Ana did do well with all those young Latin hotheads that tend to knock each other off on the first and last laps. Although she only won 2 races all season she did enough to secure the title. She also got most of the money together by crowdfunding that several others have tried in the Spanish championships but they got behind her and showed that it can work. Well done

This is the bike thread though
Motorsport or motor sport is a global term used to encompass the group of competitive sporting events which primarily involve the use of motorised vehicles, whether for racing or non-racing competition. The terminology can also be used to describe forms of competition of two-wheeled motorised vehicles under the banner of motorcycle racing, and includes off-road racing such as motocross.

Sorry but that series is intended for young, up and coming racers, at an age limit under the age of Moto3.

Not washed up female racers like Carasco and Herrera who have 10 years experience racing in GP racing and the support series.

it would be like John McPhee coming back to race in Motostar in the UK.

She is there coz she is Spanish, the series ie run by Spaniards and they want some publicity.

Fair play, she ride well and deserved to win, but let's not get ahead of ourselves, she and Herrera did nothing at all in Moto3, despite good records (which I now dispute) in the feeder series

Oh here we go again.

She did a great job in a series that anyone can compete in and kept herself together when everyone else threw it away. She thoroughly deserves the title

Couldn't agree more. Some of the posts in this thread are little short of pathetic.

Really?

You are jumping on the female bandwagon, typically in a male dominated sport. Oh lets slap the girl on the back, it's embarrassing.

She is what mid 20's? Years of experience in CIV and Moto3, what did you expect? Imagine of say Migno went back to this class, do you think he might do quite well?

The series is suppsed to be about kids even younger than Red Bull rookies, or should be. Not about Dorna pushing two women who were crap in Moto3 back into it again. On road bikes basically, in a series run by Spain.

Fair play, she rode well and deserved to win the title, as did both she and Herrera in Spain before their GP careers, but neither of them did chuff all in the big league, despite many chances, so what makes you think yet another shove in the back is going to do for them?
Think before you post, for the love of God
Please tell me.

I think one person does need to think before they post and it's definitely not me

I think one person needs to stop reacting to everything someone else posts and be a bit more individual, come up with ideas of their own, instead of just reacting to a username. But that's nothing new.

She won two races and was nowhere near winning in any others, in fact last 4 races she was outside the top 10! hardly great form.

Don't get me wrong, she is quick, she was in Spanish 125 years ago, but did chuff all in Moto3 as didn't Herrera.

My issue s with Dorna and the rules, the age limits should be 15 to 20, no older, as right now this series looks to some extent like a failed Moto3 riders retirement home.

There are riders in this formula in their mid 20's, it should be ONLY for teens or younger.

To be fair they did change the rules mid-season to a higher minimum weight so they had to add ballast to her bike. Maybe don't comment so strongly if you don't have all the facts.
