Bridgette LeBer is a downhill mountain bike racer from Port Angeles, WA. She always wanted to ride motorcycles, and finally got her endorsement in 2015. After 2 years of street riding, she bought her first sportbike and leathers at Skagit Powersports and they brought her to her first track day. Her very first time riding that bike was at Pacific Raceways and she was immediately hooked. That winter she bought a ninja 250 racebike, and moved to California to start racing with AFM. She unknowingly threw herself into the deep end in motorcycle racing that way, and has been learning ever since!
When asked why Bridgette was keen on being part of the BTR program she responded
“I’ve loved going fast ever since I was a little kid zooming around on skis. Racing motorcycles is a lifelong dream of mine, and I’m determined to learn and work as hard as I can. This program is an incredible learning experience, and I can’t thank Royal Enfield enough for the opportunity.
I’ve never done flat track before but it looks like a blast and all the best road racers swear by it for training. I believe that we learn best by doing, and I’m beyond excited to dive in and learn all I can. In addition to everything I’m going to learn about building a bike and racing flat track, I’m also really excited to share the whole experience and encourage others to try riding, building bikes, and racing for themselves. The shop in Washington that has supported me from the very beginning of my road racing career, Skagit Powersports, is now a Royal Enfield dealer and I can’t wait to collaborate with them and showcase just what these fun and affordable Royal Enfield INT 650s are capable of!”
