The Weekend Warriors Taking Women's Motocross to the Next Level
The dirt bicycle scene presented its first female-focused motocross battle 44 years ago with the Powder Puff Nationals in Valencia, California. Since then, different professional and amateur contests have now been added along side the man contests, like at the X Activities, the Loretta Lynns, the WMX championship series and the Endurocross series. But there's a lesser-known quotient of the moto world: the weekend warrior women. Though, in all honesty, they are putting in far more hours than their vacations, and keeping down full-time jobs as well.
