BMX LADIES COMPETITION
PASSION IS AN ENDLESS FUEL
Our goal is to help develop the female BMX Flatland scene, push forward the progression of our community, and to shine some light on female riders with a BMX Flatland competition - "FlatQueens"! The ladies and girls will be given the opportunity to compete in one of 3 different classes (Pro, Amateur and New Generation). The aim is to showcase the passion we have for this sport and how much we embrace each other. In times like these, it's even more important to stick together and enjoy what we love.
Let's be the change and do this together - it's time!
Who are we?
Two motivated ladies riding and embracing BMX Flatland with over 30 years of experience combined! Paula Hesser is from Canada and Irina Sadovnik is from Austria.
Paula, mother of two small girls, is the founder of “Rad Girls BMX.” In 2012 Rad Girls was the first edit to showcase all female flatland riders with the purpose to provide a sense of community, since it is literally spread across the globe. Rad Girls BMX is still going strong today, with 10 edits and counting. Paula is hoping to compete in her first UCI event in the Women’s Pro Class this September in Montpellier!
Irina is a 2 time UCI World Champion (2019, 2021) and the first UEC European Champion! While riding since 2002 and being strongly engaged in the BMX community ever since, she also completed her PhD in medical science. When she is not riding, Irina works in cancer research with the aim to characterize leukemic stem cells. In addition she helps to raise awareness against skin cancer as an ambassador for "spot the dot" (#fasterthanskincancer) and supports Austrian charity events.
With the same interests and goals for flatland BMX, it was only natural for these two ladies to come together and bring you the first ever BMX Flatland Competition, by women for women and girls!
Be a part of history in the making and join the party and have fun!
