In just two short years, Elena Myers has made quite a name for herself in the AMA Pro Racing community. In her first season as a pro rider, she made history by becoming the first female to win an AMA Pro Road Racing sprint race with a SuperSport West victory at Infineon Raceway in 2010. Myers achieved her second career win at Daytona International Speedway in March 2012, becoming the first woman ever to win a professional motorsports race at the famous racetrack. She began racing mini roadrace bikes with her father when she was just eight years old and four years later in 2005, she caught the eye of Team Hammer’s owner John Ulrich. Ulrich sponsored Myers for the next few years under the RoadracingWorld.com banner in the U.S. Grand Prix Racers Union Series, as well as the Western Eastern Racing Association. Myers, who turns 18 next month, has natural talent and a competitive edge that will make her a threat to the competition for years to come.
In 2013, Elena signed a two-year agreement with the Castrol-Apex-Triumph team to ride a Triumph 675R in the AMA GoPro Daytona SportBike Series. In her first career start in Daytona SportBike on a new bike and with a new team, Elena posted a Top-10 finish at Daytona International Speedway. She then followed up that performance with a pair of Top-10 finishes at Road America.
