Quite possibly the best thing that's ever come from Riverside, Desiree has been putting down hammers and raising the bar for women through untapped presses and casual controlled style. Though her backlips and frontboards may look simplistic, don't be fooled by the true level of difficulty behind her faultless maneuvers.
