Catch up with what went down at Camp VC 2018Read More
We came, we saw, we rode dirt with some of the UKs best dirt track riders & racers, learned a few MX skills, jumped dirt jumps, camped out , hung out around a bonfire, met old friends & met a few new ones as well, all at the amazing Greenfield Dirt Track facility in Lincolnshire...... This was DIRT CAMP 2018!
Started in 2015 by The Dirt Track Rider Association as an initiative to get more women into flat track & ultimately racing in the DTRA series, DIRT CAMP has now grown into a weekend full of everything from complete learners jumping on a bike for the first time, advice & lessons from some of the UKs leading flat track racers (including the Incredible Leah Tokelove) about how to go fast & turn left, MX skills & enduro riding.
A massive thanks to all the people who work hard to make this event a real highlight of the summer! From the ,DTRA, Greenfield Dirt track (and all who run this incredible grass roots facility), Leah Tokelove & all the instructors who donate their time & bikes to the cause, and of course the amazing ladies who came along & got dirty with us!
LONG LIVE DIRT CAMP!

Yesterday we held the first VC X DOCKLANDS RIDERS DIRT DAY over at Docklands riders, East London & man was it a blast.
A huge thanks to Docklands Riders & to everyone involved for coming down & making it a great one.....Maaaaaaan I'm aching today.
Cant wait for the next one!
A couple of weeks ago we were lucky enough to be invited out to Milan to The Reunion custom moto show by the shows organiser Matteo Andreani! In only its second year The Reunion is an incredible moto gathering with some of Italys best bike builders, moto brands & moto clubs getting together to show off their newest projects, hang out in the sunshine topped off by a mini dirt track & one gnarly drag race on the Monza track. We rode, we raced, we drank beers in the sunshine, ate too much salami, danced until the sun went down & came home with a few cuts & bruises but with massive smiles all round & a hell of alot of new mental Italian pals.
The thing that stood out for us about the Reunion was their incredibly Italian way of doing things... A totally welcoming, laid back, chilled out, family orientated event with so many friendly faces riding around on their bikes in the sunshine that you couldn't help but feel like you could only be in Italy...And the standard of bike builds blew us away
Well definitely be back next year.... and hopefully well be a bit more successful on the drag racing than this time ;)
A massive thanks to The Reunion, DMD helmets, Yamaha Italy & of course the wonderful Matteo Andreani & merry band of Milano Cafe racers for making it one crazy weekend to remember.

Ahhhhh take us back to last summer.... Probably one of the best days of last summer was the ladies flat track day set up by the chaps over at the DTRA . We turned left, crashed, got back on, crashed some more but all went home with multiple bruises, new pals & big smiles on dirty faces. Oh, if only we could do it all over again........... But wait..........

We dressed up like chaps for the day and rode round London for charity..... Is it weird that we are missing our taches now?
Massive big up to Mark Hawwa & the crew at the Distiguished gentlemans ride for putting this on to raise funds for prostate cancer and for being all round swell guys! See you next year!
Last Sunday we rode over to the legendary Ace Cafe London where a world record attempt for the largest gathering of women motorcycle riders was being held. A total of 618 women riders turned out smashing the previous record 251 women to bits! Women riders of all ages (the youngest rider being little Emilia at just 10 years old on her dirt bike - totally wanted to adopt her!), on all types of bikes rode from all over the UK to meet & hang out for an awesome afternoon. A massive thanks & congrats Sherrie Woolfe & Nimi Patel for organising the event!
