Stoked that we get to hear another from another fantastic athlete! Sara has been racing well over a decade and when you find a gem like Sara, you better be taking notes!
Though the industry is full of men that race, the women part of the industry is surely growing. And I am not surprised when you have great people like Sara at the front lines helping any way she can! It may seem difficult for a woman to get started, however, there are groups and coaches that are rising up and taking charge. If you are serious about wanting to learn how to ride, then follow the Sara's advice and start working with others. You will be glad you did.
Sponsorships are somewhat of a tricky thing. Or at least from the outside looking in they appear tricky. Fortunately when we have guests that understand what it takes to be sponsored then share that information to us, we may realize that maybe we became too anxious too early. Sponsors make riding soo much more affordable and you have to listen to Sara's experience with her first sponsorship.
