The report from CycleWorld states that this year, riders can look forward to 15 available slots, with the program now including seven racetracks into the equation – but that’s not the coolest part of this program for me.
“Each of the 15 participating women racers receives an INT650 and builds their respective machines under the guidance of crew chief Erik Moldenhauer,” states the report.
“Royal Enfield says Moldenhauer will provide technical advice and support throughout the build and race portions of the program, with Moto Anatomy X Royal Enfield racer Johnny Lewis helping to provide on-track training.”
What better way to ensure a fully customised and comprehensive approach to the track, than by getting to work on your own track bike under the guidance of top-notch ex-racer brains?
It’s not something I as a woman see very often – and I’m jazzed to see a push to support the growth of experienced chikitas for the twisties.
“Following our success of the last two seasons with the Royal Enfield ‘Build. Train. Race.’ program, it only made sense to go even bigger for 2022,” says Breeann Poland, marketing and communications lead for Royal Enfield Americas (and the one responsible for launching the darn thing).
