Darcy Turenne has been at the top of her game as a female freerider for several years now, but it seems she has changed gears and is taking her talents onto new challenges. For the last few years she has been studying a masters degree in international and intercultural communications as well as travelling the globe presenting the RideGuideTV, being a Norco ambassador, and all sorts of other fun busyness. Darcy graduated a little while back and already she is popping out amazing shorts. Above is a music video she filmed and below is a study or short documentary into the genre barrier for women attempting to engage in action sports in Indonesia. Check it.
