The glue that holds the Santa Cruz Syndicate together is an understatement.

The Inside Line Podcast - Kathy Sessler, Manager of the Santa Cruz Syndicate

I'm extremely honored to introduce today's guest of The Inside Line, Kathy Sessler. The first thing I want to say is that I feel like I was way off in our interview intro when I call her the "Den Mother" of the Santa Cruz Syndicate. While I meant that to be endearing, I realized, after our interview, that the term doesn't convey the complexity and responsibility that comes with being Syndicate team manager. My perceptions of what she does with arguably downhilling's most exciting team were completely changed after the interview. I hope the conversation we had gets you get stoked on Kathy's extremely deep history with bikes and racing, as well as with what she does for our sport today. Enjoy the show! -gordo

 

Kathy Sessler's 8mm film footage of the BMX races she put on in the early 1970's. She was 13 years old, had her brothers dig the tracks, she put up the tape, organized the races and then filmed it all. Incredible!

Knees tucked in tight. That's style, kids.
