"I myself don't have a diesel car now."



Yeah, that's what I figured.

Default Let Her Ride

As long as she's got the talent, Let Her Ride!



I just hope she doesn't get wadded-up and we all have to put up with a LifeTime movie about her.



I can see it now..."She fought Adversity and men, Pain and men, Self-doubt and men, PMS and men, Dark Roots and men!" I can't imagine the used-to-be twenty-something-actress they'd get to play her (Please God! Don't let her get hurt!).

women racers are fine. I just don't want to see women running things.



Give women a little bit of power over anything and they immediately regulate the fun right out of it.

What do you mean "fresh ideas"? Why, every year we get new paint jobs on the overweight V-twins and .001% better suspension on the sportbikes. What more could you ask for?

Didn't take him long to get right back to form. He started right in the the "longride censorship" bullshyt. So much for "lurking and learning". Honor his promise?? Not a chance.

The "why don't we see more woman racing" question is a good one. It can't be because of height. Plenty of fast short guys out there. What makes someone successful as a roadracer? As far as physical differences, it seems that someone who is in outstanding physical condition without being heavy and "bulked up" could have an advantage. (Have to be strong and with endurance, but not a linebacker type. No?) Plenty of woman athletes fit that bill. Concentration? Endurance? Coordination? Competitiveness? Intelligence? (Reading an interview with Rossi and his team manager, these guys have a carefully thought out strategy.) Last I checked, none of these traits require testicles.



So, why don't we see 4-5 woman in the starting grid at every AMA race? Lots of reasons I'm sure but don't pretend to know. I'm convinced we'd all be better off if had more people involved in the sport.



The good news is, as I seem to remember reading, the number of woman participating in the sport is trending upwards. Maybe participation in racing just naturally lags a few years behind.

Jessica's website is: www.roadracinggirl.com



Better think the next time we tell someone they're riding like a girl. A Girl might walk up to you and offer to PROVE that YOU are not as fast as one! There is also a Woman that scored points in MOTOGP's 250 class last year, I'll bet She could SMOKE almost ALL of us!
