Cheryl Maas will forever hold the title as TTR’s first ever female Tour champion, but it was by no means the last trinked the Dutch rider would pick up.
Having grown up in the Netherlands, where mountains are particularly rare, Cheryl spent her time as a youngster on the dry slopes of Uden. But at the age of 17, Cheryl packed up and left her hometown to head for Mayrhofen, Austria. She quickly progressed and now she holds numerous titles from the biggest competitions in the world.
Despite being one of the more senior riders on the women’s circuit, she still challenges for the podium and boasts more style than some riders half her age. She was also the first female rider to land a 900 in an X Games slopestyle competition, which she managed at Tignes back in 2011. Basically, she’s kind of a big deal.
