From attending the first Women’s freeride competition in 2007 at Crankworx, to scoring an invite to the first Women’s Speed & Style Comp in Austria, Anita is a rare find.
The first pro-mountain biker of East Indian heritage, she was named one of the ‘World’s Most Adventurous Women’ by Men’s Journal, and the ‘World’s 100 most Provocative Cultural Catalysts’. Anita is an international award-winning humanitarian, aspiring astronaut, environmental & electrical engineer, anti-racism consultant, MTB coach, and a pioneer in diversifying outdoor sports.
When she’s not riding, skiing, or climbing in the mountains, Anita can be found in remote corners of the world working on global crisis projects.
"Being the first pro mountain biker of my ethnicity has helped me show generations of dark-skinned girls, many who never previously saw themselves reflected in outdoors sports, in popular culture or in mainstream society - what's possible both on and off the bike." Anita Naidu.
