No fears for new pro


Queenstown mountain biker Louise Ferguson’s pictured dropping off the ridge through
‘The Utahrus’ during April’s Red Bull Formation in Virgin, Utah.

Ferguson, along with fellow Queenstowner Vinny Armstrong, and fellow Kiwi Robin Goomes,
were among 12 of the top female mountain bikers in the world invited to participate in the third annual women’s-only event.

Formation sees the women work alongside mentors and diggers to carve their route in the red dirt of southern Utah, aiming to create a top-to-bottom line which illustrates their skill, style and power, and continue to push the women’s field.

Ferguson, who’s just turned pro, is now in Scotland hoping to qualify for her first World Cup.
