The Trek Dirt Series is designed to help riders of all experience levels, particularly women, take their cross-country, downhill and freeride skills to the next level. The Trek Dirt Series will travel to 13 locations throughout Western Canada and the U.S. providing locale-specific beginner, intermediate and advanced instruction at each weekend-long camp. Complete schedules and registration information can be found at

"I'm beyond excited to partner with Trek for a second year in a row," remarked Whistler-based Dirt Series camp founder Candace Shadley. "With Trek's support, we've added two new locations—Portland, Oregon, and Winter Park, Colorado—to our camp schedule and have assembled a truly remarkable group of professional instructors."

In its eleventh year of existence, the Trek Dirt Series delivers top-notch instruction with the goal of developing skills through a supportive, step-by-step process that helps riders progress and move beyond their fears to fully enjoy the fun of mountain biking. Over 7,000 riders, both male and female, have pedaled through the program since its inception in 2001.

In addition to the Trek Dirt Series clinics, the Trek Women Demo Team will be on hand at every camp in 2011 for those who want to try different bikes.

Online registration for all Trek Dirt Series events opens February 1st at Interested parties are encouraged to register for their desired date and location sooner rather than later as camps have historically filled up fast.

Female cyclists are invited to interact with Trek Women online at and on the Trek Women Facebook page at
