly represent the USA!  The more funds we make, the closer we can get towards making sure each woman gets to the event! From there we can move towards team leather suits, helmets, other gear and the chance to continue on to more events!
The funds are needed within the next couple of weeks so we can secure enough time to arrange our flights, entries, and accommodation.   This is a last minute ordeal, but with your help, WE WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Our team is comprised of the most hard-working, strong, and inspirational women in downhill skateboarding.  

Meet the team:
Emily is the most dominant female force in the WORLD.  She has taken the crown for top Women internationally 3 years running, undefeated! AND she dominates against the boys, scoring top 10 in the world for the past two years and counting!  She is one of the hardest working, most skilled skateboarders in the downhill scene today and she has continued plans for domination.  Nothing will stand in her way as she fights to win every race, versus the guys and the gals.

Rachel, or Bagels as she is called, is known for her upbeat attitude and big smile.  She has been competing on the world circuit for 5 years and has accomplished 2nd and 3rd place world titles among many other first places and podium finishes.   Her love of riding has taken her all over the globe, chasing competition and the love and thrill of skating.  She is a driving force behind the skate community, on and off her board, bringing inspiration and encouragement through her videos, social media, and natural positive energy.  But don't let her smile fool you, she is a tough competitor that will fight to win!

Teresa is a 21 year old cultural anthropology student at UCLA in California.  She has been skating for many years but began her journey into the race scene in 2018.  Ever since she started racing, she has been a force in the women's scene, progressing as quickly as she skates.  She is currently traveling the world chasing the IDF tour, conquering all race tracks and competition she comes across!

JULIA BARKLOW39044274_1557194507495676_r.jpeg
Julia is what we'd call the face of stoke.  She is a 25-year mapping professional born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Once she realized her passion for downhill skateboarding, she became obsessed with skating and learned about traveling the world for international races. Within the first two years of learning to downhill skateboard, she gained sponsorship with local companies and bought registration to races in Australia and New Zealand, Whistler, and the USA.  She has since traveled to over 15 countries and competed in events in Australia-Asia, North America, and Europe, meeting roads and skaters of all different backgrounds.  She has taken on the world tour with strong finishes and always a positive vibe.  She is ecstatic about the opportunity to represent the USA in Barcelona!

39044274_1557194704233152_r.jpegCandy is one of the most motivational women in our sport. When she was competing, she was a huge force, ranking 2nd in the USA in 2016 and 5th in the world in 2017.  Last year, she got into an accident that left her paralyzed.  She has battled and come back from many doctors thinking she'd never walk again to having mobility and working hard every day to regain what she can.  She plans to keep riding, however she can, whether it comes the day she can stand up again, or she is inventing her own forms of hybrid boards to get her out there.  She won't be racing with us this year in Barcelona, but she will be there supporting the USA and her fellow teammates!
