Anka Martin, Kelli Emmett and Sarah Leishman are the three riders involved. Gravity racer and long-time mountain-bike adventurer Anka Martin has been with Juliana since 2013, Kelli Emmett is an experienced racer in a variety of stripes, and Sarah Leishman is a Whistler-based enduro and downhill racer.

Here’s a quick introductory video:

“It’s incredible to see how excited and motivated our partners are to support a women’s cycling team,” said Juli Furtado, founder of Juliana Bicycles and former World title holder in both XC and DH. “Anka, Kelli, and Sarah are going to do us all proud at the Enduro World Series and look set to have a great time doing it… I’m quite envious that nothing like this existed in my day, to be honest!”
