Accompanying Lorraine's interview are some of the best freeride shots I've ever seen of a female rider.

The girl shreds.

Have a look here and see if you disagree...

you can always make more money but you can never make more time.

I think it's called work for a reason. Or else they probably would have called it fun-time at the fun factory.

"Is there a female freerider who shreds harder than Lorraine?"

I guess Eamo is #2 now….?

I had her as a coach on my second day at SGC. She definetly knows how to break down the mechanics of doing something of not only how to do it, but also how you are currently doing it and how to fix it. She was great to ride with.

total scam. he put food before beer.

Great article though.

Lorraine has been going at it harder and longer than any girl I know.

Comparing her to Marcie is pointless. Marcie is a ripper for sure and keeps it low key. She is not alone, these days they are everywhere.

Lorraine is out there coaching/racing and generally showing the ladies a great example. She is getting props here for the work she does. Riding for yourself is cool and all, but that's all it is.

The young girls need riders like Lorraine and Marcie to look up to.

Lorraine was DH National Champ when Rachel Atherton was like 10 years old. I'm sure if she dedicated herself back to racing she could be within a pretty reasonable time of the female Atherton.

Lorraine is our Leigh Donovan.

Props kiddo!

I'd love to go ride in Costa Rica one day …

I always enjoy the articles about female riders - learning about them and from them!

I have no filter …

Sweet interview and pics! Lorraine is just one of the coolest and best people you'll know. Hand's down. The fact that she shreds harder than you might be a tough pill to swallow for some…haha.
