Love for Katja

Everybody likes to occasionally brag about how fast they are. Some of us even race in sanctioned events to prove our mettle against like-minded and similarly-equipped individuals.

Real men on real bikes on a real track, mano a' mano -- until Katja, the 24-year old female racer from Germany blows by you like you were towing a barge...

Katja Poensgen: Faster than the fellas.Humilty is a good thing, or so they say. And her second place finish at Misano proved that she could not only run with the big boys, but smoke most of them as well. Doesn't hurt that she's easy on the eyes, too.

Let us know what you think about women racers like Katja. And, at the risk of damaging our fragile male egos, wish a sister good luck!
