Anita Naidu

An all-mountain matador hailing from Whistler, B.C Anita divides her time between the mountains, the internet and a variety of questionable international locations. A former slopestyle and slalom competitor ( and former 19 year old….) Anita still enjoys jumping into the occasional pro race. Recently named one of the “ World’s Adventurous Women “ by Men’s Journal she is among the industry’s most in-demand coaches and has helped thousands of people, from elite racers to beginners reach their biking goals. Head coach and organizer of Canada’s biggest women’s bike festival along with Bike Fest Series, Anita is committed to making mountain biking more accessible to everyone. She has represented a number of international sponsors as an athlete and when she’s not catching air, she’s an award-winning humanitarian, engineer, aspiring astronaut and investigative documentarian. In the off-season, Anita is usually found in a remote corner of the world (where she’s forced to switch up her bike for wheelbarrow as the preferred mode of transit…) working on global social impact projects. Her travels have taught her that the best defence against bike thieves is a bike box labelled “ RADIOACTIVE WASTE”

A frequent keynote speaker, Anita is featured in Red Bull Media’s upcoming film “ Project Wild Women “ for her pioneering role in gravity sports. Her sell-out clinics have been featured in numerous global publications and are popping up all over the world, so keep your eyes peeled for one in your town! @abrownpanther
