Oso Punchard, 19, from Nelson, BC is a long time downhill rider but new to the race track. This is her first year with the ride like a girl program and she wants to work on enhancing technique and pushing her boundaries even further. She has been partnered with her mentor Deb Mackillop and is very excited to have someone critique and help enhance her riding. She hopes to enter the race circuit this year and will use Deb’s guidance to get started in that. While riding Oso is always focused on pushing herself and her boundaries but she is also focused on enjoying the process and having as much fun as she can!
