Female riders Shelina Moreda AMA Pro Racing Indianapolis

The last frontier on the “first to” records in the world of motorcycling could be from female riders.
After Elena Myers was the first woman to get an AMA Pro victory and will lap Indianapolis on the Suzuki GSV-R this year, Shilena Moreda will be the first female rider to compete at Indianapolis this weekend in AMA Pro Racing.

That’s quite a first considering the 100-year history behind this track.
Moreda says:I am very excited to be a part of this huge race, and to not only be the first female to race in the AMA Pro XR1200 class, but the first female ever in the 100-year history of the track to race on a motorcycle at Indy! My father is a huge fan of the Brickyard, and we were naturally excited about racing at a track that has strong ties to the dairy industry.

That last comment comes from the fact that Moreda learned to ride bikes while growing up on a dairy farm.
And she has one other claim to fame – being a former District 3 California Dairy Princess.

She’s apparently a fourth-generation motorcycle racer and a fifth-generation dairy farmer meaning she could be right at home in the historic atmosphere of the track.
Nice stuff from our female riders!
