Our Girls Can Rip

What started out as a bunch of boys playing in the dirt with their bikes has blossomed into an all-encompassing hobby, sport, pastime and profession for men and women of all ages. Female BMXers are now competing in the X Games, racing in the Olympics and taking their brand of BMX to the streets. This movement has spawned an entire subculture within BMX that features female-centric Web sites, videos, contests and clothing companies. Frailty, thy name is not woman.  (Photo: Dana Giordano/Shazamm/ESPN images - Justin Kosman/Red Bull - Brian Barnhart)
