Seven women riders are participating in Royal Enfield’s Build Train Race program where they will race each other during three MotoAmerica events.
Royal Enfield introduced the participants of the inaugural Build Train Race (BTR) road racing program with a ceremony during the MotoAmerica event at Road America, in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. The venue isn’t very far from Royal Enfield’s North America headquarters in Milwaukee. Six participants were introduced as part of Royal Enfield’s Build Train Race program. Trisha Dahl, Becky Goebel, Scarlett Grosslangehorst, CJ Lukacs, Kayla Theisler and Michaela Trumbull were introduced along with the Royal Enfield Continental GT 650 bikes they personally converted into racebikes under the mentorship of professional road racer Melissa Paris. The racebike of BTR participant Alyssa Bridges was also displayed, but Bridges could not attend the event due to a prior commitment.
The BTR participants will race their Royal Enfields against each other in special exhibition races during three MotoAmerica events in 2021: July 30-August 1 at Brainerd International Raceway, August 13-15 at Pittsburgh International Race Complex, and September 17-19 at Barber Motorsports Park.
Royal Enfield has continued its technical partnership with S&S Cycle, collaborating on projects including the Build Train Race (BTR) road racing and flat track programs in the US. The motorcycles developed by the BTR participants have several racing parts which are custom built by S&S Cycles.
