Caselli Foundation x Babes in the Dirt x CPR & First Responder Training

When you have hobbies that involve two wheels, its imperative that you learn CPR and basic life saving skills. We are grateful for the chance to partner with the Kurt Caselli Foundation to certify 30 ladies, who attend Babes in the Dirt, in CPR and First Responder training with Life Goes On coaches at Fox Racing Headquarters. If you are interested in learning these necessary skills, contact Life Goes On to see when their next class is. You won’t regret it :)

Kurt Caselli Foundation Partners With Babes in the Dirt 5 to Support On Site Ambulance

Safety is something we take seriously as and event and as individuals. Since we have access to a MX track for Babes in the Dirt 5, we take extra precautions to ensure we have immediate on site help if the situation arises. Ambulances are not cheap and the costs exceed over $5,000 for the event but not having one is simply not an option. Once again, the Kurt Caselli Foundation has stepped in to generously help the biggest part of the cost and we will have an on site raffle to raise the small amount of additional funds needed. 100% of any extra funds raised will into future education that KFC provides annually that focuses on the safety within the off-road industry. Thank you KCF! We are forever grateful for your kindness and care for all those who ride.

Kurt Caselli Foundation

The Kurt Caselli Foundation was established in 2013. The focus of the foundation is the safety of riders and racers in the off-road motorcycling industry. While we understand the inherent elements of danger in this industry, we aim to help minimize this danger to the best of our ability. The foundation has a three-part mission that encompasses safety precautions for riders before, during, and after a racing career.

1. Before racing, we are committed to encouraging, developing, and standardizing safety precautions that will help minimize risk outside of the rider's control.

2. During racing, we are committed to developing, establishing, and encouraging the use of safety equipment and policies to increase the safety of the riders.

3. After racing, we are committed to providing a safety net that allows and encourages former racers to further their education and reach career goals for themselves and their families.

All this is done through the loving memory of Kurt Caselli, friend, racer, son, and so much more. Read more about his legacy and those who keep his memory alive by clicking HERE.

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. 

How do I contact the park for additional information about the trails, weather, terrain, longitude and latitude, wind speed, composition report of the dirt substance?!

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!
