FAQs:

Please note, these are just a few FAQs that are dirt specific. To know all FAQ for all BRO events click HERE

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event? All our events are 21+ and ladies only.  IDs will be checked before you enter the site so make sure it matches the name you register with. Everyone MUST be pre registered to attend. 

Why are you charging this year? We have been so stoked to foot the bill the past 4 years but as the event grows, so do the many costs to be able to produce it. The ticket fee and parking for trailers, toyhaulers, and RVS go to cover the many line items that go into producing an event of this magnitude to ensure it can continue to exist. Thank you for helping <3!

What kind of transportation is allowed?  Cars, trucks, trailers, toy haulers, and RVs are welcome inside the campsite but parking is limited due to space. There is a parking fee for anything behind towed behind a car or truck as you'd be taking up much more space which reduces the # of attendee space. Looking for a ride? Hit up our event page on Facebook to see if you can hop in with another attendee. 

What sticker does my bike need? Does my bike need a spark arrestor? Red or green and YES you will get ticketed if you do not have a spark arrestor. Please read all the rules and regs for your offroad vehicle by clicking this link 

Can I bring my pet into the event? No animals can be in the group site unless they are service dogs. This is not a pet friendly environment. 

How will I know when the Husqvarna registration,  classes, etc are open for registration? If you are registered to attend, you will get an email announcing it. If you aren't paying attention, you may miss it! We do not have a date for when the email will go out (please don't ask <3). 

Can I get a refund? Tickets are non refundable but you can transfer up until registration ends.

Roll Call | Meet Fox Womens Nina Buitrago

Nina Buitrago is hands down the most influential woman in BMX. In college, she discovered her love for the sport when she didn’t have a car and turned to a bike. She went to the local dirt jumps with friends and was instantly hooked. Most recently, she was named by ESPN as one of the "20 most unstoppable women in action sports” and we aren’t surprised. Respected by everyone, Nina not only proves she can hang with the boys, but she is passionate about growing the BMX scene for women and showcasing their skills on a bike.

Nina embracing Babes in the Dirt 

How long have you been on the Fox program and what do you enjoy most about being a part of the team and representing the brand?

I am proud to officially have been with Fox since 2013.

Fox has deep roots from two-wheels, and it’s been an amazing partnership and adventure getting to discover my love for other two wheels: dirt bikes at Babes in the Dirt and mountain bikes at Crankworx!  Also, important to me is that Fox has nothing but love for women who shred, always innovative, and supportive of women and their needs to be comfortable no matter what kind of “shred” we are doing, head to toe!  No one wants to think twice about their gear, and I since day one with Fox I haven’t ever looked back.  

How was your experience at Babes in the Dirt 3?

So awesome!! I have a Harley Davidson sportster at home I rip around Austin, but I have always wanted to try riding dirt bikes and Babes in the Dirt seemed like it would be an ideal event to give it a shot!  Fox had a tent with gear to demo, Husqvarna had a fleet of bikes to demo, Flat Track Coffee was there to keep us caffeinated, 805 beer kept the karaoke going until midnight, haha, it was a blast!  I met so many rad ladies who road tripped from all over, got to go on so many rides, huge thank you to Fox for this experience I highly recommend this event for any of you want to try dirt bikes, and any gals who already ride bring your friends!!! Memories for a lifetime.

Babes in the Dirt

What brought you to Austin? 

One visit turned into an annual visit which eventually turned into every chance I could make it back to Austin until eventually I moved here 7 years ago.  The people, the food, the spots to ride, the great weather most of the year are what brought me here.  

Babes in the Dirt

You’re really into the music scene, name a few of your favorite bands?  

Aside from classics like Black Sabbath, Motörhead, MC5... living in Austin has me diggin some tunes by bands I recently got to see like Sheer Mag, Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats, and the Dirty Fence’s.

Lucky for Babes in the Dirt, Fox Womens makes the best protection out there and will be demoing gear at Babes in the Dirt 4. Stop by their booth to get suited and booted but please know, there are limited amounts of gear and demos will be rotated hourly so no hoggin' babes! Try it, love it, and return to give everyone a chance to experience the line up.

WOMENS 180 BOOT

Specifically sized for Women, the Womens Comp 5 uses a Womens last (fit in the foot area) and specific shorter overall height on the smaller sizes. Support and coverage comes from a durable plastic shinplate, medial guard and toe cap.

The V1 helmet uses an injection molded polycarbonate shell, internal EPS liner and removable washable comfort liner and cheek pads and meets ECE 22.05 and DOT standards. This proven design provides reliable protection from debris and falls. Optimal airflow, a plush liner, and an exceptional fit contribute to the helmets phenomenal comfort.

For an excellent fit, the Fox V1 Race Helmet is engineered in three shells and four EPS dimensions and comes in 6 sizes ranging from XS-XXL. By providing different specifications for each helmet size, you achieve a more accurate and precise fit. The varying sizes and fits mean you can more easily find your perfect match.

There is no reason a full-face motocross helmet should overheat, turning the interior into a sweaty mess. The Fox V1 Race Helmet features an advanced ventilation system to keep you cool, calm and focused. With nine intake and four exhaust vents, the helmet provides a rush of fresh air as you ride and allows heat and moisture to escape. The combination of circulating air and a soft helmet liner will help keep you comfortable even in the scorching heat.

Shoulder, back, and bicep coverage uses the same durable plastic that is used on the chest plate. It has fully adjustable and removable padded arm guards. This comes in sizes S/M and M/L.

Fox Women's Athlete Exclusive | Meet Ashley Fiolek

Fox Women's has been supporting women who ride for years. It's clear they genuinely care about ladies getting involved in the sport by creating incredible protection gear that fits and by cheering them on the entire way. We are so proud to have them a part of Babes in the Dirt over the past few years and wanted to highlight and celebrate a few of the women that represent their brand on two wheels. Our first Fox Women's athlete feature needs no introduction. She's the fast as hell, a true phenomenon to watch ride, and one of the kindest and inspiring ladies you will meet on two wheels, meet Motocross Champion Ashley Fiolek. 

Ashley Fiolek : Arguably one of the most iconic women in the action sports industry is 27-year-old former professional motocross athlete Ashley Fiolek. Ashley has broken down more barriers than most to say the least, not only because she was born profoundly deaf, but because she was a female in a male dominated industry. The Michigan native had big dreams of becoming a professional women’s motocross racer, not only did she achieve this dream but was a forced to be reckoned with! Ashley was the first ever women motocross racer to earn a full factory ride like her male counterpart. Along with earning a full factory ride Ashley is a four-time WMA/WMX National Motocross Champion and two-time ESPN X Games Gold Medalist (Women’s Super X).

Her success and inspirational story skyrocketed her into mainstream media with an Emmy award winning Red Bull commercial and appearances on, Conan O'Brien and “Switched At Birth.” Ashley gained worldwide coverage and is the only women motocross racer to appear on a cover of a nationwide publication, Transworld Motocross Magazine. She has graced the pages of, Vogue, Sports Illustrated, and Rolling Stone Magazine and is the co-author of her book “Kicking Up Dirt.” Although Ashley no longer races she spreads her passion and love for motocross through her riding school, Ashley Fiolek MX Schools and is a brand ambassador for Husqvarna Motorcycles and Fox Racing.

How long have you been working with Fox and what do you enjoy most about being a part of the team and representing the brand?

I rode for Fox when I was amateur so it was cool to come back in 2016 as an ambassador.  I love all the Moto, MTB gear and clothes that really fit me and my lifestyle. I also like the comradery of the women who ride and work for Fox and like being associated with a brand that supports current top women racers like Livia Lancelot, Jordan Jarvis, Courtney Duncan, Kyle Fasnacht, and Shelby Rolen.

Where are you from originally, and where do you live currently?

I was born in Michigan and my family moved to Florida when I was 8.  I lived in California for a few years but I am back in Florida now close to my family

When did you start riding dirtbikes, and what inspired you?

I started riding dirt bikes when I was really young and started racing at 7 years old.  Both my dad and grandpa ride dirt bikes.

What inspired you to start AF MX School?

I wanted to help other riders be safer and faster on a dirt bike. I still love riding too so it makes doing the schools really fun. I also love seeing riders (especially women and kids) gain confidence after learning a new riding skill. 

You’ve ridden the best tracks, which one was your favorite to ride and why?

Honestly, that is tough one! I'd say RedBud because the track is absolutely a blast and super rough which I love the challenge. Also, I'm from Michigan so it was awesome to have all the fans out there to cheer me on at my favorite track.

Do you have a desire to compete in Women’s Motorcross again?

I don’t see myself racing Women’s Motocross professionally, may a fun one-off race and I still like doing an off-road race for fun here and there

Tell us about any plans you have for 2018.

Right now I am focused on my schools AFMXschool.com and a few personal projects back in Florida. I hope to spend a lot of free time on trails and motocross tracks and on my mountain bike.

What advice would you give other women who want to participate in Motorcross? 

I'd tell them to not give up. Keep working hard and reach your own dream. Hard work pays off. Most important is to have fun while you're working hard to reach your dream. Also, anything is possible! :)
