The Weekend Warriors Taking Women's Motocross to the Next Level
The dust bicycle world presented their first female-focused motocross competition 44 years back with the Powder Smoke Nationals in Valencia, California. Since then, different skilled and amateur games have already been included along with the guy games, like at the X Activities, the Loretta Lynns, the WMX championship series and the Endurocross series. But there exists a lesser-known quotient of the moto earth: the week-end knight women. However, to be honest, they're setting up way more hours than their vacations, and keeping down full-time careers as well.
