RFME Spanish Motorcycle federation will be sending a full female team to contend the WMX Championship season, a first in the sport for the WMX Class.
To date, there has never been a women’s motorcycling team that has raced in a complete world championship. The initiative of the Spanish Motorcycle Federation whose objective is to promote the women’s team, named Las Leonas, has made it possible.
Daniela Guillén and Gabriela Seisdedos are the two riders who will represent Spain in the FIM Women’s Motocross World Championship that begins in the Czech Republic on July 24th.
Motocross is one of the motorsports where equality is beginning to be a reality. In the World Championship events, women race on the same tracks as men and during the same weekend with live television.
Both Daniela and Gabriela will compete onboard the KTM’s 2022 250SXF machines, which Gabriela changed bikes at the beginning of the season and her participation in the National championship has allowed her to adapt to the new bike. For Daniela, the change has been quite a challenge this season, she went from a KTM 85SX to the 250SXF a great leap for her, who has more than proven to have adapted during the Spanish championship competing against the best Spanish MX2 riders.
The team is supported by Lastlap, the company in charge of organizing the Spanish Motocross Grand Prix that will take place in Arroyomolinos on October 16 and 17. The strong and innovative commitment to the creation of this project, whose purpose is to remain in time, is a step forward to promote the female category.
