Beauty tips for the Track!

Recommended Posts

Being female’s in a male dominated sport, we have quite a few different struggles. One of the things that are often overlooked is maintaining a "girly" image, even when we are riding in the dirt and mud, and smell like gas and sweat. So, What to do? Not to worry, QuadGirls.com is here to help! We have the tips and tricks to stay beautiful at the track after the helmet comes off.

Dirt on your face? Never a disgrace!

Situation: You had a great race, and came off the track to have a bunch of people waiting to take pictures, and congratulate you. Problem? The track was dusty, and you know your face is probably covered with the dirt and grime. No time to get to a shower, and no place to wash your face and nowhere to hide. What to do?!

Solution: Baby wipes can be a racing girls best friend. From dirty hands, to your face, a quick wipe can be perfect to clean up fast at the track when your away from a sink. Not to mention, they are ‘throw-aways’ and wont need washed which is especially important when you come back home.

Ware Wolf Legs Without the Full Moon?

Situation: You’re at a really warm track for the weekend with your truck, a tent, and a handy dandy port-a-john. After the race, you want to put some shorts on, but your legs are hairier than most of the men there. What to do?

Solution: Leg hair can grow so fast, but there are many ways to slow it down. Of course there is the traditional waxing gimmicks that supposedly “don’t hurt”, and I wish you luck with that. But for me, keeping my legs clean shaved starts before I leave for the weekend. Shaving with hair conditioner will leave you leg hair thinner, softer, and less noticeable. This quick fix will last a few days, and although your hair will grow, it wont be as easy to see.

Crampin Your Style?

Situation: It’s that wonderful time of month once again, but this time its also a big race or ride. Your cramping up so bad you can barely stand up, let alone ride. To tell the guys “I can’t ride today” is defiantly out of the question, but riding seems to be to much too. What to do??

Solution: For some time now, women have been able to look to menstrual pills such as Midol to solve some of the cramping and bloating. Midol can often be a very useful tool, and for some, is enough. For other ladies, a stick on heating pad by Playtex can be a great relief, and will move with you when your ride.

Helmet Fro’s are for the Bro’s

Situation: You just came back from a great ride, and you’re about to take your helmet off and strut your stuff through the pits, until you remember what’s under that helmet… HELMET HAIR!!!

Solution: When you’re riding, a helmet is always a must, which also means helmet hair. Not to fear, lady racers/riders have been working on this folly for quite some time. Racers such as Angela Moore and Heather Byrd wear their hair in a French braid to keep it neat and together under the helmet. For the ladies who don’t have the dreads for braids, try using a bandana. Bandana’s are cheap, and can be stylish. It’s easy to get a color that matches your outfit, and can be worn under the helmet and will keep sweat out of your eyes.

All In all, as ladies and racers, we have a little more to struggle with than just the average guy. Keep these tips in mind and you can keep beauty in racing.

I use a straightner on my hair and get it really straight and leave it down before I race...when I race I pull it back and use bobbi pins or barettes to hold down the fly aways....when I get back to the truck I pull the pony tail out and keep my brush on the front side of the truck...it may be too much work for some, but I love leaving my hair down, sometimes when I have it up I feel like too much of a boy :) Hope that helps!

Yeah I love the tips, and even tho riding with the guys is a thing, I leave my hear down sometimes straight sometimes curly. When we go mudding it gets covered in it, but you know what I am there to show my stuff not to parade around looking good. I want them to notice how I ride not necessarily how I look.

To avoid may hair from being tangled, I usually tie it before I race. To make sure that my hair is still beautiful and in place after the ride. Hair is the girl's crowning glory. So we really do everything to make it look nice and healthy. Just like our skin, it is the most important organ in our body so it makes sense to provide the right kind of care that will preserve it. And speaking of skin I would like to share the product that I am using now, the Triple Action Vitamin C Serum by VoilaVe. Serums has the ability to go deeper into the skin and it’s high level of active ingredients (ten times more effective then cream alone!) means it can help battle many common beauty complaints. Better give it a try. You can find it on Amazon.

I must be one of the lucky ones. I leave my hair down and it stays flowing and beautiful even after I take my helmet off.

      Just wanted to let all quad riders / racers know there is a oval dirt track race this sunday at Beever Creek Raceway. I spoke with the promoter and no special tires are required so if your curious or have been taking a break from racing, come on down and check it out.
      Home Page
      The website has the wrong date listed. The race will be on Sunday the 27th, not Saturday the 26th as listed on the beevercreekspeeday site.
      please see

      Hope to see you there!........ On SUNDAY

      I had put a "Teaser" video on Youtube a day or two ago, but didn't put it on the forum. Here's the full version of the "Last Track Ride of The Season".
      Sure hate to see the tracking season come to an end ... but it's only about 234 days from now until it returns, so .. PRAY FOR SNOW !! :woot:
      We had a fantastic day on the snow & this video is longer than usual for me. There was just to much good stuff & I still left a lot of good stuff out of this. So, grab some popcorn & sit back & enjoy this 15 1/2 minute movie !! :lurk5c:
      Hope you enjoy it ....

      Put a little video together using timelapse ... what a pain ... of installing the tracks on my Can-Am. I didn't include taking the front A-Arms guards off, the rear CV Boot protectors off, of me greasing the bike, fixing a loose front brake rotor, and swapping out the Elka's for my Can-Am HPG shocks for the winter.
      Anyway, hope you enjoy the video .... Now … if it would JUST SNOW !!
