The Kurt Caselli Foundation’s mission is Protecting and Supporting the Lives of Off-Road Riders. The Foundation has budgeted allocations and planned safety projects for 2019 and years beyond, setting this year’s safety budget to $120,000 to host and support safety events and fund educational scholarships for riders.
 
 “Our group at The Kurt Caselli Foundation continues to strive to serve our community the best we can and to promote safety. The Kurt Caselli  Riders 1st Responders is the latest initiative that will be providing courses in CPR/First Aid certification and training for participants in off-road racing. We rolled this out December 2017 with huge success and teaming up with the Babes In The Dirt is a great fit for our Safety Foundation.” — Donny Emler Jr, President of the Kurt Caselli Foundation
 

Babes in the Dirt 4 | Re-cap | THANK YOU!

BABES IN THE DIRT

Wow, just WOW! Never in a million years did we think this event would grow to what it is today. Because of ladies like you, who are growing the off-road community with your sheer enthusiasm and kindness, have helped to create one of the largest gathering of dirt bike loving ladies we've ever witnessed. Thanks to every single one of you who donated to make this event happen, I hope you got to see just how far your donations went. Because of you, this event was our best one yet and so many ladies got to experience dirt without any hesitations. 

This event wouldn't be possible without the support of the following:

BABES IN THE DIRT

Husqvarna Motorcycles for bringing out 30 demo bikes. Thank you for offering classes for first time riders and demos for beginners & experienced riders that were fun , challenging, and so rewarding! If you got a chance to try one of their machines, you probably fell in love. Husqvarna was with us since our very first year when there were only 60 of us ripping trails in between rain and hail storms. This journey would not be possible without the Husqvarna brand and the amazing humans that make up their team. We consider them family!

Fox Womens for doing one hell of a gear demo and offering so much free stuff to the attendees that we were in awe! These ladies kicked major ass and were all smiles the entire time. We hope you all got to experience how modern gear (that fits) can give you so much more confidence on the trails (and can be life saving). 

BABES IN THE DIRT

WLF Enduro for running trail patrol, helping pick up bikes, handing out high fives, assisting with a kick start here and there,  capturing epic jump shots, and for all the firewood. We truly believe in their motto "Further Together" as that is exactly what went down this weekend. We can't thank them enough for their support!

BABES IN THE DIRT

Kurt Caselli Foundation for the medical support. With 700 ladies in attendance and 2 motocross tracks open, it was vital to have a full service ambulance with 2 trained paramedics on site for 3 days. We are so grateful to the Caselli foundation for investing in safety and education with every project they touch. It was truly an honor to have them involved and to have Nancy Caselli get to experience the event. 

BABES IN THE DIRT

Thousand Oaks Powersports fixed 106 bikes so ladies could get back out there an ride. 106 is a new Babes in the Dirt record! Their team was there to show you what you can do to prevent maintenance issues and help fix any minor things that kept ladies from riding. Thank you to Mark and Gary for all their hard work!

BABES IN THE DIRT

Sena for us connected. We saw so many riders with their Senas on, allowing them to keep their group together and warn each other of any on coming trail traffice or obstacles. Not to mention capturing each others wipe outs and triumphs! Thank you for bringing the laughs to the event with their obstacle course. Being able to stay connected on the trail was incredible and so much fun!

BABES IN THE DIRT

See See Motorcycles for the fun and games. Never have we seen such perseverance with the mini bike games.  This brand truly embodies the spirit of good times, good friends, and two wheels. 

BABES IN THE DIRT

Garrahan Offroad Training taught over 100 ladies how to ride at #babesinthedirt4 whether you had never been on a bike in your life or were looking to advance your skills; Brian Garrahan and the crew had the training course ready to rip! Thank you for being there and thank you to all the ladies that tried something new last weekend !

Debra, Chris, Ross, Gary, Justin, Maggie, Dawn and the entire staff of Hungry Valley SVRA. These people worked so hard behind the scenes to ensure the tracks were groomed, rangers were in position, emergency planning was dialed, permits were filed, bathrooms cleaned, trash sorted, and so much more! Our parks services are incredible and we hope you return to visit them and many more this year. 

Thank you to all of our raffle contributors!

Kurt Caselli Foundation X Babes in the Dirt 4

We are honored to announce that Kurt Caselli Foundation will be partnering with us for Babes in the Dirt 4 to provide an on site ambulance throughout the weekend. We are so grateful to have the support of such an amazing organization!

Having an ambulance with 2 trained paramedics on site this year allows us to treat any minor injuries on site and ensure speedy treatment for any more serious injuries. They have also included yellow caution flags to flag any hazzards on the track.  Thank you so much to KCF! We have listed some tips and tricks to keep you safe throughout the weekend and make sure that you don't get to meet the paramedics.

1. Ride your own ride! Make sure you are not riding over your head or on terrain that you are not comfortable on. 

2. The vast majority of trails at Hungry Valley are 2 way trails. Take the corners slow and keep an eye out for on coming bikes, buggies, jeeps etc.

3. Buddy system: never hit a trail on your own. Ride together to make sure everyone gets back to camp safely. 

4. Post your turns: If you are leading a ride, make sure to stop and wait at any fork in the road s that the rider behind you sees which direction you go. 

5. All the gear all the time! Proper riding gear can mean the difference between a broken bone and a light bruise. Gear up!

6. Stay hydrated
