FIM Produces Video to Combat Grid Girl Stereotype

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

The FIM Commission for Women in Motorcycling has produced a video to combat the motorcycle race umbrella girl stereotype that many FIM sanctioned events have helped perpetuate. Part of a campaign called “Women Ride”, the video was created to not only change the perception of women in two-wheeled motorsport, but also encourage more members of the fairer sex to take up the male dominated hobby of motorcycle riding. 

Participating in the campaign and the video (below) are Leslie Porterfield (FIM Land Speed World Record Holder), Livia Lancelot (FIM Women’s Motocross World Champion) and Laia Sanz (FIM Women’s Trial World Champion).
