FIM to develop more womens' race camps for 2014

1 of 1

The FIM Women’s Commission have announced that they will continue the development of its track activities for 2014, starting with a race camp to be held at Almeria in February in cooperation with BMW.

Women´s Commission Director Nita Korhonen said “the first ever FIM training camp for women organised last October at the Albacete circuit in Spain exceeded all our expectations. The female riders who attended the camp were eager for more training and many others who were not able to make this first camp were keen to benefit from such an opportunity in the future.”

“With such an enthusiastic response, the FIM Women’s Commission is organising more training camps in 2014 to offer female riders the chance to train and improve their Road Racing skills. We were extremely satisfied with the partnership with BMW Motorrad last year: participants really enjoyed racing with the S1000RR machines provided by BMW Motorrad. We will renew this fruitful cooperation for 2014 and will also receive support from Bike Promotion.”

The camp will include on-track and off-track instruction from a host of experts and star riders, including Britain’s own Maria Costello.

“Being part of FIM’s Women Commission is an honour and I'm very pleased to play an active role in FIM Women Road Racing Training Camps this year”, said Maria.
