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.


What are some beauty tips you ladies have to share?

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.

      I was looking online and saw some cool lifted ATVs and figured I'd start a topic. Please post if you have pics or if you find some cool lift kit ATV photos or videos online, let's keep the topic going. I just added this one in the gallery but you can just add them in this topic also.

      So here’s a question. I have seen a few members that have recently purchased a used bike/ATV.   Also a HUGE amount of so called new members who have purchased a used bike and have come here “just here for a manual”.
      Some have been disappointed with the bikes and or knew they were getting a broken bike with some mechanical  experience thinking hey I can fix it.   So here’s my take on buying a used bike. Anyone who has followed some of mine and other members posts about what to look for when buying a used bike here’s a few pointers on what to look for. 
      1. I always check the oil and look for moisture, metal shavings and color. 
      2. Feel the compression or take a compression tester with you. 
      3. Check for spark (if the bikes not running)
      4. Take a small jumper pack to verify that the starter cycle works and the bike cranks.
      5. Look for bent or cracked frame/welding that was done on the frame from maybe a wreck.
      5. Mismatch plastics by looking under neath.  
      7. Bolts on the engine/frame that look like they are stripped from someone taking the bike apart. 
      8. Any kind of scilicone or gasket adhesive that was used on a cover plate or engine seem where the engine was taken apart.  
      9. Patches on the exhaust pipes with sheet metal or jb weld patch material.  
      10. Wiring messes on the harness like bundles of tape where the harness was opened up and taped up  for an after market device or just plain butchered up.  
      11. Put the bike in gear (running or not) and roll the bike back and forth to see that the gears work and you feel resistance like the engine is trying to spin while pushing it forward as if you were push starting it   
      12. I keep a vin# decoder website on my phone as a favorite to double check the year of the bike .
      All though nothing is fool proof these tips will help you along while buying a used bike. Not only that but  it will help you negotiate a fair price for a bike that may have one of the above problems.  
      I have minimized this entire process down to about 15 mins. I buy all the time so I don’t expect you to do the same or have a compression tester etc but use some of these tips when buying and go into the purchase with confidence! 
      I would like to hear anyone else that has any input on buying a bike and what to  look for!

      Hi all, does anyone know what type of plastic is used for making ATV fairings.
      In particular Suzuki Quadrunner 1992, if i cannot get a plastic for it in Red for the rear i will attempt repair.
      I have a King Chrome plastic welding kit, however you need to know what type of plastic you are welding.
      Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

      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 !!
