Racing's Not Just for Boys

Always Finish the Race
I have started racing at the tender age of 29.
I bought a pitbike - Stomp 140cc and I am entered in a racing league consisting of 21 riders. Having never ridden such a small bike before, I am finding it a challenge, so being the only rookie this year (everyone else has done at least one full season) I am proud to say I am currently 14th in the championship out of 21. I'm the only lady racing this year, and indeed the first girl to enter this championship.
I'm not doing it for fame or glory, just to see if I'm any good.
I try to colour co-ordinate my kit, wear a feminine helmet and I am the only rider in white.
