Over And Out Moto brings together women who ride (or want to ride) all types of off-road terrain including woods, enduro, dual sport, motocross and more.
If you don’t know where to begin with off-road riding it can be confusing or challenging to get started, and it can be super intimidating to join a race unless you meet people who help you along, or meet friends who try it with you!
Sure enough in the past year since our first event, a handful of women who met at OAO teamed up to do their first enduros, races and hare scrambles as members of the DVTR riding club. These ladies are coming back to OAO this year, ready to lend their advice about moving forward into new off-road riding (and racing!) adventures..
“What I love most about racing and riding in the ECEA is the opportunity to ride through beautiful places that are normally closed off to bikes, and the chance to pursue the next level of riding on my own terms, without being pressured into winning.”
- Katie Baden, Delaware Valley Trail Riders, KTM Freeride
”I am in awe that I even showed up to my first race. You know when you fully believe that something is out of your reach? It’s for someone else to do. For someone stronger or smarter or better with way superior, bushier eyebrows who can wheelie? But then you do the thing and you clearly see all the make believe barriers you create or agree to. You realize you can do just about anything if you have the desire, if you persist and if you take the chance that you, your very own vulnerable, imperfect self, has limitless potential.”
- Nicole Maniez, DVTR, KTM 150 XCW
“I joined an ECEA club because I love riding off road. It gives me the opportunity to meet awesome women and men who love to ride also. You don’t have to race Enduros or Hare Scrambles to have fun. I’m in it for the trail riding, the people and the opportunities to grow as a proficient rider.”
- Tamara Berisha, DVTR, KTM 250 EXC-F
