Daytona First for Elena Myers

Elena Myers Podium

18 year old Elena Myers became the first woman to win a professional motorcycle race at Daytona on Saturday (March 17) by taking the AMA Pro Motorcycle Superstore.com SuperSport race. It was the second win for Myers (she also won at Infineon in May 2010).  Myers edged out Suzuki rider Corey Alexander and Yamaha rider Hayden Gillim by .240 seconds for the historic win. Elena has been racing since age 8 and her goal is to one day race in the MotoGP. Last year at Indianapolis Speedway Myers impressed many when she was given the chance to ride Alvaro Bautista’s Suzuki GSV-R prototype MotoGP machine for a few hot laps. We’ll be hearing a lot more from her I’m sure.

    Cool.

    I wonder if she has one of those stickers on her street bike….. you know, the ones that say "you have just been passed by a girl."
