Elena Myers Will Lap the Rizla Suzuki GSV-R at Indy GP

Home » Racing » Elena Myers Will Lap the Rizla Suzuki GSV-R at Indy GP


AMA Pro Supersport racer Elena Myers will have a chance to flog one of the Rizla Suzuki GSV-R bikes at the Indianapolis GP this year. Getting an opportunity to acquaint herself with the MotoGP machinery, Myers will do a few laps at 12:45 PM on Thursday before the Indy GP, in a PR event put together by American Suzuki. After a similar publicity event fell-through last year, the ride will be Myers’s first on a GP bike, and hopefully a glimpse into the future, as the young California native has made it clear that the premier class is where she wants to take her career.

“Words cannot describe how excited I am to ride the Suzuki GSV-R at Indy during the MotoGP weekend this year,” said Myers. “We had talked about it last year, but things didn’t work out, so here’s a big thanks to everyone involved for making this possible. When I sat on the bike last year, it felt like it was made to fit me. So actually being able to spin a few laps on it will be quite the treat. I’m really looking forward to the weekend.”

For the Rizla Suzuki team, the event means a little bit more press for its MotoGP effort, which has been gaining steam all season long. Suzuki’s plans for MotoGP next season are still a bit dubious, with Paul Denning and his squad likely to continue running their 800cc machine, despite the rest of the grid’s move to 1,000-ish bikes.

“We are delighted to be able to give Elena this opportunity to get some understanding of how Suzuki’s MotoGP bike feels and operates,” said Paul Denning. “She is a very talented racer – not ‘for a girl’ – she’s just fast full-stop! MotoGP is the pinnacle of every racer’s ambition, and there aren’t so many people who have ridden the very latest 2011 GSV-R – Bautista, Hopkins, Aoki and now Elena! I would guess she’s also the only female racer to have ever ridden an 800cc MotoGP machine? Either way, we really hope she enjoys the experience.”

She's getting her foot in the door thats for sure.

With some of the wildcard rides being scooped up it amazes me why they don't get someone like Eslick to field as a wildcard someone thats going to give the team the best exposure.

She needs a few wins, 1 SS Championship and a season in the Spanish CEV on a Moto2 bike. Then a season with the boys in Moto GP in the 2.

On the subject of female racers:
14-Year-Old Canadian Stacey Nesbitt First Woman to Win a National Road Racing Title

Organizers are claiming Nesbitt is the first woman to win a national road racing series competing against men in the Honda CBR125R Challenge class. We're still verifying that, but keep in mind she's also only 14 and one of the youngest in the series.

She's also Canadian so there's a bit of Canuck pride from this corner.

Talking carbon fiber

Carbon fiber is a super strong material that's also extremely lightweight.


Carbon fiber is basically very thin strands of carbon -- even thinner than human hair. The strands can be twisted together, like yarn.

Although carbon fiber is very expensive, it’s very popular. It has a fantastic weight-to-strength ratio.


Its strength and weight make it ideal for electric cars, sports cars and luxury cars.

Weiners are a food product.

Weiners are made with animal parts and seasoning.

Although weiners are tasty, they don't have much nutrition. They may cause stomach distress.

Their shape and size make them ideal for eating out of the hand.
