WHAT IS YOUR ROLE/POSITION IN MOTORCYCLING?
Competing as a A-level rider in Superstock 600 class in the Norwegian, Swedish and Nordic championships. Started in my first race in the junior class, followed by rookie 600 and the latest years in the Superstock 600, which is the highest 600-class in Scandinavia.
HOW DID YOU GET INTO MOTORCYCLING?
There is a beautiful racetrack only 30 minutes from where I live, where my dad took me up to watch a race when I was 12 years old. At that point there was an all - women class and I immediately got inspired and wanted to try riding a bike. Although i was held back a little by my parents due to my young age, I didn't give up, and got to start with trial bike before I got my very own 125cc Aprilia RS. And it has only escalated ever since..
WHAT DO YOU LIKE/ENJOY IN MOTORCYCLING?
What I enjoy about motorcycling is first of all the Adrenalin and amazing feeling about controlling such a powerful machine. Pushing my own limits builds confidence, and competing with the boys also shows that its not all about size and strength, girls can do this too!
WHAT IS YOUR OBJECTIVE, YOUR GOAL?
In competition, my goal is to be among the best riders in Scandinavia. But I mostly compete with myself and want to improve as a rider, as a fast lap-time doesn't necessarily make you a good rider.
WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND MOTORCYCLING?
I would highly recommend motorcycling to other women easily because its so much fun! It builds your confident, it makes your brain work faster to make safe decisions in which you can trust. The environment among bikers are social and friendly, and women are taken good care of.
DO YOU HAVE A ROLE MODEL/MENTOR THAT ENCOURAGED YOU?
I found out by myself that I wanted to ride, but my dad has always been there for me to pick me up after a crash and fix my bike, and encouraged me to continue and helped me improve. He has been my mentor and mechanic through 10 years of racing, and he is still up for the task!
