LETTER OF THE MONTH
I took up dirt biking last year and have gotten completely addicted, as happens when you take up dirt biking! However, as a woman, I feel that there just aren’t a) enough of us ladies riding, b) many resources (advice for women), and c) women-specific riding gear/equipment!
I recently became the proud new owner of a KTM 150 XC. I love this bike; it has increased my riding ability and confidence. However, in figuring out which bike to buy, I had to resort to talking to a bunch of big, Endurocross-loving men. Although we got around to the right bike in the end, the point is women are different! That said, I do love Moto Girls [a section on dirtrider.com]. Well done with that. Keep digging that dirt! There are a ton of us ladies riding; come join us girls at the Babes In The Dirt 3! If you’re ever out West, come find me; I love meeting new friends to ride with. As your resident female staffer, I appreciate your letter and we’re working on more coverage for women riders including how-tos, product reviews, and bike-test opinions. —Lindsey Lovell, Web Producer
