About Mountain Moxies and the Moxie Sparks Program:

Mountain Moxie is Vermont’s women’s mountain bike race team with a mission to:
* Learn about ourselves and our environment through the pursuit of sport;
* Find camaraderie around and direct support for riding, training and racing;
* Support women’s access to and participation in the sport of mountain biking; and,
* Hone technical skills, race well and contribute to the greater mountain bike community.
In the team’s second year, a collaboration between Mountain Moxie, Little Bellas and the Stride Foundation led to the creation of Moxie Sparks, a mountain bike mentoring program for girls. Two girls experienced a summer of mountain biking in 2012 – from gearing up to technical skill building and personal empowerment, as well as whetting their whistle for the race start (and finish) line.
Sugarbush, Onion River Sports/Muscles Not Motors, Skirack and the Vermont Natural Resources Council sponsored Moxie Sparks, a package which included podium incentives for Mountain Moxie members. The 23-member team competed in over 30 races and rides across New England (and even as far as Idaho, North Carolina and South Africa), accomplishing 26 podium finishes, which raised $1,150 for Moxie Sparks.
