Gale Dahlager, Coach
Sweetlines SUGAR SHOWDOWN SANTA CRUZ
Gale Dahlager has been racing and coaching mountain bikes for over 15 years. She began racing cross country before discovering downhill and dual slalom, which proved to be much more of her forte.
With 9 years at the pro, competing in the national circuit and several world cup races, her race career culminated with making the US National DH team in ’03 & ’04. She continued competing in the budding women’s slope-style scene becoming one of the first few women to land a back flip on a mountain bike.
Gale is an International Mountain bike Instructor Certification (IMIC) Master Coach, and spends a lot of time coaching dirt jump/slope style camps and women’s weekends. Gale is a former skier-x X-Games and Gravity Games competitor, and currently works as an EMT and a guide for an adventure travel company. She currently resides in Salt Lake City, UT.
