What happens when you take 700 women, put them in a canyon surrounded by dirt trails and a motocross track, and give them a weekend to camp? Babes In The Dirt, that’s what happens. This was the fourth year of the all-women’s dirt riding campout, created by Anya Violet and Ashmore Ellis, held at Quail Canyon Motocross track within the Hungry Valley State Vehicle Recreation Area. This was the first year the event took over Quail Canyon, which provided the attendees more privacy from the rest of the park.
The new location afforded lots of room for RV camping (which was sorely needed this year, as campers prepared for windy conditions), a couple of communal fire pits, and a recreation room that housed dancing and karaoke, in addition to the return of Fox Racing’s pop-up shop, Flat Track Coffee, a taco truck, and a fleet of demo bikes from Husqvarna. From goofy costumes, to minibike races, to trails that challenged a lot of riders, this year’s Babes In The Dirt turned out to be a solid 48 hours of pure moto sister fun.
