Royal Enfields' ladies back on tracks

Mikalya Moore, No. 78, in the lead, again.
She's back: Mikalya Moore returns to Royal Enfield racing for 2024.

 Royal Enfield North America named the road-racing and flat-track riders for its 2024 all-women Build Train Race program. 

It's BTR's fifth season challenging women riders to build up their Royal Enfield 650 twins and then take them racing in either MotoAmerica road racing or Progressive America Flat Track national championships. 

"We’re proud to continue developing racers on the track and creating role models in the sport for young motorcyclists," said Adrian Sellers, Royal Enfield's boss for Customs and Motorsports. 

BTR road racing starts Sunday, May 19 at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama, with races June 2 at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin; June 30 at Ridge Motorsports Park, Shelton, Washington; and Aug. 18 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio. Three-time world champion "Fast Freddy" Spencer returns to coach the program. 

BTR flat track racing starts March 7-8 at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida, with races April 27 at Texas Motor Speedway at Fort Worth, Texas; May 11 at Ventura Raceway in Ventura, California; and Aug. 6 at Black Hills Speedway in Rapid City, South Dakota. (One more race will be announced later.) Flat track and supermoto racer Johnny Lewis will return as program coach. 

The exciting Mikayla Moore, last year's BTR road racing championship winner, returns for this season. The American Motorcyclist Association named Moore its 2023 Female Racer of the Year.
