Been Waiting for This One: Women of Dirt! With Seattle Premiere…

In Bicycle Racing, Mountain Biking, Videos on November 24, 2009 at 6:38 pm

Hometown legend Jill Kintner, who missed being World Champion this year by a mascaraed eyelash, will be featured in the worldwide premiere of “Women of Dirt,” a long-awaited film focusing on the world of women mountain bikers. It’ll happen Feb. 5th at the Northwest Film Forum theater on Capitol Hill, 12th Avenue between Pike and Pine.

Here’s hoping Jill herself will be on hand for the rollout.

We’ve been huge Kintner fans since the beginning, our respect only growing when we saw her grit out a medal at the 2008 Olympics despite a blown-out knee, and then rehab over winter for a dynamite 2009 season. Jill is hands-down the best slalom racer in the world and we’re confident she’ll get the rainbow jersey next year. For all her accomplishments she remains a very real, earnest, down-to-earth person, still carrying that unassuming Northwest humility with her wherever she goes.

Jill’s just one of the stars featured in a lineup including Tammy Donahugh, Stephanie Nychka, Cierra Smith, Emily Johnston, Lisa Myklak, Leana Gerrard, Dawn Cashen, Katrina Strand, Kathy Pruitt, and Darcy Turenne. Bike Magazine has posted a few of the trailers, including Jill’s.

It should be a great evening at the NWFF!
