International professional racer and CoverGirl model, Shelina Moreda grew up riding motorcycles on her family’s dairy farm in Northern California, USA.
She got a dirtbike when she was 12 years old and the love for two wheelers grew from there. She says “My dad never knew what he was starting when he made us do chores on the motorcycles, like bringing the cows in from the fields”.
She started racing nine years ago, after getting her racing license the first time she was ever on track. She obtained her AMA Professional license immediately following her novice year. Shelina was raised to believe she could do anything she set her mind to, and what she dreamed of was being out there dicing with the guys she saw on TV. She says she is just crazy enough to turn that into a goal and chase the dream.
Shelina races at the Pro level in the USA, China, Qatar, Japan, and Europe. She has several “firsts” to her career, including being the first female to race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on a motorcycle, as well as the first female team to complete any Suzuka endurance race.
Most recently, she became the first female to race the Zhuhai International Circuit in China where she finished 3rd on the Splitlath EBR Superbike. She also finished first in the Women's Championship in Qatar in 2016.
Shelina is a leader in the industry for branding, exposure, and representation of brands as a sports model and spokesperson. She commands a high level of media attention and is growing her brand to represent her marketing partners at an even higher level beyond racing.
Shelina also runs She'z Moto Camp, an all-female motorcycle skills school that focuses on building confidence and inspiring people to build their goals. It's Shelina's dream to craft an army of powerful females who support each other, push each other, and have high expectations for each other. She is featured in the new television show, Motorcycle Startup, which profiles her racing and her girl's dirtbike camps, and she is also a speaker at conferences and expos.
