THE chance is here for female motocross enthusiasts to rip in and have a go.

Why should the boys have all the fun in the dirt now the Go Girl racing motocross series is back in 2013, after a year off.

The Go Girl series is the longest running female motocross series in the country, bringing together the best female riders in Queensland as well as interstate.

In a first for the series this year the promoters have included two novice classes for female (junior and senior).

Organisers Les Jones and Dean Taylor said these two classes are for girls who ride but have never raced and want to give it a try.

"Girls entering the novice classes will not require a competitive license, but will purchase a day license for the event," Taylor said.

Two of Queensland's best riders, Cheyenne Taylor (Dean's daughter) and Alexa Whyte are excited the series is back and want to encourage girls of all ability to enter.

"While we race boys at club level and other series, it's great to have a series of our own," Alexa added.

The Go Girl Off Road Series kicks-off on February 9-10 at the Queensland Moto Park, Boonah.

It is a two-day event with practice on Saturday and racing on Sunday. For more information visit gogirlracing.com.au.
