2008 | Leslie Porterfield
Leslie Porterfield is a multi-record holder for land speed racing at the Bonneville Salt Flats. Jutta Kleinschmidt won the Ladies Trophy in the 1992 Paris-Dakar Rally, being the first woman to finish the race and placing 23rd in the motorbike class. During the race in 1997 she led two stages, becoming the first woman to do so in the history of the desert rally. And in 2010 Elena myers became the first woman to win an AMA Pro Racing sprint road race.
Women have been riding motorcycles all over the world, and over the years this became easier thanks to the better infrastructure, open borders, better bikes and other improvements. REV’IT! riders such as Nita (We Love MotoGeo), Cristina (Madnomad), Sarah Lezito (stuntrider see P38.), are constantly searching for their next adventure, pushing themselves to the limit. Luckily we are far past the point where women would be arrested for wearing men’s leather riding pants, as happened during the adventures of the sisters van Buren.

And today if someone wins a motorcycle race and takes her helmet off to reveal she’s a woman, she’s more likely to be celebrated than scorned. Today, women can wear clothes that match their style in every aspect, and REV’IT! is proud to support female riders however we can. History has proven that nothing will stop a determined woman on a motorcycle, and our range of women’s specific motorcycle gear has been designed to keep women safe and stylish as they chase after their next challenge and discover their next adventure.
