no kidding - the pace of the pass was one thing - but seeing how big a gap she put on them in the seconds after the pass was quite something. I hope I can ride like a girl one day.

I've followed her racing career for awhile, ever since I saw her at Portland Int'l Raceway. She was racing 125 & 250 gp, she was always at the front of the pack, and was a pleasure to watch. waytogo

No

So that caused me to search, and I found this.  Says she couldn't secure enough funding to race in 2016:

That may be, but that isn't why she quit racing.

Yeah. I got side tracked and forgot to drop in that article that DP did.

Shameful and angering.
