There was no shortage of good vibes, great people and high energies this past weekend at the third annual Triple B ladies only dirtbike rally. Held by the Revy Riders Dirtbike Club, Glacier House Resort hosted more than 50 participants and their families as the girls took over the campground and Revy Riders’ track and trails.

Participants from across Alberta and B.C. came in Friday night hauling their bikes, campers, friends and families to take part in the one of a kind event. Growing in popularity each year, the rally includes a full weekend of camping, a packed event day on Saturday with local trail guides, a Braap-athalon team relay, Revelution yoga, swim sessions and a barbecue awards dinner.

Morning yoga from Revelution fitness prepped the girls for the long day ahead. Shuswap Xtreme was on site with Beta bike demos and Save on Foods provided healthy snacks and fuel.

With dark and stormy forecasts, the girls got lucky as the sun came out just before the ride started. With 26 rally checkpoints, four hours and more than 80 kilometres of trails to utilize, the groups explored as much as they could before the afternoon event.

A refreshing swim in Lake Revelstoke made for an energetic group, who rallied at the Revy Riders motocross track for the Braap-athalon team relay.

The event wrapped up with a buffet dinner and awards at the Glacier House pub. With a combination of her rally checkpoints score and the riders poll, the winner was Maureen “Mo” Hutchinson, an event regular and clear crowd favourite from Peachland, B.C.

The Revy Riders would like to thank all of the local sponsors for the event. Stoke FM, Somewon Collective, Society Snow & Skate, Infinite Powersports, Skookum, Rough Country Marine, Downie Timber, Revelution Fitness, Bettes Underthings, Free Spirit Sports, Save on Foods and Shuswap Xtreme.
