Patricia Druwen (GER), she leads the FMB world ranking. Carolin Buchanan (AUS), she is second in the world rankings. The multiple BMX and Four-Cross World Champion has won almost everything
and was the first woman to stand the front flip.
Kathi Kuypers (GER), fifth in the FMB ranking, feels just as comfortable on the dirt jumper as she does on the big bike.
Gemma Corbera (ESP) is the first female mountain biker in Europe to show a backflip over dirt jumps and compete on the FMB World Tour.
Elli Chew (NZL) recently toured the world with the Nitro Circus, showing off her BMX skills at the Olympics and the X-Games. Now she is also proving herself on the
