Need "IronWomen" for TSCO Vegas to Reno

Recommended Posts

I am going to try to get an actual "Iron Woman" class made in the Vegas to Reno race in August.

I plan on doing the event, if all goes well. I need 2-3 other females that want to "IronWoman" the event in order to get a class of "our own".

Anyone interested in doing a long distance race in August? If so, please PM me or e mail me at revjaybird@yahoo.com .

It's approx. 600 miles in a day. "IronWoman" would mean that each of us in the class ride our own race, this is not a team race.

You need a decent bike (full sized race bike not an 80, 100, etc), good lights, and a pit crew or money to pay for Honda to pit you and the entry fee.

peace,

janette

Ok, then feel free to contact them. My idea is not to make a class of basically Pro level women. They could have done that all by themselves. They certainly don't need my help. LOL

I am trying to make a class for true amature level women to compete. I think it would be cool.

Well, just an idea. You wanted more women to race, and not a whole lot of ams are going to be up to that kind of event. but i do hope you find someone.

By making a "women's" class, I was hoping to eliminte the intimidation factor of having to race with men. (read: have no hopes of being competitive) By setting up the class to race with Pro level women, it kind puts that intimidation factor right back again.

If they want to come, great! More power to them! Seriously, no ill will at all! I would think, though, that they've had the opportunity at their grasp. They are also good enough to be competitive in their own right in the existing men's classes.

I've frequently "competed" against Kelly.....she can kick my ass hands down. I chased the nationals with her 2 years ago. We know each other. I wasn't kidding when I said I'd rather bug her to ride a sidecar with me.

I don't need a lot of arms.....just 2-3. I'd think on the biggest motorcycle site in the world, this would be the place to find someone interested.

I have faith. :thumbsup:

I'd rather spend my money on the Colorado Gold Rush in August. A week of riding in the Colorado Rockies sounds much more fun! Good luck though Thorina.

that seems unfair. what about us men that have no hopes of being competitive? :thumbsup::bonk:

it might actually be fun to ride it more as a high-speed ride than a race, but i'm not much of a chick so you probably don't care if i might be interested anyway.

if a few chicks do decide to race, and i have time, i might be talked into helping out with pit stop support or something, especially if i get to drive someone else's rig and burn their gas. heck, even if it's just male tt-ers racing, i might be interested in doing that.

I would totally be into doing the race if I had the time or money. Both are pretty limited this year.

I am in the same position. The race is right smack dab in the middle of a semi-planned trip to Europe. That's why I am starting early to either get this off the ground or drop it.

I am thinking that if I can get women to commit....I can then start pounding the streets for sponsorships to help cover the costs. Entry fees, pit support, etc.

But, it's hard to walk in and talk to a sponsor saying...."Um, der...I dunno, teeheehee, maybe some women might want this.....um....der...teeheehee". LOL

Velo.....we'd love to have you as an honorary woman running our pits!!!!!! I'll even buy you a thong just for the occasion. <wink>
