As I continue my journey writing in the Powersports industry, I find myself running into some pretty amazing women. 

From my time had with history-making racer Shayna Texter-Bauman, the ‘Most Winningest Rider,’ to seeing success after success hit Vanessa Ruck as she tackles the world’s most rugged two-wheel compatitions, all the way to picking Amber Spencer’s brain on new innovative technologies in electric motorcycles, the lineup has been incredible.

Couple the successes of these lovely ladies with the fact that the amount of women on motorcycles have been increasing as of late, and we totally get why the Italian Motorcycle Federation (IMF), or Federazione Motociclistica Italiana (FMI) has created a whole new championship for women.
