If you didn’t know already, let us be the first to tell you, women are taking over motorcycling. From motorcycle moms using the sport as a getaway to women winning motorcycle races, the demographic for motorcyclists is changing. And even though the latest achievement of a woman motorcycle racer isn’t on the racetrack, you can be certain that she’s probably going to get more girls to saddle up and ride.
CoverGirls Ride Motorcycles Too
When she was 12 years old, Shelina Moreda was given a dirtbike by her father. The bike was meant to help her do chores on the family’s dairy farm, instead it sparked an unforeseen passion. She was so taken by motorcycles that she started racing them.
Moreda would go on to become the first female to race a motorcycle at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. She was teammates with Melissa Paris as they became the first women to finish an endurance race at Suzuka Raceway. She became the first woman to race at Zhuhai International Circuit in China, where she came away with a podium finish. She even finished first at the 2015/2016 superbike round of the Women’s Championship in Qatar. So, what’s next for this trailblazing racer? Apparently, the world of modeling.
On October 5th, Shelina announced that she had been chosen to be one of CoverGirl’s latest models. This falls right into the racer’s wheel well considering that she is a fan of makeup. However, Moreda also runs a dirtbike camp for girls to inspire confidence and strength. That means this opportunity to be a CoverGirl is also a chance for her to spread the sport she loves to more girls all over the world. That could mean more women competing for the top spot on racing podiums everywhere. Will you be ready?
