PGR is an Alberta based cross country, enduro and downhill mountain biking race team that supports and promotes women in competitive sport. PGR was founded in 2014 and has grown significantly with the help of our past and current sponsors and supporters.
Our team consists of a range of female riders from obsessive recreationalists to national medalists, all brought together by their passion for continuous mountain biking skill development and personal growth. As a team we aim to build a network of women to support and inspire each other on and off their bikes.
While we've changed course a few times since inception, in 2019 we underwent a holistic organizational restructuring and visioning exercise to better guide our future direction as a team. As we honed in our focus to the southern Alberta region, we also shifted back towards where it all began - racing.
This year, and in years moving forward, we bring together strong female riders and advocates who are serious about building skill and confidence to race, who break down barriers of women in race, and who support each other and show camaraderie to fellow racers. Together with our sponsors and partners we invest our time in community activities and events that support this mandate.
