To continue to expand on these successes requires more great staff, and that’s why Evergreen has created a NEW position of Operations Manager to keep things running smoothly; this is an important leadership role at an exciting time!

Last month Evergreen MTB had the opportunity to host an Americorps National Civilian Conservations Corps (NCCC) crew for three weeks. The 7-person crew, ranging in age from 19 – 25 years old, had spent almost 10 months prior working together on projects ranging from conservation work to assisting homeless populations. But working with Evergreen was their first introduction to trail work, the mountain bike community—and for most of them it was their first time mountain biking!

A lot happened on Tiger Mountain last month. Timber harvesting, trail work, and—most excitingly—the Sturdy B’s put on their first Tiger Mt. Sturdy Dirty Enduro! The popular all-women riding event not only sold out (again!), but also held the distinction of being the first to allow expert and pro participants to run the new Tiger descent trail.  Boasting nearly 230 participants, the 2015 Sturdy Dirty has flown into its second year with enormous momentum. The Sturdy Dirty is the brainchild of the 6-year-old Sturdy B all-woman racing team, and offers the chance for women riders of all abilities to race an all-female field. Combining the popular event with Tiger Mountain, a local favorite, the Sturdy B’s held the race in Issaquah at the invitation of Evergreen Mountain Bike Alliance.
