Now, women who dream of racing their sportbike on a racetrack can learn from the some of the best in the world at an upcoming training camp to be held February 17 – 19, 2014 at the Almeria Race Circuit in Spain. Yes, Spain! So start planning now! This event comes on the heels of the first FIM Women’s Road Racing Training Camp held last October that proved to be very popular. So, if youre serious and have the cash, this is is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Enjoy checking out the exciting photos below from the last event followed by more details.
The FIM training camp is designed for women competing, or those who want to compete, in road racing. The three-day event will consist of training activities, track sessions (timed), as well as non-sporting workshops (sponsoring, nutrition etc.). One of the goals of the training camp is to identify future road racing champions.
