WTF! Elena Myers to ride Suzuki GSV-R MotoGP bike at Indianapolis

"Myers' laps are scheduled for 4 p.m. (ET) on the 16-turn, 2.621-mile road course. The Red Bull Indianapolis GP takes place Aug. 26-28 at IMS.
"Words cannot describe how excited I am to ride the Suzuki GSV-R at Indy during the MotoGP weekend this year," Myers said. "We had talked about it last year, but things didn't work out, so here's a big thanks to everyone involved for making this possible. When I sat on the bike last year, it felt like it was made to fit me. So actually being able to spin a few laps on it will be quite the treat. I'm really looking forward to the weekend." Myers finished fifth in the AMA Pro SuperSport West Division this season despite missing two races due to injury. She scored a podium finish at Barber Motorsports Park near Birmingham, Ala.
California native Myers made history last season by becoming the first woman to win an AMA Pro road race, winning the AMA SuperSport round at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif. That victory helped her finish second in the SuperSport West standings in 2010.
"We are delighted to be able to give Elena this opportunity to get some understanding of how Suzuki's MotoGP bike feels and operates," Denning said. "She is a very talented racer - not 'for a girl' - she's just fast, full-stop!
"MotoGP is the pinnacle of every racer's ambition, and there aren't so many people who have ridden the very latest 2011 GSV-R - Bautista, Hopkins, Aoki and now Elena! I would guess she's also the only female racer to have ever ridden an 800cc MotoGP machine? Either way, we really hope she enjoys the experience."

Just to clarify, the WTF in the title implied nothing but jealousy. Not hatin!

17 and taking a GP bike for a joy ride. My dad didn't trust me with a 89 Honda Civic when I was 17. And that was 2002...

Oh hell no. And I also follow her articles. (Best MC magazine hands down, but thats a whole other topic)

Trust me a purely jealous/excited WTF lol

Wondering if maybe Suzuki has the same thing in mind for her like they did with young Hopper....

She was supposed to ride it last year, but some legality or something like that because of her age prevented her from doing so. I asked her about it at the Progressive MC show in Long Beach last year.

She seemed nice enough and I've been keeping track of her since then. Hope she does well and enjoys the ride!
