Ashley and Marjolein at Revolve Training have thrown together a pretty sweet little six hour women’s only race at Makara Peak. It’s taking place on the the 6th of November and there’s a whole lot more info below. Oh and you can guarantee there will be home baking!

Women of Dirt- 6 hour MTB event

Saturday 6 November 2010
We’re not like other girls; we like brown more than pink, Camelbaks better than handbags, and would choose a chain ring over a diamond ring any day. We are the ‘Women of Dirt’! Let’s get ready to dig deep and get dirty with Wellington’s first women’s only 6 hour mountain bike feast! With two categories, ‘Dirty Girls’ (Team of 4), and ‘Dirt Diva’ (Solo) there’s some mud appeal for everyone!


Dirty Girls – In a team of up to 4 women you’ll take turns riding around a set course (approx. 30 min long). The team with the most laps in 6 hours takes the cake… literally! So gather your friends, dress up in your fancy costumes, bake some goodies, and enjoy the ride!

Dirt Diva- A solo challenge for the Wonder Women out there, the endurance lovers. You’ll be on the same course for 6 hours as the Dirty Girls, though your speedometer will show a few more km’s at the end of the day.

Dirty Girls (Team of 4): $120 ($140 after 25 October)
Dirt Diva (Solo!): $40 ($50 after 25 October)
All entries close 1 November
