Elena Myers is the first female to win an AMA Pro Road Racing sprint race and the first women to ever win a professional motorsports race at Daytona International Speedway. 2014 marks her second year with Castrol-Apex Triumph racing in the AMA Pro Daytona Sportbike, and she is an inspiration and role model to many.
I’ve been watcing Elena move up through the ranks of roadracing over the past few years and even enjoyed the eye opening opportuity of coaching her with the California Superbike School during her first ride at the famed Laguna Seca Raceway. I was impressed at the time with her speed and her eagerness and willingness to learn and take direction.
I recently caught up with her for a quick phone interview before the start of the season.
Good luck Elena!
