About Skirts in the Dirt



No matter what your skill level may be, we have a category designed for you! Our Never Ever! category was created with beginners and recreational riders who may not have ever raced before in mind, whereas our NEW Boss category is designed for women experienced in racing who just want to ride fast and zoom through the course without doing any of the challenges along the way. Squirts in the Dirt is free for girls 12 and under, and we even have a single speed and a tandem category! How fun!

Testimonials and inspiring Women

One of the things that makes us happiest is seeing past Skirts in the Dirt participants succeed in their goals after joining us on race day! Whether someone comes back year after year, or if they head off to other races like Ore to Shore, the Lumberjack 100, or even the Iditarod Trail Invitational, it makes our hearts happy to know that they were with us at one point and that they're out there kicking butt in the women's racing scene! Whether you go on to do bigger things or you come back year after year, we're so happy you're out there riding and hitting the trails with us!

Why Race?

There are a lot of reasons why we encourage you to race mountain bikes! We love seeing everyone learn, get stronger, ride further, and all of the friendships that come from spending time together on the trails. Having a race on the horizon can help push you to spend more time on your bike - and we love that!!
