Allow us to be a little sexist here, but dirtbike girls rule.
What’s the right term anyway? Dirtbike ladies? Dirtbike females? Dirtbike women? We’re just going to respectfully call them dirtbike girls, and when it comes to dirtbike girls, we’re big fans of Canada’s Megan Griffiths.
The 26-year-old from Kenowna, British Columbia, was a late-bloomer when it comes to dirtbike riding. She didn’t buy her first dirtbike until she was 16, but she has already become one of the country’s most talented dirtbike girls. Proof positive of that was Griffiths representing her country on Team Canada at the 2016 International Six Days Enduro, where she and fellow Canadians Shelby Turner and Felicia Robichaud came home sixth in the Women’s World Trophy competition.
When not racing internationally, Griffiths competes in the Pacific North West Motorcycle Association events with support from Husqvarna. She considers Chris Birch and Graham Jarvis as her riding hereoes, and she patterns her training after extreme enduro riders than your average off-road rider. As for fellow dirtbike girls, Griffiths cites as fellow Canadian Victoria Hett as a great role model.
Griffiths’ favorite local race is the Desert 100 in Odessa, Washington, an event in which she has won the Women’s class and also come first overall in the second wave of riders. That’s interesting when you consider the event’s high-speed terrain is more akin to an AMA National Hare & Hound than an enduro or an extreme enduro, which only shows that as dirtbike girls go, Griffiths has both speed and technical skill. When not competing, Griffiths spends a lot of time filming and editing videos on her Megan Griffiths Enduro YouTube Channel and posting on her Megan Griffiths Racing Facebook page.
Griffiths’ latest video, shown above, is actually found on the Dirtbike Rider Channel on YouTube.
