All these badass ladies came out to ride motocross, grass tracks and our woods loop, to take lessons and expand their riding skills and knowledge, and they came with a positive attitude, ready to take on new challenges with a smile and a “hell yes!”

We had woods and trail riders, motocross riders, and newer riders all together in one place to have fun together, inspire one-another and learn from each other just by riding. And riding is what they did…

We saw so many girls take their first laps ever on a motocross track - one built with them in mind. Within just a few laps we could already see these ladies reaping the rewards of riding with repetition, allowing them to make progress on their form, speed and to build confidence.

Some ladies learned crucial techniques from professional MX trainer Aaron Lampi, including ladies who ride confidently in the woods or on trails, but who have never set wheels on an mx track before! We can’t wait to see what this training does for their woods and trail riding!

GPMX dirty girls held their 6-hour intro-do-dirt class, with coaches Greg and Marika Pamart leading the gals through a number of technique-training drills and an introductory lap around the track.

Solid Performance KTM of Downingtown, PA provided on-site maintenance support for our riders, set sags and talked to them about suspension!

Many of our female attendees now have a better understanding of bike features like suspension, and how it can differ for trail and woods bikes as opposed to motocross bikes.

We had a blast battling it out in the mini-bike obstacle relay-course, winning prize packs from WeBig Inc! (And those of us watching had just as much fun seeing these ladies try to spin or hop then get back tovgive their teammate a high-five!)

And really some of the greatest memories of the whole weekend were during chill time. In the evenings we’d grab some delicious food from the Good Food = Good Mood Truck, maybe a cup of hot apple cider, and we’d chill around the bonfire enjoying the company of other rad ladies who spent the day riding their hearts out!!
