Phew, summer of 2023 has been a whirlwind. VNTRbirds started out hot with the purchase of VIDA MTB Series in early March to set us up for a massive mountain bike season. With the merge of these two companies came more clinics, more locations, more coaches, and the most stoke!

Here is what she had to say about her experience:
