WLF Enduro at Babes in the Dirt 5

babes in the dirt

We are so excited to welcome back the crew at WLF Enduro to Babes in the Dirt 5! For their 3rd year in a row they will be providing trail support to anyone that needs it as well as bringing the heat for the bonfires after hours near the WLF den. With their motto of “Further Together”, this crew knows the true meaning of no rider left behind. (never forget the Smith brothers riding 2-up on a single track trail to rescue the bike of a rider who was injured) If you are out on the trails and see a member of the WLF Pack in their signature jerseys make sure to throw up a high five or if you need some support flag them down. So grateful to have them as part of the Babes in the Dirt Family! Read on to get to know more about them!

BABES IN THE DIRT

WLF MISSION:

Unifying riders around the globe with the common passion of two wheels and a throttle.
Providing riders a credible resource for quality products tested by actual use and effectiveness in the field.

WHO WE ARE:

We are of humble beginnings from the hills and deserts of Southern California. Some of us have been riding and racing dirt bikes from birth, others of us picked up the sport later in life. What started as a handful of rag-tag teachers, salesmen and construction workers has turned into a team of riders connected around the globe. From DualSport/ADV bikes to technical Off-Road, Enduro riding, we love it all. We are brought together by moto-camaraderie and the passion of exploring on two wheels.

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!

Meet the WLF Pack

It's true, you meet the nicest people on a motorcycle! We first met WLF Enduro on a fun day of riding out in Johnson Valley. After a weekend of camping and riding some really amazing trails, they felt like family. We are so excited to welcome them back to Babes in the Dirt 4! Meet the crew and read on to hear about what they have in store for the event. 

*  We’re here to help!! Our moto is always been, "FUTHER TOGETHER”. We’re here to witness the radness of what all you ladies have built together, and a full focus on the community of women rippers! 

*  Trail Patrol; running around all over Gorman with white helmets and noticeable Stumble Bee jersey, just waive! We’re here to assist in any way with the bike issues, direct routes back to camp or you just need a high five after you did the epic hill climb you’ve been trying to concur! Also want to rip some of the fun trails that are available, look forward to getting after it with ya’ll! 

* Bringing the HEAT! Literally, we’ll be filling out trail support trailer coined “THE DEN” with a ton of free firewood. Please come up and help yourself to keep warm in the Gorman eve’s. 

* WLF / Cub Camp; We’ll be staging a camp for Dads, Husbands, Kiddos, Boyfriends or just bro friends (we dont judge) to get everyone together while you gals do your thing in the event space! You know what they say “it takes a village” especially without the help of our wonderful ladies! This is just a full homie and grom zone to hang out, nothing formal but, it is good to know that we’ll all be ok while you gals are having a raging good time!!!
