I’m so excited to announce the project that I’ve been working on for two years… a book all about badass motorcycling women! In the MotoLady’s Book of Women Who Ride you’ll meet 74 of the most influencial motorcyclists of the last century. Motorcycle heroes, trailblazers, and record-breakers like Jessi Combs, Shayna Texter, Laia Sanz, Gloria Tramontin-Struck, the Van Buren sisters, and more can be found inside the 184 pages of this hard cover book celebrating motorcycling women!
Silvia Rojo’s Cafe Racer Photography
Silvia Rojo is a photographer based in Barcelona, Spain, whose favorite subjects include Cafe Racer motorcycles.
She often photographs races for custom and cafe racers, and sent me some of her favorite images of lady rider (and one of her hubby). “From September 5 to September 7 of last year, I attended one of the best and crowded concentrations of Cafe Racers of Europe, Glemseck 101 in Leonberg, Stuttgart (Germany). Spectacular location in an old track racing between a thick forest. Along the principal road there are different stands of builders motorcycles and brands. At the heart of everything a stage with live shows, food and drinks stands. The people here is very nice and happy.
About bike racing, this celebrate in a straight line of 1/8 miles. Two bikes riders go out in parallel, it is really exciting!”
The races were called the 101 Spring International, and the 101 Classic Racer Sprint.
